About the Author

Born in New York and raised mostly in Houston, P. Djeli Clark spent the formative years of his life in the homeland of his parents, Trinidad and Tobago. He is the author of the novellas The Black God's Drums, winner of a 2019 Alex Award from the American Library Association; The Haunting of Tram Car 015; and A Dead Djinn in Cairo. His short story 'The Secret Lives of the Nine Negro Teeth of George Washington' has earned him both a Nebula and Locus award. He is loosely associated with the quarterly FIYAH: A Magazine of Black Speculative Fiction and an infrequent reviewer at Strange Horizons. He currently resides in New England and ruminates on issues of diversity in speculative fiction.

Reviews

Clever, wickedly fun . . . with an excellent balance of humour and heart. I loved it -- S. A. Chakraborty, author of CITY OF BRASS
A Master of Djinn has all the tricky twists I want in a police procedural and all the djinns, magic and wonder I want from fantasy -- Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of THE CALCULATING STARS
A Master of Djinn is everything you might expect from Clark: cinematic action, a radical reimagining of real history, and magic on every page. I loved it -- Hugo Award winner Alix E. Harrow, author of THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY
With this fantastic feat of postcolonial imagination, Clark reconfigures history with a keen, critical eye toward gender, class and imperialism. Meanwhile, the colourful prose and thorough worldbuilding allow readers to truly enter this imagined world. An epic tale of magic and mystery, this is sure to wow -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
An engaging mystery with a wonderful mix of the fantastic and the mundane, chain-smoking crocodile gods, stuffy marid librarians, and a brilliant heroine with a dashing bowler -- Django Wexler, author of THE THOUSAND NAMES
Clark deftly explores colonialism and the history of Cairo with an immersive setting that acts as another character in this delightful combination of mystery, fantasy and romance -- BOOKLIST (starred review)
