Egypt: The Book of Going Forth by Day is a  novel-like narrative constructed in Director and played on a Shockwave player, so you will be using your regular browser to explore it.  Be sure to have your sound turned on!  Inserting the CD-ROM, opening the filelist for the disk, and then clicking on your name will open your Book.


Egypt:  The Book of Going Forth by Day is available in individualized versions through 2006.  Each copy of the first edition is hand recorded and is unique:  your copy will have your own “Spell” to protect you in the Underworld/Tuat.  In ancient Egyptian practice, copies of the Book of the Dead were individualized for each recipient.  A person could order the exact spells he or she wanted, and the name [such as “the Osiris So-and-So”] was filled in accordingly.  Your “Spell” will appear on the verso of one of the Papyrus sections of the story.

Even if you can’t read this now, be sure to take it with you when you go!

Please e-mail me if you are interested in having your own Named Spell in your copy.  Formal publication by Horizon Insight will take place in 2006.  Egypt will be also be available at
