Today marks the release date of “Bombshells,” a novella from Molly Carpenter’s point of view, set between Ghost Story and Cold Days! It’s a part of the anthology Dangerous Women, edited by George R. R. Martin and Garner Dozois. You can pick up a copy in hardcover or Kindle in our store, download the audiobook from Audible, or support your favorite local independent bookstore!

You can also check out a podcast interview with Jim about Ghoul, Goblin, the original graphic novel story released in hardcover last week. It’s streaming on Publishers Weekly.com, or you can download it on iTunes. If you haven’t picked up a copy of Ghoul, Goblin yet, it’s also in our store!

Next, an exciting announcement: With a delightfully spooky 16,666 votes, Cold Days won the 2013 Goodreads Choice Award for Paranormal Fantasy! Thanks so much to all who voted, and congratulations to the other winners!

GOOD GOLLY, MISS MOLLY

However, the holiday season will not be Dresdenless! We’re only two weeks away from the December 3rd release of George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois’ Dangerous Women, which contains the Molly-POV novella “Bombshells.” Pre-order it through the Jim-Butcher.com store!

We don’t have an Audible link yet, but it will also be available in downloadable audiobook format, with Jim’s story narrated by Emily Rankin. You can check out a list of all the performers here. Castle fans will be delighted to hear Stana Katic reading pieces by Joe Abercrombie and S.M. Stirling, and Farscape fans will enjoy Claudia Black performing pieces by Brandon Sanderson and Sam Sykes.
