I was wondering if you and the Bitchery could help me remember a book I read, probably the mid-to-late 90s. I remember I bought it in one of those cheap-o romance novel sets you could get at Waldenbooks. Two or three bound together with cellophane for about $3. Anyway, this one in particular was so cool, but I got rid of it because my mother frowned upon romances. I remember it had a silvery glittery cover, with just the title—no people on the front. It was about a woman who for some reason was seeing a therapist, and she agreed to be hypnotized. She ended up going back to her past life while under hypnosis (I want to say her past self was living in the 1800s, maybe early 1900s), and was involved with a cult of some sort that worshipped some ancient Egyptian god. It ended up that the story went back and forth between her present and past self, and the villain (the head of the cult, I think) was able to follow her to the present. So she was in danger in both lives. The hero was there to help her fight the cult, and then somehow his present self found her present self and they lived happily ever after. I know it’s not much to go on, but I still think about that book today and would like to reread it. Or maybe the Bitchery would even have suggestions for similar books?
Hypnotic time travel? That’s a new one—almost as good as hypnotic breaking of the “Give a Shit,” a la Office Space.
