Got some more info for you... For the last years the process after Jim entered the manusscript took about 4 months. Jim has not sent the manusscript to the publisher yet, it is not yet finished. So, I am afraid end of February/early March is even more likely.

Oh well, I would rather have him take his time and deliver the goods than rushing it. Or, as we say in dutch: 'Wat in het vat zit, verzuurt niet.' No idea what an English verb come close though. I guess something like 'forbearance is no acquittance', although that is not really it. It is more that it will be worth the wait in the end.

Okay. Alan's already chosen his title, although I was planning to name him President and Chief Archivist.

Cowboy, you have the great honor of being named Great and Benevolent Progenitor of the Legacy.

red, you are now named Chief of the IOC's Firebird Division, due to your efforts to help all of us ensure that this thread never truly dies, but always rises again.

And though Leah hasn't yet requested a title, I think it goes without saying that she is the Official Fairy Godmother of the Club.

Cool Jim Butcher quotes...

...............
“Paranoid? Probably. But just because
you're paranoid doesn't mean there
isn't an invisible demon about to eat
your face.”

Cool Dresden Short Stories

For my own convenience I've combined the above 6 stories and the excerpt into a single volume which I call Dresden Short Stories so I can read them as a collection on my PW.
