A classic rediscovered: Further Adventures is Jon Stephen Fink’s wildly original, uproarious novel of superheroes and survival, now available for the first time in a briefer, tighter, “director’s cut.” A novel that presaged works like Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Further Adventures is the unforgettable story of one man’s half-blind but wholehearted attempt to right the wrongs of a society gone astray.
