Context

The first page of the novel Deus ex Machina: Logos says,

“Logos,” the Greek term, intimates an incarnation of creation through utterances, phrases creating essence.

Given that, and the definition provided on this page, within the context of the novel, logos refers both to the text of the book, and to how those words are used to literally create the novel.
