The secret is out — Jim Butcher will be the author guest of honor at GenCon 2014! You can see GenCon’s announcement on their website.

Like they say over there:

Jim will host and participate in seminars and panels through the Writer’s Symposium program. He will also participate in some book signings in the Authors’ Avenue area of the Exhibit Hall. More information about these exciting events will be added here as it becomes available, be sure to check the online event listing for details when event registration opens.

Are you going to GenCon? Share your excitement over on our forums!

While you’re there make sure to drop by the Indie Press Revolution booth, where Dresden Files RPG publisher Evil Hat‘s games (as well as those of many other publishers) will be on display and available for sale. (And while we’re on that topic, check out Evil Hat’s current card game kickstarter campaign, Zeppelin Attack!, which is already funded and running through March 1st!)

Hope to see you there. It’s looking like it’ll be the best GenCon yet. (How could it not — they’ll have Jim this time!)

We are pleased to present you with an extended preview of The Dresden Files: Ghoul Goblin, here now with the first 13 story and art pages!

This all new original story takes place in the official continuity of the Dresden Files novels, subsequent to the events in Fool Moon, and is co-written by Jim Butcher and Mark Powers, with art by Joe Cooper.

In Ghoul Goblin, Harry heads to a small, isolated Missouri town terrorized by monsters out of the Nevernever. The singularly unfortunate Talbot family has suffered a curse that has decimated their number for generations, and only our hero can save them… that is, if he can survive hostile lawmen, the dark secrets of townsfolk, an ancient guardian spirit, and two deadly carnivores! Can Dresden cleanse the Talbot bloodline of its curse without a blood sacrifice of his own?

This 152-page hardcover graphic novel will be in stores everywhere Nov 26th.

Jim encourages you to go and order it from your favorite bookstore!
ISBN-13: 978-1-60690-438-1

Harry Connolly should be well-known to Jim fans: Jim said this about Harry’s novel, Child of Fire:

“[Child of Fire] is excellent reading and has a lot of things I love in a book: a truly dark and sinister world, delicious tension and suspense, violence so gritty you’ll get something in your eye just reading it, and a gorgeously flawed protagonist. Take this one to the checkout counter. Seriously.”

For the past month, Harry has been running a Kickstarter to self-publish his epic fantasy trilogy The Great Way. And it’s been going great! The project funded quickly, and several stretch goals have been unlocked, including additional novels outside of the trilogy. The clock is running down, though: there’s less than 60 hours left before the opportunity to buy into the Kickstarter evaporates! (Don’t worry if you can’t, though: the books will be available for sale as e-books after they’re published.)

One of the stretch goals unlocked will be of particular interest to urban fantasy fans: backers will also get A KEY, AN EGG, AN UNFORTUNATE REMARK, an urban fantasy novel with a pacifist protagonist in her mid-sixties. The book is sort of like The Dresden Files if Harry Dresden was actually a cross between Auntie Mame and Gandalf. You can read more about that novel here.

At any rate, we hope you’ll give Harry’s kickstarter a look by or before the weekend. He’s a great author with a unique voice that deserves to find a wider audience. Here’s the project’s video to give you an idea of what it’s all about!
