An old man places an impossible phone call to the past. A mysterious phenomenon causes time to slow to a crawl, turning a man’s commute to work into a nightmare. A man’s clever children bring him back from the dead, but at a terrible cost.
These stories and more can be found in “The Phone and Other Short Stories,” just one of a multitude of creative projects he’s launched throughout his career. Bryant’s journey has been as unusual and varied as his stories. He worked as a vocational counselor, surveyor, hotel piano player and as a web designer in the early days of the Internet and worked with Silicon Valley startups. As a musician, he’s released 19 albums and had a few minor jazz hits in Europe.
These days, Bryant splits his time between short-story writing and helping small businesses weave their way through the digital revolution. He also writes content for a number of blogs and manages completeworldnews.com, a news-aggregating site.
