Doucette’s Adam is a sixty thousand year-old man who does not age or get sick. As a character, this means he could conceivably pop up anywhere in human history, the only limit being where the author chooses to place him. In Immortal and the Madman he is cast in the English countryside where he has retired to deal with a brief bout of what I’ll call “immortal psychosis”—a unique form of delusional disorder caused by the accumulated weight of several millennia’s worth of memories. Where else better than the countryside to deal with such malaise, except events begin to unfold that may make it less of a safe haven than originally assumed.
What makes Doucette’s series so eminently readable is his ability to give humanity to a psychology that is, by virtue of immortality and tremendous life span, incomprehensible to a normal human. As with the other works in the series, Adam is just a man, while at the same time clearly not. In Immortal and the Madman he probes the psychology of that disparity in a little more depth, and still provides the action and witticisms we’ve come to love.
I believe the mark of a good writer in this genre is the ability to take supernatural and fantastic elements and weave them in such a way that they are believable and don’t detract from the essential narrative—such as with a sci-fi movie and that is over-reliant on special effects to cover up a thin plot. Doucette always provides relatable characters and depth of story. No less with this novella.
Get it. Read it. Get the others too. You won’t be disappointed.
Hard to shove all of that in a 'stand a lone'.
The price is tolerable and the content is great. Keep writing Gene!
