WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING TO ME?
In a London flat a young man has gone to ground. Hiding out until the storm of public interest in a bizarre sex-and-kidnap court case blows over.
But in the night, he is visited by something at once irresistible and terrifying.
In the night comes a creature in the form of the most desirable women to possess him until the very last pang of lust is slaked. Panic-stricken friends, brilliant psychiatrists, and one dead-end psychic researcher hold the ring as modern medicine confronts the essence of evil.
IN THE NIGHT, HE IS POWERLESS AGAINST THE SUCCUBUS
A must read if there ever was one!! Am in touch with the artist, and he's going to give me an interview for the website! Be good to nail down what else he has done for NEL and any others. Happy days!
Friend Alwyn unleashes himself on Succubus at Trash Fiction and, if his review is anything to go by and this is the same Ken Johnson who gave us Zoltan, Hound Of Dracula then you're in for a treat. Alwyn describes the hardback cover as "extraordinarily unattractive". He's not wrong.
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
