Self-Publishing Author Spotlight: John F. Brinster

We take great pride in celebrating the work of our successful self-publishing authors, and we do so each week through our Self-Publishing Author Spotlight. This week we highlight self-publishing author John F. Brinster, who has published three titles with Outskirts Press.

John F. Brinster takes pride in his works as they are largely satirical, dedicated to improved behavior and more peaceful coexistence of mankind.  Learn more about Brinster, his scientific background and his published works in this week’s Self-Publishing Author Spotlight.

About the Author:

John F. Brinster is a noted contributor in science and philosophy. Brinster graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University in 1943 and was later elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Along with those accomplishments, he was awarded membership in the Sigma Xi scientific honor society. Brinster founded and managed several high-tech companies, which contributed to the expansion of the psychological mind studies of Princeton University.

Now retired, John is still passionate about science as he also focuses his energy on his books. He is an active member of the Author’s League, the New York Academy of Science, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is also an active supporter of the Princeton University for Advanced Study.

cover (11)The Afterlife of a Restless Soul: But is God Really a Woman?

A book within John F. Brinster’s Cackelry stories,  The Afterlife of a Resteless Soul Brinster explores the notion that all humans must eventually die and the fact that afterlife is of universal concern. The imaginative mind looks to its best interest; while religion can guide men’s soul,  simple belief is not for everyone. Readers are introduced to Professor Jeremiah B Cackelry III, a brilliant Einsteinian scientist, intent on saving the world. He is a confirmed atheist who married his young assistant and met death by Viagra complications.

The Afterlife of a Restless Soul follows his spirit into the afterlife where, finding no God, he reorganizes heaven. Disillusioned by ideal existence, he returns to the planet plagued by fear that a God might exist and is likely to be a woman.

AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT & SUCCESS STORY

“What I experienced with Outskirts Press in publishing my book was a lot more than what I expected. The process was smooth, my questions were answered, and I received suggestions and recommendations from my Author Representative, which were very helpful.”

Haji Razmi was born in Kandahar-Afghanistan. He went to the School of Law and Political Sciences, Kabul University. While employed at the Foreign Ministry of Afghanistan, he earned the certificate of graduation from the Institute of Diplomacy. He worked for four years as a diplomat at the United Nations in New York. Utilizing a UN fellowship, he earned the certificate of attendance of the 1990 full summer sessions of the International Law Commission in Geneva and of the International Law Academy of The Hague. From 2010 to 2014 he taught Pashto language at California State – East Bay and Stanford Universities. He is the author of Afghans Don’t Cry – a collection of short stories. He works and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“Even if the sky falls to the ground, even if the whole world begs me, and even if all the people in the city and in the country kiss my hands and feet, I swear to God, I swear to the Prophet and I swear to the Quran that this cannot and will not happen, you all know me very well, when I say no to anything, that thing cannot be done even if it costs my life. If my son is really my son, he will never be able to do this. I am known in the whole world, from here to London, from Pakistan to America, as a hero of Jihad, so tell my son not to mess up with me…” This novel takes you on a fascinating journey into the moral, cultural, social, political and historical lifestyle of a nation where both ancient and modern empires and super powers; Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, the Mogul Empire, Persian Empire, the British Empire, Sikh Empire, the Soviet Union and finally the richest country in the human history, the United States of America adventured but lingered in knowing the uniqueness and the real convolution of its way of life. This novel takes you deep down to that point of the journey where I bet you have never been.

– Haji Razmi, author of The Alliance
