Plot Summary

The Succubus is set in an urban environment where fear lurks in the shadows with some unidentified evil. The human individual must confront a threat that comes not only form nature or civilization but also from himself, for he projects himself onto his surroundings.

Like Zabot's other protagonists, Valent Kosmina, the protagonist of The Succubus, is dominated by the desire for love. The history of his involvement with women, which is present in the form of fleeting images in his consciousness, comprises a string of disappointments. His various embodiments cause Valet to be lost in multiplicity. The reason behind this multiplicity is a woman who, like the demonic succubus of legend, preys on men's minds with her beautiful appearance.
