Cairo, 1912: The case started as a simple one for the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities — handling a possessed tram car.

Soon, however, Agent Hamed Nasr and his new partner Agent Onsi Youssef are exposed to a new side of Cairo stirring with suffragettes, secret societies, and sentient automatons in a race against time to protect the city from an encroaching danger that crosses the line between the magical and the mundane.

This novella is set after A Dead Djinn in Cairo, the novelette which introduced the Djinnpunk universe Clark would go on to flesh out in A Master of Djinn. It’s slower paced than the novel and you will find not only characters, but wholesale setting descriptions reused in the latter, but that doesn’t detract from either’s qualities as a new and truly original original voice in speculative fiction.
