Highlander Reading Material


The Captive Soul by Josepha Sherman (September 1998).
This book is all about Methos' adventures in Ancient Egypt. Check out Rain's Page about the Captive Soul.


An Evening at Joe's an Anthology of Short Stories edited by Gillian Horvath (September 2000)
I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! So many Methos stories, so little time. Seems like everyone who worked in front of and behind the cameras of Highlander appreciates the need for the ROG's presence. Check out Rain's Page about An Evening At Joe's. And read more at Amazon.com.


White Silence by Ginjer Buchanan (February 1, 1999).
Methos does not make an appearance, but it's a REALLY GOOD BOOK. Fitz is hilarious as usual and if you've ever wondered about the Alaskan Goldrush, tag along with three immortals trying their luck. Actually, in the afterword, the author DOES mention the Dr. Adams character. Read more at Amazon.com.


Shadow of Obsession by Rebecca Neason (June 1998).
No Methos, but he is mentioned in passing. At the bottom of page 192: "It was true--Duncan MacLeod disliked fighting women. He knew that some of the Immortals he called friend thought this attitude a weakness--Methos certainly did. But MacLeod believed women were to be cherished."Great book about Darius before the Light Quickening which turned him from a great barbarian general to an enlightened priest.

Zealot by Donna Lettow (November 1997).
Methos has a few hilarious scenes in this one. I'd say it's worth checking out in the store, if not buying. Methos.org has an excerpt. Read more at Amazon.com.


The Element of Fire by Jason Henderson (July 1997).
No Methos, but beautiful magical tale of a very strange, very old Immortal, who plays the role of a god more often than he plays The Game. Connor MacLeod is featured semi-prominantly, though of course the book focuses on Duncan. What is really peculiar, is something Connor says to Duncan on page 149. "I knew it was a mistake to stand there and watch you go into hiding for ten years the way you did. 'Oh, I'm so depressed, because my mortal family has been killed; Oh, I'm so tired of fighting; Oh, I think I'll retreat to holy ground and meditate.' Meditate on this, Duncan. While you were under, lots of others were still playing." Connor is referring to when Little Deer and her people had been slaughtered and Duncan built his cabin in the Northwest. But it also sounds ALOT like what Connor does in the movie, Endgame. Not so clever or original those writers, are they? Read more at Amazon.com.


Scotland The Brave by Jennifer Roberson (September 1996).
Only two phone conversations to Methos in this book. First Duncan calls his machine in Paris. Then Methos calls Richie to return the call. Methos.org has the excerpts. Methos is mentioned several other times too (concerning chivalry, or rather, his LACK OF chivalry). Read more at Amazon.com.
