Gregory K. H. Bryant – a remembrance.

June 8, 2019

Dear Readers,

Last Sunday I devoted my weekly Saved Post Sunday program* on FaceBook to celebrate Gregory K.H. Bryant’s life and art work. I encourage you to see it for yourself. Go to my FB page and then click on my timeline for June 2, 2019.

This is what I wrote in Part 1 of about 23 posts, to start.

“Part 1. This week on Saved Post Sunday, I’m going to dedicate all the posts to Gregory K. H. Bryant and his work. He passed away this week. But today it’s time for a celebration of his talent. He was gifted in many areas, writing, photography, art etc. etc. etc. etc. Please see my timeline for any posts you may have missed.
I never met him in person – but I knew of him through zines – a sort of network of writers with each publishing their own zine. I asked him to contribute to my zine, Musea in the 90s, and he sent many philosophical essays. I would print one in each issue. Later I published two small chapbooks of his work – both illustrated by him, ( “All About Nothing”, a collection of his philosophical essays, and “The Philosopher” about a wise philsopher mule! He and his wife Llori were friends on FB and I kept up with his work there, and he with mine.)

Here is what I wrote about his art work. I think he was one of our most talented contemporary artists.

“Part 3. Had there been an insightful art media, Gregory K. H. Bryant would have been one of the most celebrated artists of our time. What they failed to see, was that he did not pioneer a new ‘ism” like Matisse (fauvism) or Picasso and Braque (cubism). No his achievement was this: he painted and drew in every style from realism to abstraction, and in every style there are masterpieces!!!”

Start with this abstract and see what. A great colorist he was. Very powerful piece….”

Then I showcased photos of many of his art works, information on his ongoing sci-fi adventure story about Carter Ward, his 40 years working at the National Air and Space Museum, a few personal photos, etc.

Condolences to his wife and children. He will be missed by me and many many others.

Tom Hendricks,

Review: Carter Ward, Space Rat

January 7, 2019

Carter Ward, Space Rat,
by Gregory K. HG. Bryant
Review 1/6/19

For many years Gregory K. H. Bryant contributed essays to my zine Musea. Later I found out what an accomplished artist and photographer he was. Now add author to that list with the release of his big trade paperback, “Carter Ward, Space Rat”

The 500 pages here introduce us to the adventures of Carter Ward; but it’s far from his last adventure as his story continues online.

Carter Ward is a crusty loner that survives in the outback of space between Mars and the Asteroid Belt, where the laws there are seldom followed!

His ship, 08-111 is a one of a kind marvel with all the necessary, rigged up, extras like his visual companion and a favorite character of mine, Dimara, who helps him out of scrapes more than once!

Besides Dimara, others intrude on his life more than he wants! There’s lots of characters here from the evil Mokem Bet and his Scroungers, to little Emily that has a crush on Carter.

All this adds up to lots of close calls – like the time he died – and even some tender moments when he lets down his guard – slightly!

Lots of space opera adventures here, that are not only fine writing, but fun reading!
I recommend this.

Carter Ward Space-Rat

June 21, 2018

Dear Reader,

Musea’s long time columnist Gregory K. H. Bryant has a new novel out. Carter Ward Space-Rat is a sci-fi adventure about the ‘rogue of the spaceways.”

This photo shows my copy!

Gregory, used to write these wonderful essays for my zine. Later I found out that he was also an artist, and as I saw his work posted, I found him my favorite contemporary artist, and one of the greatest I’ve known.

Search him out for his art work that covers just about every genre, his photos, his books now available, or his essays.

Congratulations on the new book!
