Overview

An important work of post-modern feminist horror, American Monsters is a poignant, angry volume about predation, the corruption of the rave scene, and empowerment through trauma-related super-abilities. The first section of American Monsters is The Succubi Sideshow, a series of compelling vignettes introducing a wide range of characters. You'll find no happy, well-balanced individuals in this disturbing gallery. In the second section, The Phantastic Carnival, the Monsters are brought together through the murderous designs of a soul-hungry goddess. What could be a better lure for a big haul of youthful life-force than a spectacular Halloween party in a peculiar hill-top mansion? Non-Fiction, the third and final section of American Monsters, is a collection of moving and insightful essays. Packed with horror homages, American Monsters is a book for adventurous readers - ones who are not scared of non-traditional narratives, of evil smog-goddesses, or of women turning the tables.
