The god Set (aka Seth) is a paradox for Egyptologists. Amongst later Egyptians, Set was blamed for every misfortune that can befall humanity. In earlier times, in particular the prosperous Ramesside period, Set was a god who was very much adored. Even in Ptolemaic and Roman times we occasionally find a piece that was a part of worship and magical rites. Set was always seen as  powerfl, even when he was feared. Putting all his imagery together, placing it in chronological context, the author sheds some new light on the dark god.
