The cover of Gregor Spörri's 300-page book gives the interested reader an idea only in the beginning which secrets are given in this fictional apocalypse prize. Just out – it is not for tender-stringed minds or romantically transfigured souls who want to follow the old world view of religion and history. Here, concentrated knowledge, away from the mainstream media, is bound with a fictional future story to a gloomy end-time mood-reading work. A reading material that has it all and overshadows Emmerich's "Independent Day" as a gentle bed reading. Link to the unabridged review
Gregor Spörri has succeeded with "Lost God" a remarkably exciting as well as unconventional sci-fi thriller. The ever-changing perspectives create a rapid narrative pace. Nevertheless, there is still room for a lot of insidious information. Thus, the author combines almost trashy science fiction with thoughtful technical considerations, adaptations of border-scientific theses, own experiences and partly satirical criticism of our current social conditions. Somehow, everything results in a round whole, which pulls the reader along to the dramatic end. Link to the unabridged review
Author Gregor Spörri can take it with "Master of Disaster" Roland Emmerich. From page 104, hell breaks loose on earth and in space. One disaster chases the next. The "divine superpower" knows no mercy. Violent scenes arise in the head. And yet there is a striking difference to Emmerich. While his stories and characters often come flat and dribble with pathos, "Lost God" turns out to be a profound end-time thriller with intelligent storylines, characters and dialogues. I hope this fantastic story will soon find its way to the big screen.
What if the heavenly beings revered and feared as gods all over the world millennia ago were once again haunting the earth, as the advocates of the Paleo-SETI thesis can imagine?

What makes me special is the special appeal of this truly apocalyptic science fiction thriller: LOST GOD is a real page turner, which I could hardly put out of my hand, so much the plot written in the style of a reportage captivated me.
A mystery thriller that predicts the end of the world in the near future. "Lost God" is about the return of the biblical gods from the point of view of pre-astronautism. But the book offers even more: a tangible spacecraft adventure, a dark vision of Islamist terror, etc. Reading was a lot of fun for me, because I love stories peppered with surprises and shortcuts. Exciting is also the beginning of the book, where the author tells of his incredible discovery in Egypt and then cleverly links this real part with the fictional part of the story, which has burrowed deep into my consciousness like an apocalyptic purgatory.
As a follower and advocate of extraterrestrial intervention on earth, I have long been involved in this topic thanks to Erich von Däniken and Mysteries.

A really exciting read – Lost God impressed me. In a playful way, biblical narratives and myths are combined into an imaginative chronicle of the end of the world.
