Storm Front was first published April 1st, 2000, which makes this year The Dresden Files’ 20th anniversary! To honor that milestone and to thank the phenomenal fans who got us there, we will be posting “Dresden Drops” on jim-butcher.com every Tuesday this year. Dresden Drops will feature never-before-seen artwork, microfiction, interviews, sample chapters for Peace Talks, contests, and other tasty tidbits throughout 2020.
We’re also recruiting some of your favorite geeky and literary websites to help us celebrate the series with readalongs, giveaways, and more, and we’ll be announcing the first tie-in event later this week. Be sure to join our new mailing list and follow @jimbutchernews on twitter, so you don’t miss a moment in this fuego-licious fiesta of fansquee.
Hang on tight, because this year is going to be lit! Because it’s on fire. And it is definitely Harry’s fault.
