Cover Spiegelglatt 1

Mirror smooth

A dromedary, two scientists, Nordic mythology in real reflections, Damascus at the time of the Umayyads and fascist Berlin in the sinking Führerbunker. Evil shadows from the labyrinths of wickedness, failed creatures that leave no stone unturned in order to survive. Somehow. Somewhere. Sometime. Cannes and Sparta, KGB and Picasso, Kangaslampi, sleep and hold out. If need be, in the mirror. The idea behind this story, which is as original as it is tricky, can hardly be misunderstood: as you call into the forest, it sounds out. For God’s sake or thank God.

Cover Strangers in the light 1

Strangers in the light

The novel tells the story of the through and through windy FBI agent Jerry Nylon, who has to endure many bad events before fateful coincidences initiate a turning point that nobody could have expected. The report begins in the brash jargon of a penny novel, often makes use of the art of pointed exaggeration, as is more common in shrill comics, and does not shy away from profound gossip. This story tells about the Vatican as well as about a bizarre crash landing in Cuba, not to mention that inhuman clan who not only spin their invisible webs in the background.


The sleeping colors

The novel is a homage to the predominantly 17th century. popular genre of picaresque novel. At the end of the 19th century, an ambitious impostor, whose real name is never mentioned, stumbles from one adventure to another. Crude, elegant and often extremely delicate are his experiences that ultimately bring him from Paris via Switzerland to Vienna. The narrative is full of surprising twists and turns and, in keeping with the style of its traditional predecessors, has a characteristic structure as a timeless moral image of human coexistence in all its conceit and all its beauty.

Slatin Lover

A grotesque tale, largely against a historical background. The period of the episodic story spans two days in 1914, shortly after the outbreak of the First World War, when something terrible happened in the Hungarian village of Nagyrév. The Austrian adventurer and governor Rudolf Freiherr von Slatin is fatefully called to this place in those days, where ultimately equally strange and inevitable visits of longing and denial, of love and death come true.
