ENGELTEUFEL By Frank Luger
eBook (PDF): $5.00
(2 Ratings)
This is a one-act, two scenes pseudoplay (meant to be read, not seen on stage or screen) about a reluctant Antichrist who must die to save the world from thermonuclear annihilation. The act takes... More > place in the jury room of the Israeli Supreme Court in Jerusalem. Nine senior judges constitute the jury. A death sentence is required to avoid World War III. However, no matter how much the defendant's life story is scrutinized, they cannot find him guilty, there is no proper evidence. Yet they must reach a unanimous verdict because of the unbearable international pressure especially from the superpowers. They manipulate the accused to make him plead guilty and they actually offer him permission to choose his mode of execution. He finally chooses public crucifixion. The sentence is carried out yet the play ends on a true note of hope. This is an original literary work written in 1985, first published in 2007.< Less
GOTTZDANK By Frank Luger

This is a 1-act pseudoplay (meant to be read, not seen on stage or screen) about major philosophical arguments for and against the existence of God. The setting is the house of the Philosopher, where... More > a dozen old friends, representing various professions, gather for a meeting. However, another friend, the beloved Teacher, is missing; he is in hospital due to a serious, perhaps fatal accident. While the friends anxiously await news of him they decide to debate the problem of God in order to better appreciate his saintly character. The neutral Philosopher chairs and arbitrates the debate which soon deteriorates into faction fights and insults. In the middle of a brawl a layman gets involved, but refuses to take sides. This aggravates the situation to the point of a clash, at the crescendo of which the Teacher appears in a quasi- 'deus ex machina' fashion and provides resolutions of the dilemmas by moral beacons and glimmers of hope for the future. This work was written in 1985, published in 2007.< Less

Kaisergemse (German, literally meaning 'imperial chamois') is an autobiographical novella based on a scrupulously honest true story. Richly illustrated with authentic photographs, it details the... More > first 22 years of the Author's life while sharing a rather unique mountain-climbing experience in Central Austria, where he was vacationing with his ageing parents in August, 1986. Following the 1956 Hungarian rebellion, the Author was jailed at age 14 for anticommunist 'crimes', and thus became the youngest political prisoner in the history of Hungary. At age 20 he escaped to Italy via Yugoslavia, and thus broke through the Iron Curtain. After another series of improbable 'adventures', he was granted political asylum in West-Germany, yet as soon as he could, he took up residence in Miami, Florida. However, because of the Vietnam war and likely draft, he ended up settling in Canada. This is an original literary work written in April 1987, first published in September, 2007.< Less
WALHALLAPLAN By Frank Luger

This is a pseudoplay (the kind meant to be read, not seen on stage or screen) about the nature of Evil. The play begins with the real-live crucifixion of the main protagonist on Mount Zion in... More > present-day Jerusalem and continues with five flashbacks in five Acts, examining Evil by means of the thoughts, actions and personality clashes of the various characters. The plot intensifies throughout the Acts, first with a crescendo at the end of Act One, then with another at the end of Act Three, and then with a final crescendo at the end of Act Five. The climax leads directly to the crucifixion scene in the Prologue. Finally, a resolution of the main problem is provided in the Epilogue, and it is shown how Evil may be harnessed and made to serve Good. The play thus ends on a note of hope and cautious optimism but without underestimating the power of Evil. It was written in December 1986, completed in March, 1987, and published for the first time in August, 2007, for the second in January, 2018.< Less

FARBENSINN By Frank Luger
eBook (PDF): $5.00
(1 Ratings)
"Farbensinn" (German for "Colors-sense") is a fairly comprehensive collection of the Author's scientific essays and miscellaneous scientific writings covering a period of more... More > than thirty-five years. The articles touch upon a great variety of both academic and nonacademic topics from biology to medicine, from psychology and psychometrics to the philosophy of science, from mathematics to theoretical physics, from history to applied science, etc. For the sake of levity, even some jokes and humorous anecdotes are included. However, there is no unifying theme as such, and neither the collection nor its presentation have any particular sequence or structure. The book is illustrated with many original photographs. It is hoped that this modest but 'colorful' anthology will serve both informative and entertaining purposes, while providing fairly representative glances into its topics. This is a recently completed original literary work first published in December, 2007.< Less
HERZENBLUT By Frank Luger
eBook (PDF): $5.00
(2 Ratings)
"Herzenblut" (German for Heartsblood) is a chronological compilation of amateur poetry from 1972 to 1987. It is best regarded as the Author's poetic 'apprenticeship' as he first experiments... More > with freestyle 'found poetry' but then works his way into prosody and 'discovers' meter, rhythm, rhyme, etc. All the poems in this volume may thus be divided into three phases: before Mitzi, Mitzi series, and miscellany. To be sure, the whole volume is subtitled "a poetry of selfish torment"; but the tragic love affair with Mitzi was what provided the themes as well as the motivation for the poems preoccupied with Love. This is signified by signing such poems as "Felix" with a touch of self-mockery. Much of this sulking poetry is bitter bile, painful reproach, or sour grapes; but evolutionary patterns may be discerned, which culminate in emotional breakthrough at the end. This is an original literary work written in April 1987, first published in October, 2007.< Less
SEELENKRAFT By Frank Luger
eBook (PDF): $5.00
(2 Ratings)
"Seelenkraft" (German, lit. "soul-strength") is the final volume of the Author's poetry-trilogy covering a period of some 18 years. It continues the tentative gropings of the two... More > previous volumes toward the factual, objective, and nonreligious God of the Universe while exploring the possible human relevance of such God through transcendental, perhaps even cosmic morality. The evolutionary pattern of this personal quest is shown in increasing objectivity and scientific perspective. However, science as such is hardly featured in this book despite some scientific terminology. Almost a third of the poems touching on morality had been originally written in Hebrew, but (amateurish) translations, even transliterations are provided. There are also a few poems in other languages, such as French and Hungarian. The two main themes are separately summarized in the Appendix in two slim collections. This is an original literary work begun in June 1989, first published in December, 2007.< Less
HIMMELGEIST By Frank Luger
eBook (PDF): $5.00
(2 Ratings)
"Himmelgeist" (German for 'Spirit of Heaven') is subtitled "A Poetry of Divine Agony". Why? Because it is devoted to one theme only: an uncompromisingly honest search for God, not... More > as a truth of any organized religion or individual belief, but as a fact of the same indisputable kind as gravitation or electromagnetism. However, except for a few poems, science as such is absent from this volume; and the 'operational framework' is still the God of the Bible, i.e. the kind of Heavenly Father that most people still associate with the concept of God. The search herein is not unlike an intellectual-moral Odyssey, which shows a kind of evolutionary pattern from some initially gloomy imagery to the cautious optimism of the closing poems. The pen-name "Felix" of the previous volume is replaced by "Dr. Mir", in fact, this book contains every poem written by him over a 21-month period. This is an original literary work, written from June 1987 until March 1989, first published in 2007.< Less
