A Dead Djinn in Cairo by P. Djèlí Clark

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


An investigator in an alternative Egypt with ghuls, djinn, angels, other-worldly foes, a plethora of faiths and all set in a steampunk world.

The writing is nothing special, the plot still mostly to-be-found at the end of this mercyfully very short novella – this is pretty much the most boring novella I’ve read in years.

The most redeeming feature of the simplistically named “A Dead Djinn in Cairo” is its brevity.
