Published just last year, The Russian Madhouse is the second sci-fi novel from Rick Badman. The book reunites us with automotive engineer Dick Thurman, whom we first met in the first book The Madhouse Projects. In this story, Dick Thurman is now a director of an underground research and development installation somewhere in Siberia. The story is set in early 2040. During this time, societies are enjoying advanced technologies.

Both Dick and his wife Kate are working in the Facility (the Siberian installation). One day, Kate develops a device called a brain companion. It can aid children’s learning progress. Dick, on the other hand, continues his fascination with flying cars and has produced a flying limousine for the Russian President. Upon his visit to the Facility, the Russian President is shown advanced weapons, enhance human experiments and other science projects. Many of these technologies are for military and warfare. Some of the technologies and inventions are to be taken to Mars. However, a Starship intercepts their travel and what follows next is another adventure with extraterrestrial life, rival governments, and spy agents.

“I have heart surgery occur when a surgeon implants a synthetic heart. In Paris, a woman from the Madhouse brings coma patients back to consciousness. A new worker at the Madhouse takes a flying car out for a spin, plays tag with a UFO, and is shot down by an Air Force fighter plane.” (excerpt from the book)

Overall, Rick Badman’s The Russian Madhouse is a hilarious, out-of-this-world adventure, with fresh new characters and an insanely wonderful plot.
