Tomorrow is the LAST DAY to vote in the Goodreads Choice Awards! Skin Game is a contender for Best Fantasy of 2014. If you haven’t voted in the final round yet, make sure your voice is heard!


A Codex Alera map poster signed by Jim Butcher and artist Priscilla Spencer is up for auction to benefit Worldbuilders, Pat Rothfuss’ annual charity drive for Heifer International! Heifer fights global poverty and hunger by empowering and educating people around the world. Priscilla’s maps for Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles and Myke Cole’s Shadow Ops series are also represented in this batch, plus signed books and artwork and other awesome goodies! Check them out.


Jim was recently on two podcasts, Beyond the Trope and The Once And Future Podcast–this time returning for Anton to interview him!


Some of you have reported hearing conflicting things about the War Cry release date from your local book and comics stores. It appears that with the holiday backlog, some copies did not make it out of the distribution center in time, resulting in delays. Hopefully, everything will sort itself out promptly, and this glitch won’t get in the way of any holiday gifting plans! Apologies for any inconvenience.
