No real middle ground with the stories in this book. Either I loved them or I didn't even want to finish them. Gonna keep it for the good stories though.

An eclectic set of short stories all concerning djinn, in one way or another. All the stories are well written, a rare event in collections of this nature. If your tastes go to the fantastical, I'd highly recommend this.

Very uneven. A couple of the stories were quite good. The majority left me a bit cold. They tended toward unnecessarily artistic for artistic's sake or simply lacking meat.

I just realized that this book originally came out in 2017, which explains why all the stories are originally published around then -- I'm not sure why I disliked this anthology so much, but it really didn't work for me. The stories veered between dreamy non-linear tales and suddenly explicit moments, with one memorable horror tale. There were a few that I thought were really well done, but on the whole I just found it unappealing and even the big names couldn't rescue it. I think I'm particularly uncomfortable with the unsympathetic portrayal of Islam that resonates throughout.
