Seshat - 'the Internet goddess' features in 'The Forbidden Glyphs', Egypt Fiction

Egyptologist Anson Hunter starts receiving intriguing emails from a female who calls herself Seshat...

Seshat… Egyptian goddess of the Internet.

In a curious loop of time, the ancient Egyptian goddess Seshat has found new recognition today. Referred to as the ‘Silicon Goddess’ or ‘Glass Cat’, she is seen as the spirit of the Internet, computers, operating systems, software, web and game architecture, telecommunications, electronic networks and knowledge systems.

Originally, Seshat was ancient Egypt’s goddess of writing, chief librarian and keeper of the forbidden scrolls of Thoth, goddess of knowledge, architecture, science, mathematics, astronomy, reckoner of years and of foreign booty as well as a keeper of history and memories.
