About this title


The epic saga of Kort Villikon, a military commander framed and banished to the prison world of Itasca, continues in the exciting second installment; The Villikon Chronicles: Ascension of the Expatriates Part 2...Pilgrimage of Hope.

Unaware of Vice General Rybolt’s political plans for his exoneration, Kort Villikon roams the treacherous deserts of Itasca with Exuma, a dinosauric Dirt Whale, avoiding warmongering clans, pirates, and a vampirical race known as the Porphyrian Hive. Existing in a villainous society with no hope for escape, Villikon searches for a place to call home. His pending rescue unbeknownst, Villikon discovers a hidden oasis through the cleft of a dormant volcano in the desert wastelands. He encounters a peaceful society of second-generation villagers who believe he is the prophesized leader of their escape. Villikon marries an Itascan native and learns of a legendary starship crashed in the northern hemisphere. Villikon realizes Mystere, an old acquaintance, was marooned on Itasca aboard the same legendary ship, and sets out on a quest with his wife Zandora, their child, and the villagers to seek her out, and find the lost craft. The crusade favors some, but disillusions many, as faiths are tested under extreme conditions.

Elsewhere on the planet, Imperium Forces arrive from the home world to begin searching for Villikon. But a corrupt intelligence officer intends to protect the horrible secret he abandoned and hid from the military for over a half-century - a genetic weapon, which spawned a vampirical race of foes, dwelling under the dreadful surface of the planet.

About the Author:

Bryan Kinnaird started as a staff writer in the late 80's, writing for morning radio. He later wrote marketing scripts for sales companies before professionally writing and producing corporate training programs for his own video production company.

In 1997, Bryan began writing motion picture screenplays and created the concept that would become the basis for "The Villikon Chronicles", a futuristic story told from a soldier's point of view that imaginatively portrays the trials and tribulations of mankind. This intriguing tale, set against the backdrop of a militarized universe plagued with maniacal villains, vampirical creatures, religious fanaticism, and moral hypocrisy, has received numerous accolades, and appeals to several genres. It is a modernized myth with unique story beats, plot twists, symbols, and themes that transcend cultural and national boundaries.

In November 1999, Bryan Kinnaird joined artist Roy Young to form Young-Kinnaird Productions. Roy Young originally collaborated with Bryan Kinnaird on the documentary film, Behind the Scenes of Destructive Metal and Comic Book Mayhem. The film delved into the underground influence of metal music on new age comic books.

Bryan Kinnaird's work has attracted serious consideration by acquisitionists and film studios alike. Respectively, "The Villikon Chronicles" has been revered as an intelligent tale, worthy of master storytellers H.G. Wells, Ray Bradbury, Frank Herbert, and cinematic genius George Lucas.

Literary agent, Mr. George Kaplan of the Cano Agency represents Bryan's material.
