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...
