    With the third installment of the soldier series gene wolfe proves his place among the pantheon of the greatest sf writers in modern times. Follow Latro on his adventures into the deepest parts of the Egyptian empire in search of his sword and more importantly his fleeting memory and the release from his interesting curse.

    Due to war injuries Latro¿s short term memory is lost. When he wakes up he remembers nothing of the previous day. To compensate, he has learned to write down everything important that happened that day, a desperately needed diary to help him survive his amnesia.----------- On the other hand Latro has the ability to see beings who are invisible to everyone else. He treats gods and supernatural essences as if they are humans unable to distinguish the difference between the immortal and the mortal. To stay safe he writes down all he has done or seen that he thought was critical, but the next day when his memory is lost to the mists, he is unable to fill the gaps. Latro¿s latest journey has brought him to Egypt where the Gods are ugly towards humans, especially one whose curse is to forget all he encountered. They use and abuse lost wanderers like Latro unless his scribbles remind him who not to trust.------------------ The third Latro historical fantasy adventure ( see SOLDIER OF THE MIST and SOLDIER OF ARETE) is a superb tale that once again makes the case that present and future generations put their values on display while interpreting history by filling the gaps as history does not accept a vacuum. Latro is terrific especially when he reads what he previously has written and finds gaps and unclear statements that he obviously felt was accurate when he wrote them. Besides the delightful historiographical spin, his look at Ancient Egypt provides the audience with a deep insightful glimpse into the society¿s isms, spiritual and mundane, as Latro straddles both realms.----------- Harriet Klausner
