Crimson Succubus - The Demon Chronicles is a collection of dark, erotic fiction, central to which is Crimson Succubus, one of the lesser-known angels to fall with Lucifer at the climax of the battle between heaven and hell.
Written in an authentic style suitable to such works, the collection is in three parts: the first consists of vignettes exactly 100 words in length; the second collects for the first time the longer stories written under the Succubus banner; and in the third the author, Carmine, introduces Mytoessa, created solely while working on this collection.
Like all myths, these stories speak to our deepest fears, hopes, and fantasies, and will tickle your nightmares and daydreams long after you put the book down.
Carmine has been writing erotica for several years. He has published two ongoing series, “Tales of the Crimson Succubus” and “Mr. Leatherman,” and most of his erotica taps into the genres of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. His first book, the erotic/horror anthology Midnight Delights, has been published by Renaissance E Books under the Sizzler Imprint. His short works can be found in Smut, our own XtreXmeX, Ruthie’s Club, Cthulhu Sex, Scared Naked, Blue Food, Bedroom Chronicles, Mind Caviar, Ophelia’s Muse, Sauce*Box, Voracity Beat, A Dark Whisper, BDSM Café, Lair of the Shebitch, Blood Moon Zine, Shadow of the Marquis, and Abby’s Realm.
He has also released “Crimson Succubus: The Demon Chronicles” in ebook formats and which is due to be released in very early 2008 in print. Later in this feature, we have an extraordinary actual interview with Crimson Succubus, but first we asked Carmine about her and her stories;
“Crimson Succubus came about when I discovered a little online publication known as Amoret. I had always wanted to try my hand at writing erotica, so I began to read the short stories in the magazine. Amoret was interesting because it published a unique type of fiction labeled “flash.” As I would subsequently discover, flash fiction (also known as short-shorts, micro-fiction, or fast fiction) had become a popular form of literary fiction. A flash-fiction story is one that is less than 100 words. The story must have a beginning, a middle, and an end. These stories are challenging to write, but they also are very rewarding.
My interest in dark fantasy and horror led to the creation of Crimson Succubus, who is one of the lesser-known angels to fall with Lucifer at the climax of the battle between heaven and hell. Her essence was to imbue wanton desire without measure. It was she who first beguiled monks within darkened abbeys, so that these poor self-professed celibates attached crucifixes to their members in a feeble attempt to ward off her nocturnal defilement. There is a strong sense of bondage and S&M in many of the tales, and most of them have elements of darkness and the supernatural.
So, I sent off my first short piece to Amoret and it was promptly rejected. Not dissuaded in the least, I sent another, and a few weeks later I received an acceptance. I worked with the ladies at Amoret for two years (at which time the magazine folded), and slowly Crimson Succubus began to appear in other venues.
Editors and readers often ask me how I manage to write from a female’s perspective. What I have done is patterned Crimson Succubus after my beloved wife, who in many ways is not like the she-devil with respect to motivation and inclination. However, the succubus’ inner strength, passion, and compassion—and all the elements that make up her femininity—are taken from my wife.
Although there are longer short stories featuring the Crimson Succubus, most remain in the realm of flash fiction. My next step is to take these tales and assemble a pillow book that chronicles all my work related to this she-devil. The difficult part will be to find a publisher, but I have taken this step before, and it has proved successful.
