Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Jennifer Thomas
"This is one of the most amazing stories that have come from the mind of Lori Lopez. This Bone Man is a character that equals a force to be reckoned with.
From one mansion that becomes a number of different things in it's years including a sanitarium, but the one thing it really was is a place where murder was always going to happen. When a psychic buys the old place to record and try to contact the poor victims of this evil building he bites off more than he can chew."
Amazon.com, Parent's Little Black Book - Karen Doering
"Funny, quirky and full of interesting twists Fossill will make you think twice about things that go bump in the night.

Very imaginatively written by the author, Ms. Lopez, it is a definite must read for those who like their horror ghoulish and fun. At about 18 pages it is a quick easy read perfect for lunch hour or an extended coffee break.

Parent's Little Black Book"
Amazon.com - Jaime Johnesee
"This may seem biased as she is one of my favorite authors, but the style Lori R Lopez uses makes even the most horrifying tales fun to read. With the grace of a lyrical ballerina she doesn't tell you a story, she pulls you in and keeps you there until the end. Fossil is no different in that respect, but it delivers fear in a way you don't expect. I really enjoyed her work here as well as in her other books and I have no doubt you will too."
Amazon.com - Vix Kirkpatrick
"Not sure what depths Lori's brain has, but it goes pretty deep... another brilliant story, with a really good start, gooey middle and amazing ending!
as usual with Lori her characters are rounded, unforgettable and usually eaten fairly gruesomely!
I love being surprised by Lori's writing some times she is all twisty turney, other times poetic, occasionally she throws this sort of story out that is gigglesome funny yet shuddering grotesque but every time she is beautifully erudite."
Amazon.com - Noctem (unknown)
"A history of horrific violence pervades the mansion built upon the burial ground of an ancient evil. The short tale centers on a psychic's attempt to contact the spirits of those who have perished throughout the mansion's past. Lopez tells the tale with an almost poetic prose imbued with a subtle sense of humor. Recommended."

    I recommend this story to any and all horror addicts...

    Any scary story lover will be drawn into this story from the very first sentence. Who is this demon? Where did he come from? Where did he go? Why is this crabby old lady standing outside a creepy old mansion with her dog? The shocking answers await in Fossil.
