Lawrence L. Lapin
Suppose a scientist could for a time stop the aging process in his body. He does not know how long he will live, but he has reached the point where his chronological age is over ten times that suggested by a youthful appearance. You might say the man is virtually immortal.
Meet Adam Boatwright, protagonist superhero of my stories in the Adam’s Chronicles series. In my book, Adam’s Tiger, Adam continues leading “from behind,” nudging along a massive life-restoration project. For five centuries he has inspired others to nurture the Planet on its recovery from astronomical disaster, a meteor impact more severe than the dinosaur killer.
Adam cannot share the truth about his age, lest others attempt to pursue immortality. Adam uses the Restoration of Life Foundation to accomplish his mission while remaining anonymous. Its resources fund Adam’s projects and give the aged geneticist freedom to move restorations along.
Though an honorary Foundation director, Adam remains aloof from day-to-day management of the organization, which he started during early restorations. Adam is content to let others handle mundane management, and the Foundation is immensely rich. Its massive fortune is quietly invested in infrastructure for improving people’s lives.
The aged scientist has sway with the directors, and he ordinarily gets whatever he wants. Nobody in the Foundation knows Adam’s true age—not even its chairman. In my story the head director is a self-made millionaire who sails his yacht through southern seas, just to see Adam. My superhero is the true restoration leader and will pull strings to obtain financing for a strange new project.
In Book IV of Adam’s Chronicles Planet Earth is still recovering from a disastrous meteor impact. The centuries-long effort to restore animals and plants—and mankind itself—has been expanded to include bringing back certain mammals that went extinct much earlier.
Adam Boatwright worries about the future. The long-lived geneticist wants a world with a small human footprint. But he also wants to compensate for the earlier ruin people brought. His ambitious goal is improving the planet’s platform for future evolution. In doing so he has reversed extinctions, starting with woolly mammoths and saber-toothed cats. In the works are bringing back long-dead keystone Australian predators: Tasmanian tiger-wolves and marsupial lions.
