In May 2017, my cousin—a now-retired former chief editor for Reader’s Digest—coached me toward a wonderful self-publishing service offered by Amazon.com called CreateSpace. By the end of the year all three novels of the Osiris Plan trilogy were up and available on Amazon.
The story that I chose to tell is based on several premises that are accepted fact in my personal reality, such as: the existence of a Spiritual world and; Creation as a realization or acting out of the Universal Consciousness. We are all a part of that Universal consciousness and, therefore, an active and viable part and contributor to Creation (whether we “know it” or not). We are inspired or, more correctly, inspirited by individuated perspectives of consciousness that some choose to call “souls” or “spiritual beings” or “monads” or “light beings” or whatever. What people ”forget” is that these spiritual beings are also part of an illusory or made-up version of reality (“Creation”) analogous to the writers, directors, funders, and builders of a play, while the players or actors are, in fact, the “spirit”-inspired, or ensouled, human beings playing out the stories on the four-dimensional surface of the “stage” we call planet Earth.
Another underlying premise in my story—in my personal reality—is that there are infinite versions/variations of what we like to call “reality” playing out in our universe and other universes and (for us) unimaginable other dimensionalities all at the same time. The Formless God’s Imagination being projected out into “Form.” It’s … Continue reading
My name is Drew Fisher. I came to planet Earth, this time, in 1958, the last year of the “post war baby boom.” This was the year of Barbie, the hula hoop, the first US satellite launches and the formation of NASA, the post-Korean War recession, the Lituya Bay (SE Alaska) mega-tsunami, the first nuclear powered naval vessel, the USS Nautilus, Elvis in the US Army, an Academy Award to the film, The Bridge on the River Kwai, publication of Vladimir Nabokov’s controversial novel, Lolita, “Volare” and Ricky Nelson topping the music scene, and the formation of the John Birch Society. I was born in the summer that brought us Prince, Rick Santorum, Annette Bening, Kevin Bacon, Kate Bush, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Tim Burton, Jeff Foxworthy, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
I was born into a bloodline of relatively affluent families in the affluent suburb of Grosse Pointe, Michigan. My parents’ families had both had significant and prominent roles in both the proliferation of the US and world automobile industries as well as in the success of the US military in World War II. As a young boy I became aware of the discrepancies between the so-called “haves” and “have nots” as the 1967 race riots in Detroit occurred only a couple of miles from my home. This rather rude awakening from my heretofore “blissful” childhood of ignorance and innocence led me to begin questioning my “right” to all of the privileges and rights that my circumstances of birth afforded me. Thus began a lifelong pursuit of “just desserts”—i.e. receiving what was due to me, what I had earned, not … Continue reading
VF author Drew Fisher has just published his novel titled Brig-Wallis Preparatory School for Boys, the first of the Osiris Plan trilogy of visionary fiction. Congratulations, Drew!
About the book (from Amazon):
Eighteen boys from all corners of the world have been recruited to the freshman class of a small, mysterious, Swiss boarding school. They know little to nothing about why they were recruited, what the school sees in them, or what the school intends to make of them, and yet, here they are. Faced by an unusual curriculum that provokes and ‘tests’ them at every turn, the boys are being forced to come face to face with their individual strengths and weaknesses while, at the same time, they are continuously being provoked into considering expanded perspectives of both their world views and their potentialities as human beings. The characters and dystopian setting of Brig-Wallis Preparatory School for Boys welcomes the reader into the visionary fantasy world of the Osiris Plan trilogy, while the trilogy as a whole is intended to offer both an apology for the possibility of near-term human extinction while also serving to represent of Drew Fisher’s spiritual-based theory as to why this current version of human beings populating our small blue planet may be behaving with such apathy, cruelty, and depravity.
Brig-Wallis Preparatory School for Boys is available in both paperback and Kindle forms. Get your copy today!
