  1. Dear Mr. Butcher, I am Serbian translator of your novels, and I must say that I was a rabid fan of Dresden Files years before I even dreamed of translating Storm Front and Fool Moon. I can hardly wait for April 7th.

  2. I can’t decide if it is really nice of Jim Butcher to post excerpts from his books or if it is really mean to torture us by making us want more! After reading the first two chapters I can’t wait until Turn Coat comes out! I’ll have to solace myself by re-reading the other Dresden novels. I just can’t get enough of Harry Dresden (or the Codex Alera series either)!

  3. man Butcher you sher can start a story out. its like a bigs hary hand that reaches out of dark and grabbs you by the “!@*&!” if you know what i mean.

  4. Finally something to read since Princeps Furies. Can’t wait to get back to Dresden Files.

  5. I came (very) late to the Dresden-verse and had catch-up to do – read all 10 novels back to back in a week ..then…as I adore James Marsters I got the audio books. James has such an incredible voice and his performance is fantastic – kudos to him! So until now I haven’t really had to wait. But damn you Mr Butcher..you have made me an addict and I now need regular Dresden Files fixes! The sample chapters are keeping me sane and I can’t wait for Turn Coat to be released! OH NO! It has a later release date in the UK aargh!!! Patience is a virtue so I have been told..

  6. damn. can’t you just say to hell with publisher and release it earlier. Im getting frustrated of no new dresden novel (i got Princep’s Fury for christmas).
    THis one, by the sample chapters looks like it’ll involve some very funny remarks and i’ll have to steal the damn book from my mom when she buys it. (im only 11).

  7. Jim, reading your books got me through a month in the hospital (with no food). You’re the dude and i cant wait tor the next one!

  8. Garrett — if you’re only eleven, then now’s a good time to start watchin’ that mouth. You’ll notice Harry only curses was the situation calls for it! 🙂


  10. Waaaahhhhhh! Why oh why did I start reading the sample chapters!!!
    Geez, I want more!!!! I’m at work trying not to grit my teeth and scream in frustration!! Or is it sheer longing? Sigh! See you in Ann Arbor Jim!

  11. Thanks Jim! This looks like yet another terrific read!
    While we are all impatiently waiting for this next Dresden adventure, I’d suggest checking out the Felix Castor series by Mike Carey. Think of him as an English version of Harry, slightly rougher around the edges and a reluctant exorcist. It’s not the Dresden Files, but it just may get you through the waiting. 🙂
    U.S. titles include:
    The Devil You Know
    Vicious Circle

  12. I just cannot wait for Turncoat to come out. My husband and I race to see who reads the chapters here first. Luckily for me he is on midnight turn most of the time so I get to.
    Turncoat comes out four days before my birthday, guess what I am getting 🙂 Last year my husband got me an authographed copy of Small Favor.
    I guess if I want my “Dresden fix” I will just have to reread the other books again for the fourth time in the last year, 🙂 not a bad thing.

  13. Amazing….I can’t wait to get this at the Midnight release in Oakbrook, IL. Also, can’t wait to meet you Jim. I’m continuously amazed and inspired by your writings, both Dresden and Alera. Keep them coming!

  14. I should not have read the sample chapters- now I can not wait for the book and I have 3 weeks ahhhhhh

  15. Woohoo! Like every good dealer, the first hit is free… Well OK,I guess the first 5 are free! Now comes the tedium of w..a..i..t..i..n..g.. for the delivery of the rest of this much anticipated literary addiction!

  16. Need more, need more… *looks at the date* Argh, annoying that Australia will get the book later… if only I lived in America, I’d walk to the signing if I had to! From those 5 chapters I’m hooked and desperate for more.
