Just discovered something I hadn't put into the first version of this, about one of the main (historical) characters, although bad me for making the obvious (and wrong) assumption. It also gives me a much clearer sense of what one of the present-day characters is doing / what's happening to her.

Plus I am learning much good about the position of women in Ancient Egypt.

OTOH* I seem to have disposed of my copy of "Magic in Ancient Egypt" by Geraldine Pinch which I would have bought at the time of the first version c. 1998. A quick check of my diary reveals I went to the British Museum to research Egyptian things on 23 January 1999 and I probably bought the book then. A shame I don't have it any more, because it was useful.

* and not OTO, though as I recall they (the Ordo Templi Orientis) make an appearance in the first version.


And then

there's the name of that character. Of course the spelling is a Victorian transcription. Giving it a more modern transcription makes it much clearer.
