One of his best regarded episodes was for the New Twilight Zone, an adaptation of his own story Her Pilgrim Soul, which became a play.

Judd, historical people who appear in the novel. It received mostly favorable reviews [1].

In 2009, Brennert returned to Hawai'i in Honolulu, an historical novel centering on a Korean picture bride in the early 1900s. Honolulu was released by St. Martin's Press to favorable reviews.
