Some Thing by Lori R. Lopez is an entertaining horror short story that keeps you hooked till the end. The author has used the major environmental issue of water contamination at the US-Mexican border as the main theme and cleverly sculpted it into an intriguing horror plot. A man traveling across the US-Mexican border drinks contaminated water, a mistake he later regrets. All hell breaks loose when his health deteriorates. Meanwhile, in the nearest border town, a single lady in her forties suspects there is an intruder in the neighborhood. Her seventy-four-year-old neighbor Bash lives alone in a cottage, mourning his dead wife Lucy after whom he named his bazooka. The seemingly normal lives of these three characters will never be the same once they act on their instincts.

Some Thing is fast-paced, thrilling, and easy to read. The reader can readily visualize the story and feel the characters' emotions. After reading this tale, you will think twice about consuming water from unfamiliar sources while traveling. The story also delves into the depths of moral responsibility toward one's duties and the consequences of failing to be honest while performing them. You can sense the regret and loneliness that the characters go through, while a dangerous intruder is lurking in the yard. There is a constant feeling of dread throughout which makes it quite thrilling and enjoyable. I am looking forward to reading more of Lori R. Lopez's work. I would definitely recommend this book to horror readers.
