Overview

Leaping at Thorns arranges eighteen of L. Andrew Cooper's experimental short horror stories into a triptych of themes--complicity, entrapment, and conspiracy--elements that run throughout the collection. The stories span from the emotionally-centered to the unthinkably horrific; from psychosexual grossness to absurd violence; from dark extremes to brain-and-tongue twister. These standalone stories add important details to the fictional world and grand scheme of Dr. Allen Fincher, who also lurks in the background of Cooper's novels Burning the Middle Ground and Descending Lines.

Meet the Author

L. Andrew Cooper devotes extraordinary time to things provocative, scary, and strange. Works include novels Burning the Middle Ground (2012) and Descending Lines (2013); short story collections Leaping at Thorns (2014 / 2016) and Peritoneum (2016); non-fiction Gothic Realities and Dario Argento (2012); co-edited fiction anthologies Reel Dark (2015 / 2016) and Imagination Reimagined (2014); and the co-edited textbook Monsters (2012). After a decade studying literature and film at Harvard and Princeton—specializing in horror—he used his Ph.D. to teach about favorite topics from coast to coast in the United States, publish film criticism in academic and mainstream journals, and spend a year as the “film guy” on Louisville, Kentucky’s WDRB-TV. Having lived all over the U.S. (and travelled the world as much as possible, which is not enough), Cooper strives to be a global citizen, but he grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, an experience his readers encounter often. His global interests provide a never-ending supply of good horror movies as well as annoyance to his cat, Samara, who wishes Andrew and his partner James would just stay home.
