At long last

The latest episode ofThe Immortal Chronicles is here at last, after delays caused by the unexpected death of my computer and the discovery that the story was going to end up being longer than anticipated.GeneDoucette_ImmortalandtheMadman1400

Immortal and the Madmanis long enough to fall under the heading ofnovella. (Actually, based on the word counts I’ve been looking at, so were the first two stories.) It comes in at...

" When I first read The Immortal, I (mistakenly) believed it's just one book. I was delighted to find out Gene is writing a lot of books about Adam!

Loved this one - while it is short (like 1 chapter short) it's a nice window into Adams mind. Enjoy " Read more of this review »
Hard-Boiled Immortal by Gene Doucette
" This story was so much freakin' fun!

“Morning conversations should be between very close friends or lovers, and otherwise avoided entirely.”
Gene Doucette, Hellenic Immortal

“I was suicidal for two solid centuries once. That was during the early part of what they now call the Dark Ages, in medieval Europe. Suicidal tendencies were de rigueur at the time, and I’m nothing if not trendy.”
Gene Doucette, Immortal

“Karyos's people adopted an ingenious, if somewhat perplexing attitude that life was a circle. Not like Disney's circle of life thing, which was really just a nice way to say, "death is normal, children, so suck it up.”
Gene Doucette, Hellenic Immortal
