Couldn't find anything like this in a search. Mentions in other topics, but no topic of his own.
Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, a detective based in Chicago, and a wizard.
Book 13 is out next week, and well if you haven't been reading there are some major spoilers in Book 12, so get to it.
Just thought we should have a place to talk and discuss each year or so as the books release, and also to encourage others to start fresh with the series.
Interviews with the author, Jim Butcher, had estimated the series to go 20 or so books with a complete overarching story to them. More recent estimates might push that up to 22 or 24 books, as things have taken a little longer to pan out than originally planned.
A friend got me the first three in a set for my birthday last Sept, and after crushing through them in a matter of days I ordered books 4-12 from Amazon, and blazed through those as well. Some of the most entertaining books I've ever read.
Anyway, for those who are caught up like me, and want a peek at Book 13:
Ghost Story, chapters 1-5, previewed on Jim's site.
There's a link in that spoiler tag, hard to see when you highlight the text.
So... let's discuss. Harry. Murphy. Bob. Susan. Marcone. Michael. Elaine. Mab. Thomas. Lara. Molly. Maggie. And of course, Mouse, maybe the greatest dog ever. And Mister the cat.
I suppose anything for 13 is in spoilers, and probably book 12 as well. Don't want to scare off the new readers yet. But we're 10 days out from 13 and I'm jonesing for my Dresden fix.
