Incubus: The One About the Rape Demon

Bad Books for Bad People, Episode 18: Incubus

Ray Russell's Incubus has a place of pride even among the outrageous titles of the horror paperback boom of the 70s and 80s. Telling the story of a series of horrific rape-murders in a strangely New England-ish seaside town in California, Incubus combines authorial style with an unflinchingly graphic storyline that combine to create a book unlike anything else Jack and Kate have encountered. It's a rare podcast that carries a content warning AND a spoiler alert at the top of the show, but this is just such an episode.

What dark desires lurk inside the hearts of men? How is Dracula like the incubus? Can you really get a degree in "Exotic Cultures?" What even are women? Find out all this and more in this month's episode of Bad Books for Bad People.

Enjoy our new theme music by the wonderful Andrea Cowan!
