Thoth; a romance
by Nicholson, J. Shield (Joseph Shield), 1850-1927

this is interesting. according to the preface, the author had originally planned to make it a sort of science fiction but then changed his mind. what has become of it now is a book set in ancient times, with vivid descriptions and characters.

Quote:
Thoth played many vital and prominent roles in Egyptian mythology, such as maintaining the universe, and being one of the two deities (the other being Ma'at) who stood on either side of Ra's boat. In the later history of ancient Egypt, Thoth became heavily associated with the arbitration of godly disputes, the arts of magic, the system of writing, the development of science, and the judgment of the dead.
