What happens when a long lost remnant of the ancient Egyptians rescues a downed pilot? What treasures lie hidden in their archives? How did their civilization develop? How can he return to the "Out-lands?" Can there be happiness after your true love dies?
Horus Golden and, Margaret, the girl next door had been constant companions for their entire lives. Her father, a Korean War Ace, nurtured their love of flying. His mother, a renowned Egyptologist, nurtured their love of ancient Egypt. While pushing a child from his path, Margaret was killed by a drunk driver when she was 14. Horus vowed to honor her by becoming the best pilot in the US Air Force.
Horus was selected to demonstrate the F-18 to the Egyptian military. He was severely injured and his F-18 fatally damaged by Egyptian dissidents planning a coup. Covering up the incident led to the collapse of the coup. Since the plane and pilot were never found, the suspicion was that Horus had defected to Iran.
In spite of all precautions, the pyramids and tombs of the Pharaoh's were routinely robbed. Pharaoh Senworset I established a remote colony, named Maat, in the Western Desert so that his history would be preserved forever. Only a few high priests knew of its existence. At appointed times the priest would meet emissaries from Maat in a designated spot to exchange new material for the archives for copies of material requested at the previous meeting.
Memory and contact with Maat were lost after the sacking of Alexandria. Maat's civilization grew in harmony with its needs and resources. Over the years, many attempted to reestablish contact with the outside world, but the messengers always succumbed to the harsh desert or were killed by the bandits who infest the Western fringe of the Nile valley.
Divine Providence dropped Horus into Maat. He was nursed back to health by Nefertiti, a young woman who had tragically lost her teen-aged fiancee.
Horus explored Maat, met its people, delved into its archives, and fell in love with Nefertiti - all while seeking a way to return to face the music for having lost his plane.
Maybe Maat does not exist - but it could. Come see what treasurers and adventures it might reveal if we ever find Pharaoh's lost colony - and see how Divine Providence can make something good out of what was intended to be evil.
