Latro forgets everything when he sleeps. 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. The two previous novels, combined in "Latro in the Mist" ("Soldier of the Mist" and "Soldier of Arete") are generally considered classics of contemporary fantasy.
Latro now finds himself in Egypt, a land of singing girls, of spiteful and conniving deities. Without his memory, his is unsure of everything, except for his desire to be free of the curse that causes him to forget. The visions Gene Wolfe conjures, of the wonders of Egypt, and of the adventures of Latro as he and his companions journey up the great Nile south into unknown or legendary territory, are unique and compelling. "Soldier of Sidon" is a thrilling and magical fantasy novel, and yet another masterpiece from Gene Wolfe.

Sequel to 'Soldier in the Mist'. Latro still bears a curse that makes him forget (head wound). Very well done - but very sad.
