I have to spread around the karma before I can give it to you again, but it will come soon for this. Definitely going on my TBR mountain.

I'm sorry to report this, but the files that Amazon is selling are poorly formatted AZW3s. A Kindle owner would be better off downloading the freebie epubs (the freebie mobi's aren't very good either and who knows how long these freebies will be available) from George Lippert's web site and converting them to mobi's (or AZW3s if that's your preference) with calibre.

I won't either. I didn't wait with Cold Days, and was only slightly annoyed when it went down by $2 a week or so later, but it was well worth the cost.

Mar 28, 2013 - Jim on the Battle College Podcast


Jim was a guest of this week’s Battle College Podcast. Listen to him geek out about LARPing here!

If you’re interested in LARPing, don’t forget about WyrdCon in southern California in September!

Also, for fans in Toronto, don’t miss Jim next weekend at Ad Astra!

Cool Jim Butcher and the Talking Head - April 9, 2009


There is a writing term called "a talking head" which describes a character that the author drops into the story to dispense vital information to the main character at just the right moments. They are usually short lived and seem to come out of no where. (Sci-Fi original moves are very guilty of this). In general we are warned not to use them, but Jim Butcher looked the elements of style right in the face and said, "I'll do whatever I want to do." And he created the most beloved talking head, ever. Hear Jim Butcher explain how he came up with the character Bob. This is at a book signing for his new book, Turn Coat, in Omaha, NE on April 9, 2009.

I've downloaded the EPUB and Mobi versions from the James Potter official site. Going to start on them when I'm done with the book I'm currently on.

Any word on when Morrigan Web will be released?
