BS5-1: “Djinn Jihad” by Jon Towers



As we take a little breather and get ready for the Live Halloween Episode Event and catch up on some other duties around The Library, we dive back into a great encore episode from Season Five (504) with Chapter Three of Jon Tower’s DJinn Jihad as read by Nelson W. Pyles. Stay tuned after the show for an interview with Jon about the story and his writing process and tips.

An action packed chapter converted from Jon Towers Graphic Novel becomes a great short story for us to enjoy. Funny, dark, and scary as hell – shit’s about to get real in the ‘Burgh when a Djinn is used as a weapon.

Be sure to grab Jon’s graphic novel, the D’Jinn Jihad on Amazon.
