"if you’ve been around for long enough, you’re bound to experience a few unpleasant things: fires, earthquakes, avalanches, volcanoes, sometimes all on the same afternoon. Boats, I can tell you from first-hand experience, sink. A lot. Sometimes it’s because whoever made the boat for you made a crappy boat. Maybe you made a crappy boat. There is also the occasional psychotically malevolent storm that doesn’t care how well designed your boat is. When you encounter something like that, and the thing you were relying upon to keep you alive ends up sinking, you really want to know you’re not too far from the safety of solid ground.

Oh, and here’s another thing to worry about when you’re in a boat: sea serpents."

--Adam the immortal

Adam's adventures on the high seas have taken him from the Mediterranean to the Barbary Coast, and if there's one thing he learned, it's that maybe the sea is trying to tell him to stay on dry land.

In Immortal At Sea, the first adventure in The Immortal Chronicles Adam talks about what it took to make it back to shore safely, and why it's a bad idea to sail on a gilded ship.

 New, from the bestselling author of The Spaceship Next Door!

“I thought I’d miss the world.” --Adam the immortal


Adam is on vacation in an island paradise, with nothing to do and plenty of time to do nothing.

It’s exactly what he needed: beautiful weather, beautiful girlfriend, plenty of books to read, and alcohol to drink. Most importantly, either nobody on the island knows who he is, or, nobody cares.

“This probably sounds boring, and maybe it is. It’s possible I have no compass to help determine boring, or maybe I have a different threshold than most people. From my perspective, though, the vast majority of human history has been boring, by which I mean nothing happened, and sure, that can be dull. On the other hand, nothing happening includes nobody trying to kill anybody, and specifically, nobody trying to kill me. That’s the kind of boring a guy can get behind.” --Adam the immortal

Nothing last forever, though, and that includes the opportunity to do nothing. One day, unwelcome visitors arrive in secret, with impossible knowledge of impossible events, and then the impossible things arrive: a new species.

It’s all impossible, especially to the immortal man who thought he’d seen all there was to see in the world. Now, Adam is going to have to figure out what’s happening and make things right before he and everyone he loves ends up dead in the hot sun of this island paradise.

Immortal and the Island of Impossible Things is the fourth book in Gene Doucette’s acclaimed Immortal novel series, and the start of a new adventure for Adam the immortal man! Catch up on all that’s come before, with Immortal, Hellenic Immortal, Immortal at the Edge of the World, and the novellas in The Immortal Chronicles and Immortal Stories: Eve.

Other books by Gene Doucette include the sci-fi thriller Fixer, and the bestseller The Spaceship Next Door.
