From official release/information:

Some stories are so good that when you finish the book, you fondly hope the author will write another. While there are plenty of writers who give us a book a year following the same hero, some make you wait a while for the next piece of a great tale. After more than 15 years, Gene Wolfe has released a new book about Latro, a roman soldier who is cursed so that he can only remember what happened since he last awoke. We know of his adventures because of some scrolls found in an archaic form of Latin, which Mr. Wolfe has kindly translated for our reading pleasure. In Soldier of Sidon, another of Latro's scrolls have been found, this time in Egypt. At long last fans of these books can find out what happened to Latro after he left Greece and if he has yet regained his memory.
