The penultimate issue of “Down Town” hit stores on Wednesday! Snag a copy at your favorite local comics store or one through Dynamite.com. It hasn’t shown up yet on Dynamite Digital, but that’s currently being remedied. Check back soon! The sixth and final issue is slated for July 29th.
Polka Will Never Die!
With Jim’s permission, Pat Rothfuss’s team has created a fantastic “Polka Will Never Die!” t-shirt for the latest Worldbuilders fundraiser! It’s currently available in four color options and in unisex and women’s cuts. Rothfuss advises folks that the grey, brown, and blue options will only be around until JUNE 19TH, so if your wardrobe has a little too much black, act fast! The black version will be sticking around. If you’re in the United States, order here. If you’re international, buy here.
The More You Nerd
Jim recently guested on The More You Nerd podcast. Check out his interview here!
This Memorial Day weekend, Jim will be out at Denver Comic Con signing autographs and discussing his upcoming Cinder Spire series. This time, we’re doing things a bit different. Jim will also be signing autographs at the Gemr booth #341. Gemr is a new social site for collectors to share whatever it is they collect with other like minded folks. You can also buy and sell on the site. They’re a start up based out of New Hampshire and have been live since January. Why should you care about some start-up based out of New Hampshire? For every person that signs up to their site via this link http://gemr.it/1JFmFqu, Gemr is going to donate $2.00 to the Missouri Pit Bull Rescue, a charity that is doing awesome things to rehab abused pit bulls and also educate the public on an often misunderstood breed.
Also, if you want to effectively double the amount that Gemr will be donating on your behalf, all you have to do is upload two additional items to the site. Gemr will be donating $1.00 for each additional item, up to $2.00 extra. That’s an opportunity to donate $4.00 to a charity just by signing up.
If you want to get something signed by Jim, or even just get a picture, swing by the Gemr booth, again booth #341, and sign up. They’ll be handing out tickets to the first 110 people that get there each day looking to get something signed (so Jim can have plenty of time to chat with folks as he’s signing). Here are the times that Jim will be at the booth each day:
- Saturday the 23rd – 5:30pm
- Sunday the 24th – 4:00pm
- Monday the 25th – 1:00pm.
If you want to read more about what the folks at Gemr are going to be doing at the show, you can check out their blog post here.

EuroSteamCon Portugal is hosting a Google Hangout with Jim Butcher this afternoon (May 7th) at 2PM CT/8PM GMT to talk about his new steampunk book, The Aeronaut’s Windlass!
A few details from their announcement:
In this Google Hangout we’ll talk about steampunk and the author’s new book, THE AERONAUT’S WINDLASS, the first in The Cinder Spires series, which will be out on the 29th of September. Everyone is welcome to watch it and you’ll be able to contribute with questions in the chat that will be available then. But we invite you to leave us questions now in the comments, or to send us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org! Although we’re going to focus on this new book, and the genre it belongs to, you can also ask questions about The Dresden Files series (but getting to those will depend on the author’s availability).
This new series is described as “Horatio Hornblower meets The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen—it’s a fantastic, creative new series of airships, privateers, warrior monks, and mad sorcerers. It’s steampunk meets magic with a dose of sci-fi for seasoning.”
