The Succubus is a story set in Southern Ontario that follows a group of friends through small-town malaise and beyond, where they discover the ties that bind can easily unravel.
Here’s how it begins!
“Annika absentmindedly inspects the tear in the center of the cushion. She trails her fingernails down it, feeling, abstractly, as though the vinyl is skin, and the sponge inside guts, when she notices a crumpled piece of paper wedged down the side of the booth. She pries it out. It resembles a white carnation before she smoothes the page against the tabletop.”
