My Thoughts: I read and will be reviewing Peritoneum. I want to say that I love horror but to be honest good terrifying horror can sometimes be hard to find. But in my opinion if you want good, no dare I saw great, horror, check out Cooper. He truly delivers. He writes the shocking, mind blowing chilling horror that I love and is what I look for in a horror writer/story. Cooper's approach to writing will leave you thinking, asking questions and wanting more. My mind was reeling at just how believable his stories were. I didn't have to sleep with the lights on but boy did I have crazy dreams. And there were some stories I had to take a break after and go watch a Disney movie. HAHA. All in all Cooper is a gem of the horror genre and I will be reading all that I can find by him.
Fave Stories: "Year of the Wolf", "Lizard Chrome", "Jar of Evil", "The Broom Closet Where Everything Dies", “The Long Flight of Charlotte Radcliffe”, “The Road Thief”.
My Rating: 4.8 out of 5, .2 deduction for my sleepless nights. LOL
