BLUMENSTAND By Frank Luger
Paperback: $25.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
(2 Ratings)
"Blumenstand" (German for Flowers-stand") is an almost comprehensive collection of the Author's nonscientific essays and miscellaneous writings covering a period of more than... More > thirty-five years. The articles touch upon a great variety of both academic and nonacademic topics from anthropology to sociology, from psychology to philosophy, from history to music, from literature to politics and political science, from religion to morality, from chessplaying to dartplaying, from horseracing and travel to whisly-distilling, 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 richly illustrated, as per topic relevance. It is sincerely hoped that this modest anthology will serve both informative and entertaining purposes. This is a recently completed original literary work, first published in December, 2007.< Less

"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
WALHALLAPLAN By Frank Luger
eBook (PDF): $5.00
(2 Ratings)
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-life 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. This is an original literary work written in December 1986, completed in March 1987, and first published in August, 2007.< Less

KAISERGEMSE By Frank Luger
eBook (PDF): $5.00

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
EHRENWORT By Frank Luger
eBook (PDF): $5.00
(2 Ratings)
Based on a true story, "Ehrenwort" (German for "word of honour") is a pseudoplay (the kind meant to be read, not seen on stage or screen) about the fatal clash between two... More > brothers near the end of World War II. Franz, the older brother, is an angelically good doctor in the Wehrmacht, the German Regular Army; but his younger brother Rolf is a fanatically Nazi evil maniac, Engineer, and Captain in the Waffen-SS. Caught in the middle is positive reality, represented by Maria, the wife of Franz; and two Russian officers, a senior Commander, and his junior adjutant. The characters and the plot are deliberately exaggerated and melodramatic in order to bring many historical, intellectual, and moral dilemmas into sharper focus; for example what genuine nobility is all about, why did Germany follow Hitler, how could the Holocaust take place, who was responsible for what, who was guilty of what, and so on. This is an original literary work written in 1984, published for the first time in 2007.< Less

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
