about

A fascinating collection of new and classic tales of the fearsome Djinn, from bestselling, award-winning and breakthrough international writers.

Imagine a world filled with fierce, fiery beings, hiding in our shadows, in our dreams, under our skins. Eavesdropping and exploring; savaging our bodies, saving our souls. They are monsters, saviours, victims, childhood friends. Some have called them genies: these are the Djinn.

And they are everywhere. On street corners, behind the wheel of a taxi, in the chorus, between the pages of books. Every language has a word for them. Every culture knows their traditions. Every religion, every history has them hiding in their dark places.

There is no part of the world that does not know them.

They are the Djinn. They are among us.

With stories from: Nnedi Okorafor, Neil Gaiman, Amal El-Mohtar, Catherine King, Claire North,  E.J. Swift, Hermes (trans. Robin Moger), Jamal Mahjoub, James Smythe, J.Y. Yang, Kamila Shamsie, Kirsty Logan, K.J. Parker, Kuzhali Manickavel, Maria Dahvana Headley, Monica Byrne,  Saad Hossein, Sami Shah, Sophia Al-Maria and Usman Malik.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great anthology for sf/f fans! This is a really good collection! Like any anthology, some of the entries are stronger and some are a bit weaker, but I found the overall quality to be quite high. They explore the djinn from a number of different angles. There's a good mix of historical fiction, urban fantasy, regular fantasy, and even some science fiction and post-apocalyptic stories!
