    1. √(2GM/R) is the escape velocity formula (no, I didn't remember, I just looked it up) and substituting earth values will give you about 11.2 km/s. That's how much you need to accelerate your disbelief to when you tackle a Graham Masterton (because suspension does not cover it - you need to have that weightlessness that comes with space flight). When that's done, get ready to ignore a very stale-feeling view on women or two. Done? Ok, now you can enjoy a bit of pulp horror. The Djinn is not the [...]


    2. I flew through another Graham Masterton, I think this was my second this week. I love how short and sweet his books are, and how easily they flow. Although I admit that I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to horror novels. Nothing keeps my interest and attention better than a good old fashioned scary book.By the way, does anyone else besides me picture a slightly younger Jack Klugman as Harry Erskine?To be honest I didn't like The Djinn as much as The Manitou. It took a lot longer to get to [...]


    3. I loved it but then again was there ever the slightest doubt that I wouldn't? - it was a re-read after all! :o) I'd forgotten this was a Harry Erskine tale, gonna have to dig the rest of the series out now.


    4. Worthy sequel of The Manitou. The final chapter is horrifying. More detailed review in Bulgarian here:citadelata/the-djinn/


    5. Další stará kniha vytažená z knihovny a další údiv "jak jsem to sakra kdysi vůbec mohl číst?". I když je to ještě raný Masterton, který ještě není tak čistá kombinace gore s pornem (tohle je víc v Koontzově stylu a sado-maso je až ve finále), tak asi nejlepší na tom je ta obálka (která nemá s knihou samozřejmě nic společného). Ostatní je fakt absolutně průměrný horor osmdesátých let. Na začátku hrdinovi umře děda, který má doma džbán s džinem. T [...]


    6. It's the return of Harry Erskine, first seen in The Manitou. This time Harry's tangling with The Djinn, an Arabian supernatural entity (from which we get the English word "genie"). But this is no lantern-bound wish-granting jokester; it has 40 monstrous manifestations and they're all, well, fatal for humans. At 200 pages, you can read it in one night enjoying pulp horror goodness.Plot ***Spoilers***It begins with the funeral of Harry's godfather, Max Greaves, who committed a horrendous, self-mut [...]


    7. When you pick up a Masterton novel, you really should know that all bets are off!! The Djinn is a tidy little story and Masterton uses his skills to manipulate your imagination into seeing things a hundred times worse than he could ever describe (Although he is pretty damn good at it!) he just kind of, nudges (Perhaps I mean violently shoves?) you in the right direction :0)This was far better than the last one of his books I read 'A Mile Before Morning / Fireflash 5' which suffered mostly from a [...]



    8. As with most of Masterton's novels, The Djinn is like reading an entertaining B horror movie. The characters lack depth, but the story moves at full speed and gives the reader absurdly horrific descriptions. While the premise is about a spirit being trapped within a jar, it's really just another haunted house story as the majority of the story takes place at an old house and the entity in the jar is doing its best to destroy what's left of a family. Unlike most of Masterton's novels, this ends w [...]


    9. I have to be honest, I didn't like it. I felt that the novel just coasted and coasted and coasted. I found the resolution dull. Not to be crude, but it reminded me of being constipated. You struggle and fight and once you are done, you are happy for being done with it.


    10. Έβδομο μυθιστόρημα του Γκράχαμ Μάστερτον που διαβάζω και μάλλον είναι το πιο αδύναμο. Αυτό, όμως, δεν σημαίνει ότι δεν πέρασα καλά ή ότι δεν αξίζει να το διαβάσουν οι φαν του συγγραφέα και γενικά οι τρομολάγνοι που διαβάζουν τέτοιου είδους βιβλία τρόμου. Απλά κατά την άποψή [...]


    11. A quick, decent read. I read the recent edition put out by Telos with new illustrations. If you can get past the sexism (it was put out in '77, not long after Masterton joined Penthouse as an editor) it bobs along nicely until the end when all the women die and all the men survive. Whatever. The most striking thing about this book is that it was by the same guy who had a massive hit with The Manitou, another creature feature that was turned into a B-film with Tony Curtis. THe best thing about it [...]


    12. Remember the days of VHS? When, prior to watching your selected film, you had to sit through an unpredictably lengthy series of trailers for all manner of crappy films? I loved that. I have immensely fond memories of cheap, schlocky horror films all seemingly narrated by the same guttural voice (too few of which I actually managed to see). All cheap thrills and even cheaper effects, and all made delightfully entertaining in a way seemingly forgotten.That’s what I’m reminded of while reading [...]


    13. I thought I remembered reading this book as a teenager, but on rereading I don't know if I would have stuck with it as long as you had to for any action. I was sure I remembered the djinn turning an unfortunate person inside out. Well I must have been mistaken as this did not happen. In any case I found the characters very dated and dull. Given that the book was written in the late 70's, I will forgive them their old fashioned habits.I have never reread a book before and this only makes me feel [...]


    14. Featuring Harry Erskine, the likeable protagonist from THE MANITOU (the events of which, oddly, aren’t mentioned), this one starts well but in the second half the style of writing deteriorates quite considerably. There’s a lot of graphic adult content but at its core the plot is juvenile and very silly, with the characters either not doing what they should (run!) or suddenly making the right move unprompted by any new information or circumstance. It’s fun and fast-paced—and there’s one [...]


    15. Harry Erskine regresa tras su aventura en "Manitú" con su habitual sarcasmo y gusto por las mujeres bonitas. Esta vez se enfrenta a un espíritu encerrado en un jarrón árabe que un padrino suyo, empresario petrolero, había obtenido en uno de sus viajes a oriente medio. Si bien la novela es divertida y se lee en un suspiro, nunca alcanza las cotas de ritmo y locura de su predecesora, aunque el monstruo tiene su gracia y el clímax es lo suficientemente emocionante y violento, algo que ya espe [...]


    16. What a creepy little bookThis was an awesome book. It was pretty scary with a minimum of violence. Well worth the read . I hope that I can continue to find these classics from Graham Masterton. I was fully creeped out , I could not put the book down. I highly recommend this book to all fan's of modern horror!!!!


    17. Another of Masterton's early horror books. It was a good, fast read but not one of his better ones. Readable but not a must read.Back Cover Blurb:It began with a curious investigation of an ancient Arabian jar and the strange legends of sorcery it symbolised. The legend and logic demand that the jar be opened - the secret of the djinn must be exposed to the light of reality.


    18. A fast read. Old school horror with a bit of old-fashioned male chauvinism thrown in. Felt a bit like a short story spun out to novel length. Not as a good as The Manitou, which it reminded me of.


    19. Scary. I don't think I'd like it anymore but when I first read it back in highschool all the blood and gore were good.


    20. A fun quick novel, not really a must read but enjoyable.Harry Erskine is the protagonist, but that is the only real link to The Manitou series.








    21. I've read both this German version and the original version, from the German translation there's a page missing, probably because it was deemed to gory at the time.
