Ahhh Susan, your such a fluger!Click for full image

The Tim’s Art Direction: Okay, start with a monster with an improbably wide rear stance. Throw in some terrified citizens in jumpsuits. Now throw some rubble flying in impossible directions in there for good measure.
Published 1980

    From the back cover blurb:
    “It was four hundred massive kilos of violence, savagery and hatred.”
    That’s base slander, sir! I assure you that Rush Limbaugh weighs only three hundred and eighty kilos.

    Does that Fluger (rhymes with “cougar”, not “Flubber”) have an ossified wattle?

  5. SI Says:

    That sounds like the type of word you’d make.

    “Ahhh Fluger… that monster has burst right through my bloody wall!”

    I’ll bet you that “invincible” monster is defeated by some kid in a wheelchair who tosses a glass of water at it….

    In the future, everyone must ensure to wear a different set of colored clothing.

    Ha! That is my book. My buddy Tim was over at my house for my birthday and told me about this website and how I needed to get this picture up there.

    I bought it years ago when I first googled my name and found out there was a book with my surname as the title.

    The book is even worse than the title however. Almost incomprehensible.

    Finally, yes, “fluger” rhymes with “cougar”. 🙂

    I was hoping the Fluger was French, “Le Fleu-zhay”.

    “Never before in paperback” says the back cover. And never again, say I.

    Costumes: the male characters are so wearing the same jumpsuits as in classic Star Trek (remember the miners in the Horta episode?) And the lady clearly bought her dress from the same dressmaker as

    All right, who animated the Mayan sphinx statue?

    ‘It was four hundred massive kilos of violence, savagery and hatred. But it could only filter plankton through its soft, stiff, bristle-like teeth into its fist-sized throat.’

    Man: “Time to take out the fluger! Let’s kick some butt!”
    Woman: “Take out what?”
    Man: “The fluger!”
    Woman: “What’s a ‘fluger’?”
    Man: “What do you mean ‘what’s a fluger’? I told you to bring it!”
    Woman: “Do you guys know what a ‘fluger’ is?”
    The others: “We’ve never heard of it before. Look, we have to move. That thing looks hungry.”
    Woman: “Well, I didn’t bring it because I don’t know what it is either!”
    Man: “The gun! You know, the fluger.”
    Woman: “You mean a ‘luger’?”
    Man: “Yeah, well… Whatever. Did you bring it?”
    Woman: “Of course not! You didn’t tell me to bring it!”
