About the Author

Lori R. Lopez has long been a friend to eight-legged freaks and most manner of crawly-creepers with six or four limbs (even some with two or three). A wee child, she would rescue insects and spiders from the menaces of shoes and a turtle-feeding brother. As an unusual little girl, Lori held funerals for the creatures she couldn’t save. Considered a rather odd adult, she and her sons have continued to protect such critterlings around them. A spider is even the main character of Lori’s novel THE FAIRY FLY. Strange, isn’t it? Not that she’s obsessed or anything. Heh-heh. So her house has a few too many cobwebs . . . what does that prove? Stephen King has a spiderweb on his front gate! You don’t hear people talking about him. And even if you do, it’s because he’s a famous writer. Lori might never be quite that famous. Who is? But that’s no reason not to talk about her! Maybe you should talk about her. It might be nice, unless what you’re saying isn’t nice, in which case you should think twice before talking about other people. However, if you should meet Lori and she doesn’t have a chance to run the opposite direction for fear you’re a crazed autograph-hound, you will probably notice an assortment of spiders emerge from below her brim or cap or beret. This is nothing to worry about. They protect her from the monsters who lurk under hats and are terribly afraid of — you guessed it — spiders.

Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite A newlywed couple awakens one morning to find themselves cocooned in spider webs in the horrifying suspense novella Spider Soup by Lori R. Lopez. Jordan and Darcy are newly married and have recently moved into Jordan's Great-Aunt Zinnia's home. When Jordan's eccentric aunt died, she left him the house with the admonition to care for its inhabitants as she had. Although a bizarre stipulation, the couple complied with the old woman's request and diligently refrained from harming any spiders that lodged under the roof. However, one morning the couple woke up to an unwelcome and unpleasant surprise. Their walls and ceilings were encased in spider webs. Not only were their surroundings obscured by massive woven arachnid tapestries, but they too were bound in millions of sticky strands. While an innumerable variety of spiders were crawling all over their bodies, Jordan and Darcy had second thoughts about their previous decision to adhere to Aunt Zinnia's lunacy. What had set the spiders off? Most importantly, are Darcy and Jordan on today's menu? There is no room for arachnophobia in the bone-chilling suspense novella Spider Soup by Lori R. Lopez. This fascinating short story is superbly written and has a plot that is sure to be remembered long after the book has been put down. Even now the thought of all those spiders crawling over every crevice and orifice of Jordan's and Darcy's anatomies gives me the heebie-jeebies. It is truly a skin-crawling tale that sticks with you. With the human aspects along with the spider invasion, this is a fantastic way to spend a stormy evening.
