WHAT READERS SAY
“Some writers are great stylists and will write beautiful stories that say nothing new or important. Other writers are great storytellers whose tales are exciting but mundane. Only rarely do we see a writer who creates compelling, important stories with captivating prose. B.T. Lowry is one of those rare authors whose work is not only compelling and moving, but also important to read.”
David Farland, New York Times Bestseller, Lead Judge for one of the world's largest writing contests.
“It started with Fire from the Overworld, and now I am hooked. I look forward to each new piece from B.T. Lowry. His engaging fantasies take us enough out of our own reality to explore a thought provoking mix of themes such as seeking truth and the divine, finding what is essential as cultures clash and environments collapse, and individuals’ need to define their own path in a greater society.”
Vice President of Gaudiya Vedanta Publications
ABOUT B.T. LOWRY
Hi. I’m B.T. Lowry, aka Venu Gopal das.
I grew up in Canada, where the Rocky Mountains meet the Great Plains. I love badland landscapes with knobbly stone hoodoos and deep ravines. I love forests with pine boughs mounded with snow and deep silence. I love the Himalayas, whose peaks defy gravity as they fall upward into the sky.
When I was about twenty, I met my spiritual master, Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja. I’ve spent the last fifteen years or so studying bhakti-yoga under his guidance, mostly while living in India.
I’ve loved creating and hearing stories all my life. Now I’m working to infuse my work with spiritual experience. I pray you find these stories deep, exciting, challenging and hopeful.
