Cool stuff...Skin Game (The Dresden Files #15)

Indeed, the 4$ offer seems to have been a special price for some time that I stumbled on out of sheer luck, now the price has increased quite a bit in Germany as well.

BUT ... the "Midnight Riot" edition (US title of "Rivers of London") seems to be more sensibly priced in the Kindle edition.

Best regards,

It's $7.99 at Amazon U.S.A. and is under the title, Midnight Riot.

On another note, has anybody seen the listing for Skin Game (The Dresden Files #15) at ? Here's the blurb that goes with it:

Expected publication: December 3rd 2013 by Roc.
hmmm...

In the partial quote at the top of this post the book title, Skin Game, is underlined, that is a link, mouse-click it, you're there.

If I was wrong about what you were asking, then I apologize and leave the following answer; No, that entry was not posted by a publisher. It was likely posted by a user of GoodReads.

I started reading Fated by Benedict Jacka. I am only on chapter 3 but I am loving it so far.

My favourite part so far is:

Spoiler:
If there's one thing all diviners share, it's curiosity. We really can't help it; it's just part of who we are. (here is the best part) If you dug a tunnel somewhere in the wilderness a thousand miles from anywhere and hung a sign on it saying, Warning, this leads to the Temple of Horrendous Doom. Do not enter, ever. No, not even then, you'd get back from lunch to find a diviner already inside and two more about to go in.


I can picture this so clearly in my mind. I love it when an author can do that.

Indeed, I also really, really liked "Fated".

And "Cursed".

And ... "Taken" ... as far as I am with it.

Best regards,

PainKiller Jane .... yeah there was a Syfy channel mega-hit...

I can't believe they cancelled Dresden Files for that dreck, but then I hardly understand anything Syfy does.

Also, I read the sample of Fated. It was excellent. I'll be picking up the series on payday

That's a good one all right. And yes, he's certainly a very skilled writer.

Cool Dresden Dice Announced & RPG debuts on Kindle and Nook

Quoted from jim-butcher.com

Quote:
Apr 23, 2013 - Dresden Dice Announced & RPG debuts on Kindle and Nook

The folks over at Evil Hat Productions, publishers of the award-winning Dresden Files Roleplaying Game, are running a Kickstarter campaign to produce a line of “Fate Dice” (also known as Fudge Dice) for use with the Dresden Files RPG as well as other games using the Fate system. And just last night, they announced the addition of a Dresden Files themed Winter Knight dice set! We’re sharing an image of the four sets they’ve announced so far at the bottom of this post, and you can learn more at the project page.

But that’s not all that’s coming out from the guys at Evil Hat. They’ve just released the Kindle (.mobi) and Nook (.epub) friendly formats of the Dresden Files RPG as well, and at a low price too so you can get a copy that works on your tablet-of-choice. You can pick both volumes in ebook formats at their web-store, on DriveThruRPG, at Amazon, or at Barnes & Noble.

Good gaming, folks!

It's pretty much impossible to figure out the post (there are almost 2000 posts in this thread) to which you are responding unless you quote it (like I just did yours).

To answer your question, AAAA Wizardry is published by Evil Hat Productions in Dresden Files RPG: Our World.
