The Anubis Gates (1983) is a time travel fantasy novel by Tim Powers. It won the 1983 Philip K. Dick Award and 1984 Science Fiction Chronicle Award.
Anubis - Greek name for a jackal-headed god associated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion. Not sure if there were a character from a franchise for this, though.
The Anubis Gates, Tim Powers. One of the original Steampunk books. If you can't actually be thrown back in time to a smelly, dangerous and magic-ridden Victorian London, then this is the next best thing.
