American Succubus

by
3.67  ·  Rating details ·  6 Ratings  ·  3 Reviews
Though on the face of it a horror story, American Succubus is actually a commentary on James Thurber's Battle of the Sexes - serious and poignant with a touch of British tongue-in-cheek and an increasingly healthy pinch of American satire. Apart from that, just good, clean fun.
Paperback, First, 340 pages

G.F. Skipworth
Jun 05, 2012 rated it really liked it  ·  (Review from the author)
G.F. Skipworth's "American Succubus" should be a horror story if the title has anything to do with it. However, horror is an almost non-existent fraction of the equation in this elusive new novel, and even when it occurs, it isn't really the point. Frankly, we don't know what to call it. It's suspenseful, humorous and witty, intellectually interesting and, at times, far-fetched in the best sense.

This mixture of fantasy and modern reality depicts a heroic clan of women protecting Earth's men from

Thanks to the author for autographing and personalizing my copy.
Blurb:
A coven of heroic women struggles to protect the men of Earth from a sinister female society that views them as food - Now, listen up, men! It doesn't matter if you're a fighter or a fighter pilot, a cellist or a ballet dancer. If you've been stalked by one, lived with one, married one or heaven forbid picked a fight with one - well, you're not going to need us to tel

I received this book as a 'first-reads' from Goodreads. First off, I want to thank the author for the book, they were kind enough sign it and that is awesome. Pffft, now the hard part, the part that never fails to make me feel like dog doo. This book wasn't for me. I have no interest what-so-ever in boxing or cellists, it was the succubi and witches that attracted me to the book, and I felt like this book had too little of that story line. HOWEVER, I do think there is an audience for this book, ...more

Toured much of the world as a concert pianist, symphonic and operatic conductor, vocalist and composer. Went to school at Whitman, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, UCLA.

Beginning to write again for the first time since childhood, I realized that this was a long-held desire that had been pushed aside by my musical pursuits long ago.

I am currently taking a short breather from concert touring, sitting on the
