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.

To Whom It May Concern—I was The Green Ray. Now it can be told—the story which many tried to silence, many refused to believe, and many did not want to hear.
In the depths of the Great Depression, the voice of a radio superhero known as The Green Ray entertained America. Forty years later, the man behind the character—two-bit voice actor Ray Green, known to his family as Reuven Agranovsky—is caught in an all-night blackout in the desert town of Mason, New Mexico, where a chain of events is set in motion that forces The Green Ray out of retirement. But at seventy-three, Ray faces a different—and far more terrifying—world.
A wildly inventive, raucously funny novel of heroism, neurosis, and transcendence, Further Adventures was ahead of its time when it was first published fifteen years ago. Like Ray Green himself, it now reemerges in a newly revised "author's cut" for a new generation of readers.About the Author:
