Overview

These thirteen offbeat tales encompass an array of genres from Horror and Fantasy to Science Fiction, Historic, and Mythic under one roof.

However, there is nothing common about these tales.

13. THE THIRTEENTH TALE
Have you ever read a story you couldn't put down? This is one those tales . . . A "gripping" account of literature that becomes too literal.

What is an Author's Draft? It is an original concept devised by Lori R. Lopez. Much like a Director's Cut in film, it is the author's true voice, the author's pure and untampered vision!

Editorial Reviews

Geri Small-Graham
A great read! An odious scary tale begins your journey; attacks by ear-demons! Then a walk in the desert followed by a walk inside the author's head and wind up arguing with yourself! Quirky, supernatural, mad, funny, scary...each tale has its own characters and all of them are Ms Lopez!
Jennifer Thomas

Every story in this book leaves you wanting more and when you finish it you feel a satisfaction in you mind like no other. So many of the stories hold the emotions of this brilliant writer and you can actually feel what the characters feel and see through their eyes. The pictures that these stories paint in your mind are like no other. If you like short story books then this one is for you!!!
