The alternative 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!


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 Revised, 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.
