Tickets are now available for the Alamo Drafthouse signing/Q&A/screening in Denver, Colorado on June 5th. (Note location change) There are only 76 seats in the auditorium, so act quickly to get a great seat!

Also, it looks like the Joseph Beth event on June 7th will also be ticketed. (The ticket is basically just the cost of the book. There’s no additional charge for a signature.) Secure a prime spot in the signing line by nabbing your ticket soon!

Is Jim not visiting a place near you this time? You can still preorder Brief Cases in hardcover, Kindle, or audio format through our store. Need more convincing? Check out the book’s blurb:

The world of Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard, is rife with intrigue–and creatures of all supernatural stripes. And you’ll make their intimate acquaintance as Harry delves into the dark side of truth, justice, and the American way in this must-have short story collection.

From the Wild West to the bleachers at Wrigley Field, humans, zombies, incubi, and even fey royalty appear; ready to blur the line between friend and foe. In the never-before-published ‘Zoo Day,’ Harry treads new ground as a dad, while fan-favorite characters Molly Carpenter, his onetime apprentice, White Council Warden Anastasia Luccio, and even Bigfoot stalk through the pages of more classic tales.

With twelve stories in all, Brief Cases offers both longtime fans and first-time readers tantalizing glimpses into Harry’s funny, gritty, and unforgettable realm, whetting their appetites for more to come from the wizard with a heart of gold.

Brief Cases hits bookstores everywhere June 5th, 2018.

The Dresden Files is legal!

We don’t have an April Fool’s joke for you this year. Instead, we wanted to celebrate the 18th anniversary of Storm Front‘s publication on April 1st, 2000. That’s right, The Dresden Files is legal! Today, the series can do the following things:

  • Vote (likely for whatever’s the most contrarian position)
  • Buy a lottery ticket (ill-advised with Harry’s luck)
  • Buy cigarettes (though Harry leaves enough things smoking)
  • Get a tattoo (Susan has some great ideas. Molly has some terrible ones.)
  • Donate blood (Harry’s gonna need it)
  • Serve on a jury (Hey, there’s a short story about that!)
  • Buy fireworks (don’t try to match the One Woman Rave)
  • Go to jail (do not collect $200)
  • Have intimate relations with other consenting 18+ year old book series (what’s Anita Blake up to these days?)
  • Take Fool Moon to Rated-R movies.

We’re so grateful to our fans for 18 incredible years, and we look forward to entertaining you for many more.

In case you missed them, here are some of our April Fool’s pranks from the past:
2016 — Dresden Files Special Edition
2015 — Dresden Novels on Hiatus
2014 — Dresden Files coming to Broadway
2012 — Bigfoot Paranormal Romance
2011 — Fool Moon comic reboot and Li’l Harry Adventures
And a bonus: 2014 — Tower of Turtles’ sneak preview of Red Sun

Happy April Fool’s Day!
