Overview

Brave Men Run is an alternate history fan favorite, now revised and expanded -- including a sneak peek at Pilgrimage, the second volume of the Charters Duology and the Sovereign Era storyworld!

ABOUT THE BOOK

April 18, 1985 - A startling revelation shocks a world already wound tight by the desperate tensions of the Cold War: super-humans exist... and they demand autonomy.

Until that day, high school sophomore Nate Charters thought he was just an outsider and self-proclaimed freak. His unusual appearance, hair-trigger reflexes, and overactive metabolism could have made him something special, but his differences and low self-esteem marked him as a target for the jocks and popular kids long ago.

Now, just as his unique nature catches the eye of a self-assured older girl and the sinister attention of the enigmatic Dr. Brenhurst, Nate must solve the mystery of his origins and find his place in the world. Is he part of a remarkable, powerful new minority... or just a misfit among misfits?

He'd better find his answers quickly. A shadowy organization knows more about him than he could ever imagine. And they're closing in...

ABOUT THE EXPANDED EDITION

The revised, expanded edition of Brave Men Run -- A Novel of the Sovereign Era incorporates the short story "Brenhurst's Tale -- Another View of Brave Men Run." Now you can see beyond Nate Charter's point of view and get the entire story in one place!

Additionally, every line of the text has been examined, refined, revised, and, where necessary, corrected so that it fits perfectly in the canon with the stories and events presented in The Sovereign Era: Year One and Pilgrimage. This revised, expanded edition is the definitive one.

About 65,000 words.

    Highly Recommended

    This isn't what i expected at all. Instead of an ovearching, end of the world super human epic, I got a very personal, endearing story of a teenage outsider coming to grips with his place in the world. Maybe it was because I have so many fond memories of the 80's but Selznick painted a very engaging portrait of the era and the kids who grew up in it. His main character, Nate Charters, has super human powers and they mark him as different in a world where super humans have just been publicly outed. How he deals with these powers, how he deals with school, family, friends, is exciting, heartwarming and strikes a familiar chord in anyone who felt a little out of place in high school. I really hope Matthew Selznick is planning a sequel because I really want to follow Nate Charters in the Sovereign era.

    I feel like this book just touched on the Sovereign world. I will definitely be looking for more.
