Jim Butcher — and Cold Days — is featured on the latest episode of Sword & Laser, on the Felicia Day/Wil Wheaton driven Geek & Sundry YouTube channel. Check it out!
Evil Hat, the game publisher behind the Dresden Files RPG, is running a kickstarter campaign to “kick off” their push into doing tie-in fiction with their other game lines. The first is a trilogy set in their Spirit of the Century pulp universe. Check out the kickstarter video here:

We got our information about the Tyson’s Corner signing third-hand, and unfortunately the info suffered from a bit of a “game of telephone” effect. What we posted earlier was not accurate. Here’s a direct quote from Barnes & Noble as to the rules for the Tyson’s Corner, VA signing today:
All customers must have a receipt for Ghost Story from any Barnes & Noble or bn.com and they are welcome to have any of Jim’s other titles autographed. As the guidelines have been communicated for almost two months now to many, many customers, our team will continue to relay the original message to callers (we are only a three days out from the event now), but we will most certainly take care any of those attendees who bring additional backlist.
The main change here is that your receipt must be for Ghost Story from any B&N store (online or physical). You’re welcome to bring your back-list Jim Butcher titles (including the Dresden Files RPG — Fred Hicks will be there as well) to be signed alongside.
There’s been some confusion about the rules as laid down by Barnes & Noble for Jim’s signing tour. Turns out the confusion is because there are different rules for each location! We just got the update from Jim’s publicity team, who are fresh to this discovery as well (too late to give the word about the Atlanta signing — our apologies).
Here’s what we know about this coming week:
8/1, McLean, VA at Tyson’s Corner: A recent B&N receipt for any of Jim Butcher’s books is required to join the signing line. Passes handed out at 5pm.
8/2, NYC, NY at Tribeca: The first 200 customers to buy GHOST STORY at the store get guaranteed seating, all others are standing room. Passes handed out at 10am.
