Nathan’s Run was my first published novel. It did very well in the marketplace in no small measure because of some great editing. The biggest change from my original version of the story to the story you read now is the ending. My original version was way too schmaltzy, but it did tie up some of the loose ends that were intentionally left untied in the final book. At the time, we went ’round and ’round on where the story should end. While I think I ultimately made the correct choice, I hear a lot from fans who want just a little more.
So here for the first time, on the occasion of the re-release of Nathan’s Run, is the ending as I originally wrote it. Click here to read it.
