The Incubus Journal: Chapter 4 by The Mad Hatter

Concluding a review of a rather short series about a man being transformed into an incubus and what happens to him. You can find my review of the first two works in the series here on the Tale, if you’d like to know my thoughts about the start of the series. Editing matters. It isn’t …

A Review of Devilish Desires by Monica-Jay Allen

Devilish Desires by Monica-Jay Allen

Succubi can be used, and are quite often used, as the means to drive a story in a particular direction.

A Review of Urge of the Demoness by Alana Sanford

Urge of the Demoness by Alana Sanford

Succubi can be many things. They can be evil, indifferent, or mischievous among other things. To have them simply “do” without having a reason can be a problem.

A Review of The Devil in the Detail by Jewel Jones

The Devil in the Detail by Jewel Jones

There are some stories that offer a Succubus, or Succubus-ish, character that seems to be interesting. Perhaps that is in their attitude, their appearance, something that seems to suggest they are meaningful to the work in question. Sometimes what is offered doesn’t quite work out for several reasons. Much of the time that comes to …
