Published by Tom Doherty Associates, LLC. 175 Fifth Avenue. Be warned that books purporting to list all the gods of ancient Egypt do not. Books of the dead were what today is called a publishing category. Certain elements are common to all; many more depend on which is consulted.

Soldier of Sidon book. Latro forgets everything when he sleeps. The most obvious is the fact that it was written 17 years after the last volume, leaving quite a cliffhanger for contemporary readers (and actually no indication that there would even be a sequel).
The third book in the Latro series from science fiction and fantasy master Gene Wolfe, Soldier of Sidon. Writing down his experiences every day and reading his journal anew each morning gives him a poignantly tenuous hold on himself, but his story's hold on readers is powerful indeed.
