  • A Master Of Djinn – by P. Djèlí Clark

    If you follow this blog, the Dead Djinn Universe needs no introduction at this point. After talking about the shorter works set in its world, we now get to its longest and most famous piece, that is to say A Master Of Djinn. I was really excited to go back once again to P. Djèlí Clark’s enchanted Cairo, and even more so to see a more extensive exploration of its themes.


  • The Haunting Of Tram 015 – by P. Djèlí Clark

    Once again, let’s talk about to the Dead Djinn Universe. If you’ve read my previous posts, you’re already familiar with its setting and core concepts. The Haunting Of Tram 015 takes us back to the world of supernatural investigations, in the same spirit as A Dead Djinn In Cairo; this novella, indeed, shares some similarities with the first work of the series, and while it has a different main character and an entirely independent story, it does make open references to its events. Now, let’s see how the concept fares in a slightly longer format.


  • The Angel Of Khan El-Khalili – by P. Djèlí Clark

    Second entry dedicated to the Dead Djinn Universe! Today I’ll be talking about its shortes that is to say The Angel Of Khan El-Khalili, a story originally published as a part of the anthology Clockwork Cairo, and now available for free at Tor.com.


  • A Dead Djinn In Cairo – by P. Djèlí Clark

Its longest and perhaps most famous work is A Master Of Djinn – but you know me, and even if you don’t, I know myself… What I am trying to say is that, once the concept got my attention, I had to start from the very beginning. So here we go.
