Damon is a novel, written by Charles Terry Cline, Jr.,[1] about a four year old boy named Damon who begins to rapidly develop sexually into the equivalent of a full grown man. While still in the body of a four year old boy, excepting his genitalia, he quickly becomes a predator to every female that comes within his grasp: his playmates, his nurse, and even his own mother. At the same time he exhibits immensely bizarre psychological abilities including some of the seemingly super-natural variety, such as telepathy and remote viewing. In one instance, he uses his remote viewing ability to watch a rescue group discover the body of a neighboring young girl he violently raped and left to die. The question for the protagonist doctor working closely on the case becomes, is Damon possessed by the mind of a sexual psychopath? Or is his body simply the victim of a logical but strange, purely physical malady?
