Toxic Old Kween

I just finished A Dead Djinn in Cairo by P. Djèlí Clark. You can read the entire short story here, on for free.

It takes place in an alternate 1912 Egypt. Magic exists, due to someone unlocking the doorway between our world and another. Now Djinn, Angels, Ghuls, and Sorcerers are a thing. The story starts off as a murder investigation lead by Fatma el-Sha’arawi, an Investigator for the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments, and Supernatural Entities. As these things go, there is more to it than meets the eye.

I love the world the author has created. He has written a longer(though still novella length) story set in the same world, called The Haunting of Tram Car 015, that I'm really looking forward to picking up next.
