Today is Jim’s birthday, but we fans are getting the presents! Side Jobs, the long-awaited Dresden Files short story collection, hits stores today. Grab it in hardcover from our store, or buy the audiobook from Audible.
The first short story collection in the #1 New York Times bestselling series-including a brand-new Harry Dresden novella!
Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher-a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious. Also included is a new, never-before-published novella that takes place after the cliff-hanger ending of the new April 2010 hardcover, Changes. This is a must-have collection for every devoted Harry Dresden fan as well as a perfect introduction for readers ready to meet Chicago’s only professional wizard.
“Witty, fast-moving and well worked-out. Butcher’s yarns go along with the standard supernatural repertory while providing enough twists to keep things fresh and intriguing.” –Kirkus, Starred Review
“Die-hard fans who can’t wait for next year’s Ghost Story will want to rush to the final novella, “Aftermath,” starring Harry’s friend Karrin Murphy, but there are many others here worth reading… Adding value to this title are Butcher’s introductions to each story, filling the reader in on its place in the Dresden-verse time line and offering insight into the author’s intentions.” –Library Journal
Evil Hat, publishers of the Dresden Files RPG, are also giving us reason to celebrate. All this week (ending October 31st–Harry’s birthday), they’re knocking 10% off all DFRPG products on the Evil Hat webstore. Save $9 on the two books and get free shipping when you order them together, or pick up both PDFs for only $36.
