An Interesting Aspect of my Novels

Hereby some words about my novels. They have a common ground, they share a basic attitude to reality.





In 2017 I published Redeeming Lucifer. A fantasy novel. More about it here.


One interesting thing about it is this: it has one character in common with my other novel, Burning Magnesium (2018).


Ain’t that funny? Because, Burning Magnesium plays on the Eastern Front of WWII. Redeeming Lucifer is a fantasy. However, they both connect to the same dreamworld, to the same extramundane dimension = the astral world. And the figure common to both stories is an astral world drifter, one Ringo Badger. 


In Redeeming Lucifer, in a fairy land, he is portrayed thus:


”He was eventually let inside by a servant, a tall figure with a long, aquiline nose, a striped, pointed cap on his head and clothes of red and green. This was Ringo Badger, Morven’s butler and handyman.” [p. 29]


And in Burning Magnesium, in a dream state, the hero encounters the same figure:


“Next to Arno, in the dream, stood a tall man with an aquiline nose, a man dressed in a red and yellow silk hood, a green tunic, blue breeches and boots. He introduced himself as Ringo Badger, his spirit guide.” [p. 91]


There you have it, the unlikely connection between my two novels. You could say: they both, in their separate ways, portray the Astral War, the spirit war, the war constantly going on since the dawn of time. And “Ringo Badger” is one symbol of this.

Svensson: Science Fantasy Superman (poem)


Hereby a poem. By me. The theme is supermanism, Actionism, and such.

I am superman – overman – man plus.


I am Gil Gosseyn, Jommy Cross...

Robert Hedrock, Johnnie Holt...

Sweyn Bostron, Peter Maltby...


Processing data with lightning speed.

Moving in circles around you.


I am Kim Kinnison, Jack Steelnack,

Rock Strongo, Donal Graeme...


Astounding – amazing – 


I am willpower and vision...

wishing it – wanting it – getting it – 




Superman dreaming of golden dawn –


Donal Greame, superman of Dorsai,

successful everywhere, conquering all – 

and, at last, leaving the ground and soaring...


Tam Olyn, another Dorsai, standing in

mankind’s super library, hearing the collective

voice of mankind –




Diamond, pearl... coral, amber...

silver and gold... silver and gold...


In my Karma Town palace collecting gold bars,

stacking ‘em two by two, four by four,

down hallways, hallways going on forever...


Infinite hallway, infinite gold bar,

infinite opulence... 




Triumph des Kunstes…

Heil dir im Siegeskranz...


Triumph, success, win, Sieg...


Triumph, victory, bull’s eye –

gain, killing, sweep, hit –




Going for gold –

golden gold – 


Golden Oldies, Twenty Golden Greats –

They gave him gold, incense and myrrh –

As good as gold – 


Precious gem keyboard, playing my song –

on diamonds and pearls, five of each, pentatonic –

on gold, and gold, and gold and gold; five gold bars –

and on rubies five, that’s the whole gamut – 


And the song is playing, beautiful music,

infinite opulence, infinite shimmer, endless

luster, endless sparkle...


On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love 

gave to me: five gold rings...




50 million dollar man –

Kraft, Wille, Leben – 

Künstler, Genie, Held –

Unter magisch-totemistichen Zeichen –




I am god, I am Camouflage now...

world, hear, this here is Camouflage...




I am superman...


I am Martian Messiah, Pleiadean Preacher,

Creator of Actionism, Teacher of Man...


I am Liberator of Man, Earth Messiah...


I am Science Fiction, Science Fact...


I am god. I am Camouflage.
