I pause a third of the way through, and read his previous novelette and novella in the series. (He also has a short story which I haven't read.) It's not essential that you read "A Dead Djinn in Cairo"* but it helped. and it's referred to in this novel. "The Haunting of Tram 105" is not essential at all except for introducing a couple of peripheral characters but is delightful. Then I continued and the novel is brilliant. The Hugo Award went to Arkady Martine's "A Desolation Called Peace," which is also excellent (but in MHO is not quite as good as "A Memory Called Empire", which is one of the best sf novels I've ever read) but this may actually be better. A very good year for SF.

*Which is why this is called the "Dead Djinn series".
