Their novels appear symbolful, träumerisch mysteriös. It mostly concerns that humans with the raid in the universe with events and problemsare confronted, which they did not grow. Sometimes, as in “firebreak”, however an adjustment succeeds to the new conditions. The persons in one of their Kurzgeschichten lose even their life, by uniting with manlike however opposite natures. They cannot prevent this however, therethe forces, which steer it, are larger than all reason.
