George’s Run is a much more recent project. In many ways, it can be seen as something of a sequel to Alice in New York or, at least, a wonderful companion piece. With this new story, Henry is older and wiser and is now searching for the finer qualities of truth and meaning.

UPDATE: For a limited time, I am going to provide a link here to my latest graphic novel that is on its way to Small Press Expo this year (2020), assuming all goes well. As we’re right in the thick of it all, we simply don’t know at this point (March, 2020) what to expect for the rest of the year. All that said, here is a link to the new book, GEORGE’S RUN: Henry Chamberlain SPX 2020.
