"The greatest story of all time taps at our window this very moment. It begs us to participate."

Background Information

For half a century Zacharias O’Bryan has captured listeners’ imagination with his stage plays, his fireside tales and his songs of adventure. The grass-grown, tumbled-stone castles of Ireland, the dark-chambered Toltec tombs of southern Mexico, the Anasazi cliff dwellings of the American Southwest—these are lands that speak to O’Bryan. And now, rafting into a parallel universe via the roadless river canyons of Southern Oregon, you meet the characters who live beyond the fireball lightning--the blue disembodied souls who contemplate our world from the Chamber of Minds in the depths of the lava tubes.
As a lifelong admirer of JRR Tolkien, Mark Twain and Hermann Hesse, Mr. O'Bryan believes that our stories are our culture--that the solutions to today's problems and the paths to fulfillment lie in the spiritual nuances of the mind rather than political posturing. Although Mr. O'Bryan is a lover of cinema, his deepest devotion is to the free imagination allowed by music and books.
With over twenty-five years experience rafting the wilderness rivers of the West, no author is more qualified than O'Bryan to place an epic fantasy among the forest creatures and white water rapids of North America's lonely canyons. He welcomes you on this journey.
Birth Place
Fort Collins, CO USA

A magna cum laude graduate of the writing program at the University of California, Mr. O'Bryan has seen his plays performed, has listened to his musical compositions performed in weddings and on the radio, and has been delighted with the three-continent reception of his new eBook "Spirit Thorn, a Tale of Parallel Worlds."

Additional Information

Mr. O'Bryan has recently completed his employment as a screenwriter for a sci-fi/fantasy film set in rural Northern California. As soon as the producer and director begin making press releases, Mr. O'Bryan will update this announcement.

Favorite Links

Spirit Thorn Website
The official Spirit Thorn website offers links that illustrate the scientific concepts introduced in the book. Though first and foremost a fantasy tale, Spirit Thorn exemplifies science-IN-fiction, a phrase popularized by Dr. Carl Djerassi of Stanford University, who believes that much of our knowledge and curiosity is seeded within the stories that entertain us. The site also includes the author's blog, comments from our reader community and a selection of current reviews of the book.

Don't be alarmed at the incongruity of name. Zacharias O'Bryan is known as "Bryan Frink" in the parallel world of non-books, family and friends.

Free! Seven Poems and Songs From Spirit Thorn
Acting upon a reader's request, Mr. O'Bryan has published the stand-alone poems and songs of "Spirit Thorn" into a separate eBook. Downloads can be purchased at Amazon or Barnes and Noble for approximately one dollar; likewise the book may be read for free at Smashwords. Try it, you'll like it!

Journal Article: Science in Fiction
Free for reprint, this article by Zacharias O'Bryan explains the concept of "Science IN Fiction." (The article may be reprinted and distributed for no charge to the reader, but only with links back to the original. Thank you for honoring the author's work.)
