    Wonderfully immersive and original stories. This collection was unlike most books I have read in recent years. Mahvesh Murad and Jared Shurin collected wonderful stories from all over the world showcasting the different types of Djinns (or Jinns, or Genies or whatever you would like...

    ***Note: I received a copy curtesy of Netgalley and Solaris / Rebellion Publishing in exchange for an honest review. A wide variety of short tales featuring very different types of djinns/jinns/genies, some anchored in reality, some in mysticism, others SF-ish. Some authors I alread...

    ?Indeed We created man from dried clay of black smooth mud. And We created the Jinn before that from the smokeless flame of fire.? (Quran 15:26-27) As a Muslim, lore for me has been rather different than the lore you might have grown up with. Of course there are no such things a...

    I'll admit I was a bit wary when I picked up Djinn Falls In Love: tempted by authors such as K.J. Parker and Claire North, I worried that the collection itself might suffer from repetition. I needn't have worried. The collection demonstrates a truly staggering variety of perspectives o...

    I think the best way I can review this to collection is to say that when I finished it, I clicked straight back to the table of contents, went down the list of authors, and added a stack of books to my TBR. It really is excellent. It ranges from Arabian Nights pastiche to modern da...

    An excellent collection! There's a huge variety of stories in so many ways: a wide variety of genres, a wide variety of authors, a wide variety of ways in which the djinn are portrayed. That diversity makes for a really interesting collection that doesn't get repetitive even after ...
