The Strange Brew anthology hits stores today, featuring Jim’s short story “Last Call.” Check it out!

Today’s hottest urban fantasy authors come together in this delicious brew that crackles and boils over with tales of powerful witches and dark magic!
In Charlaine Harris’ “Bacon,” a beautiful vampire joins forces with a witch from an ancient line to find out who killed her beloved husband. In “Seeing Eye” by Patricia Briggs, a blind witch helps sexy werewolf Tom Franklin find his missing brother–and helps him in more ways than either of them ever suspected. And in Jim Butcher’s “Last Call,” wizard Harry Dresden takes on the darkest of dark powers–the ones who dare to mess with this favorite beer.
For anyone who’s ever wondered what lies beyond the limits of reality, who’s imagined the secret spaces where witches wield fearsome magic, come and drink deep. Let yourself fall under the spell of this bewitching collection!

Buy Strange Brew and other anthologies with Dresden Files stories in the Jim-Butcher.com store!

  1. haha. gotta pick this up tomorrow. macs ale is nothing to trifle with

  2. I’m suprised anyone dared to go through Mac to mess with his beer.

  3. Brilliant!!
    The best part is when Dresden hits her with a sign that says “please drink responsibly”. Only in a Butcher story is the PLOT cleverly ironic, not just the dialogue.

  4. This was a fantastic short. It fed my Dresden appetite briefly but I’m hungry for more! Where’s the next book????

  5. Good Butcher story! Also, the remaining stories in the anthology are actually pretty solid this time (as opposed to some of the earlier anthologies). Seems like fewer stories of higher quality – which is certainly the way to go. Makes you feel like you got value for the money.

  6. MESSING WITH HARRY’S BEER!?!? Nothing good can come of this.
    Oh, I so have to rush out and get this book!

  7. I gotta tell ya:
    Messin’ with a mans beer ‘s gotta have consequences. I wouldn’t want to cross Mac let alone Harry and the other clientele.
    Jim Butcher writes the best blue collar fantasy in the business. In a genre littered with boring look alikes. Butcher still maintains a unique and original tale with his masterful story telling.

  8. Now I have two JB books to come up with: Turncoat (when it comes out in paperback) and now the anthology!
    So much of the urban fantasy genre is trite but Butcher (I mean Harry!) always delivers! For me, the most appealing thing about the Dresden Files books are the characters. They are believeable and I either love or hate them–and of course when I pass judgment on a character’s character (LOL), Jim always throws a curve and makes me reconsider. I haven’t read “Turncoat” yet and am already looking forward to the sequel.
