We had a real good run there for a while. Check this out:
He released one book a year for 15 years. (Well, technically there was a two year gap between #14 and #15 but there were two books released in the same year in 2001 so the average books per year for the first fifteen was: One.) The books are really, really enjoyable and fun reads. (Well, the first book is good. The second book is pretty good. The third book is kinda okay. But with the fourth book on, the author hits the “awesome” button and doesn’t stop pushing it.)
We got into this a while back as well, so I won’t rehash stuff I’ve said already (as much as I love to do that). I’ll just say that I recommend the books and, after you plow through the first one, you’re going to be delighted that there will be 14 *MORE* waiting for you.
But then, after those books, you will ask “When is the next one coming out?”
But there is good news. A collection of short stories (short stories that are set between the books in the series) has recently been released (and I didn’t know about it! So it’s new and fresh for me too!) and it came out, looks like, June of this year. The book is called “Brief Cases” and if you’re thirsty for the next Dresden book (as *I* am), you need to pick it up.
I’m not recommending it, as I can’t, as I just learned about it moments after deciding “I should check in on The Dresden Files and see what’s happening”. That said, I will be getting it because *I* am thirsty for the next Dresden book and this is the only game in town. (If you absolutely positively need something RIGHT FREAKING NOW, you can check out Butcher’s AMA from June.)
But I did come across that the next book in the series has been named (though a release date hasn’t been given out yet).
The name of the next book is Peace Talks.
Needless to say: I’m there.
So… what are you reading and or watching?
