P. Djeli Clark returns to the historical fantasy universe of A Dead Djinn in Cairo, with the otherworldly adventure novella The Haunting of Tram Car 015.

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.

Genre: Fantasy

Praise for this book

"Utterly delightful, with a sly wit and a deep and satisfying take on alternate history." - Kate Elliott

"P. Djeli Clark once again blends his brilliant imagination with a thoughtful and complex historical analysis -- not to mention plenty of heart -- to weave a breathtaking tale of cities, spirits, friendship, and society. I love this story so much and couldn't stop reading it, and I can't wait to see what Clark does next!" - Daniel José Older

"The Haunting of Tram Car 015 is a witty, political, magical visit to an alternate 1912 Cairo suffused with richly imagined sights, tastes, and a dash of bureaucracy. Forget the Ministry of Magic; you want to be there when the agents of the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities get to work on a case." - Sarah Pinsker

"Fast-acting and fabulous, Clark's sequel to "A Dead Djinn in Cairo" adds fierce suffragists and squirming smugglers to his alternate Egypt, a place richly infused with alchemical steampunkery. Newly introduced Inspector Hamed and his rookie partner are sharply-focused moving pictures of persistence, doing their utmost to face down a terrifying spectral incursion. With all-encompassing craft, Clark shares the story of an investigation in which his heroes' efforts and Cairo's cosmopolitan nature work in sync to save the day." - Nisi Shawl

"Bleeds with style, elaborate language, and unforgettable characters." - Daniel H Wilson
