About the Author

Gregor Spörri was born in Basel, Switzerland, in 1955. Following school, vocational training, and military service, he founded an event and equipment company for road shows and clubs, which he still runs today.
In 1988, Spörri traveled to Egypt to dive for wrecks. Afterward, he explored the country’s historic sites to gather ideas for a dance club in Ancient Egyptian style. But the adventurer in him also had extracurricular activities in mind – he wanted to be locked up for a night in the great Pyramid of Khufu in order to conduct daring experiments, alone and undisturbed.
His strange project didn’t go unnoticed and brought him in contact with an old grave robber, who seemed to know more about the fabled pyramids than any Egyptologist. In the end, the Arab even allowed the Swiss to look at his family treasure, which included a gruesome relic. Spörri’s view of the world was shaken – because the relic appeared to be the severed limb of a prehistoric, humanoid giant, as they appear in ancient myths, legends and the Holy Bible. The photos he took of the limb made its way around the world.
The Egypt shock, his research, the exploration trips with Erich von Däniken – Swiss pioneer of the ancient astronauts theory, as well as the conversations with H.R. Giger – master of dark surrealism and creator of the monster from the film series ALIEN, inspired Gregor Spörri to write LOST GOD.
