Still dont know what a Windlass is but so far im enjoying the book a lot. It has a blockbuster feel with a big budget and visual effects. I really enjoy these escape from reality type books, the characters are great so far, the tension is real and the story seems interesting so far, I am a slow...
I'm quite fussy about the fiction I read, and so I don't read as much as I should. I've never read any of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and very little steampunk, even though as an idea it really floats my airship. Mainly because what I have read hasn't had the delight and adventure I've always...
This is the first of The Dresden Files series, featuring a wizard (Harry Dresden) openly practising in present-day Chicago, in an alternative world in which it is accepted (rather reluctantly and with varying degrees of scepticism) that wizardry exists. He makes his living by finding things that...
So, the other day, Jim tweeted that he'd finished the first book in the Cinder Spires series [post on his site about it is here: http://www.jim-butcher.com/posts/2014/jim-finishes-the-aeronauts-windlass].
Book one is titled "The Aeronaut's Windlass".
Cinder Spires is Jim's steampunk series...
Jim did an 'Ask me Anything' on reddit yesterday.
You can find it here:
I am Jim Butcher, author of the Dresden Files, the Codex Alera and the upcoming Cinder Spires! Ask Me Anything! : books
There are spoilers for all the books through "Cold Days" - fair warning!
Skin Game (The Dresden Files #15) will be released on May 27th - and in the best news I've had all week, OrbitUK are publishing it the same day, so we Brit fans of Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden won't have to wait...:D
Skin Game to be released May 27th! | Jim Butcher
I've read all from Butcher and I've been looking for some time now for another writer of the Urban fantasy genre but similar to Butcher in the sense of not romanticizing vampires and werewolves, etc. I mean, come on, most of that kind of books are kind of romance novels with a...
So the other day I came across 'Turn Coat', but I didn't buy it because I didn't know if I should read it because I haven't read any of the previous books. Does reading order matter when it comes to Dresden, or can I read the books on their own/out of order?
Just finished 'Storm Front.' Now I've got a little problem. Every review I've seen about the series, and partially from some of the characters in the book itself, there seems to be an underlining current of chauvinism. I don't understand this thinking.
If a man was willing to hold the door...
The next installment of the Dresden Files comes out on November 29th, and I'm looking forward to it, even if I'm not going to get to read it for a while. I've been consoling myself with the first four chapters that were released as a teaser on Jim Butcher's website.
After the events of Ghost...
Announced at MarsCon 2011 - book 14 will be titled 'Winter Knight' and will release in 2012.
Granted, it's possible the title may change, but since it sounds like it could be a parallel to Summer Knight, I'm guessing not.
We'll have to wait and see. =)
Coming out a little sooner to whet our appetite, and a nice compilation to boot. Easier than trying to buy all the anthologies the stories were released in. October 26th to be exact.
Should be every short story to date:
"Restoration of Faith"
"Something Borrowed" -- from My Big...

Picked it up this morning. Just finished it as I had a busy afternoon. A good read and very involved.
I am not sure how I feel about it, I enjoyed it but gonna have to let it settle a bit before I can really have an opinion.
It definitely went places I didn't expect. I am kind of, "Wow" and...
