Are you selling me on eBay? and other news

Jim has donated an enticing set of Dresden and Alera goodies for a charity event supporting the American Cancer Society! It includes:

  • the audiobooks of Storm Front, Fool Moon, Grave Peril, and Summer Knight, read by James Marsters.
  • autographed copies of Death Masks, Blood Rites, and Dead Beat in paperback
  • autographed copies of the three Codex Alera novels: Furies of Calderon, Academ’s Fury, and Cursor’s Fury
  • an autographed copy of No Regrets by Shannon K. Butcher, Jim’s wife.

Place your bids here! All proceeds from the auction will go to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.
We also now have a release date for My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon, sequel anthology to P.N. Elrod’s My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding. You can read Jim’s Dresden Files short story “Heorot” on December 26, 2007, right in time for those lovely after-Christmas sales! Preorder it on Amazon here, and discuss it on the forums here.
Finally, many of you have written in, pointing us to this article from The Edmonton Journal. It states that Edmonton is slated to be the new home of either The Dresden Files or the Showtime series Masters of Horror, though the decision had not yet been made as to which one. Well, while we’d like to stay optimistic, it looks like we may have a disappointment coming our way. SyFy Portal correspondent Michael Hinman reports that industry rumor points toward Masters of Horror being the likely winner. Hinman assures us that “Nothing is locked into stone yet, and no official announcement is expected until next week,” but it doesn’t look good. Discuss these stories on the forums here.
