About the Author
Writer/Director. I enjoy taking ancient Greek myths and turning them into modern sci-fi spooky versions. I also like to write romantic comedies, and people seem to go "Awww!" over them, so why not?
Many of my stories are icky, in various ways. I’m European, we have a higher tolerance for that kind of stuff. Plus, I’m inspired by mythology and Shakespeare, so if you can’t handle tragedy and bodily fluids, feel free to move on.

The premise is classic sci-fi. Man dreams up theory. Question is if he can prove it and still be present with his family. When is a cyborg helpful? Can cyborgs even be helpful or are they more a dream? Still not sure I even liked this. I certainly suggest Saoulidis find another narrator as this one put me to sleep.
Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite Crying Over Spilt Light (God Complex Universe) by George Saoulidis was a very interesting concept about what exactly a muse is. As any kind of artist will attest, the muse is what gives the artist their sense of inspiration. Some might go so far as to say it is a window into their soul. So can a muse be artificially created? Can a robot (or so called intelligent life) inspire? Can it replace the soul? Or the lost creativity of a dried up, over worked, tired man? These are some of the deep questions put forth in this story that the reader must wade through to see if they believe that the muse can be recreated by science. I love stories that include robots and artificial intelligence because I believe we are not far away from that in our every day life. I think that is not a stretch at all to believe, so it makes a science fiction story very believable for me. Fans of science fiction and stories like I, Robot and Robopocalypse will be intrigued by this tale and its concepts. The writing was intriguing, the characters were interesting, and the concepts were so crazy and interesting that this story inspires you to think long after you have reached the last page. People will be talking about this story and I think the answers they pick to the questions asked will say a lot about each person individually.
Was given this book in exchange for honest review. Hmm, what could I say? This book was excellent. The writing style is decent, and the characters ' development is also very good. I love how the author refers to Greek Mythology and other scientific theories in his / her writing. One of my favourites book that I've read in this year.
