And I'm sure it will be a most gratifying wait as well.

Cool Jim Butcher quotes...

Twin trails of saliva drooled from
the corners of its mouth, leaving
black streaks to down past its
chin. There wasn’t a hair to be
seen on its head.

“Wizard,” it said, and its voice
was the same as had come
through the glossy stone. “Your
life need not end this day.
Surrender and I will spare your
companions.”

I could hear Mac reloading behind
me. Thomas had his gun in his
hand, behind his back, and was
prowling silently around the room
to force Sharkface to turn to keep
an eye on him.

Except it didn’t have eyes.
Whatever this thing was using to
keep track of us, I had a feeling
that just standing in an
inconvenient spot wasn’t going to
net us much of an advantage.

“Surrender,” I said, as though
trying to place where I’d heard
the word before. “Yeah, um. I’m
not so sure I want any
surrenders today. There was a
sale on surrenders last week, and
I missed it, but I don’t want to
rush out and buy another one at
the regular price right away. I’m
afraid the sale might come back a
week later, and then, I mean,
come on. How stupid would I feel
then?”

I have to say that on occasion Butcher comes across as a bit cheeky!

I had such a hard time picturing Sharkface without cracking up:
Quote:
it appeared like a giant rag ball similar to what is used in a carwash
Kind of hard to take it seriously during that first encounter after reading that.

Even though the countdown was (way) off, I was still hoping to have it by Christmas.

I would love to have it before Christmas, but unfortunately logic dictates that it will probably be February... At least it gives me additional time for reread...

I didn’t have any money or ID.
I didn’t have a credit card. Hell,
I didn’t have a business card.

What would it say? “Harry Dresden,
Winter Knight, Targets Slain, No
Barbecues, Waterslides, or
Fireworks Displays.”

Cool News Roundup

Quoted from jim-butcher.com
Quote:
Nov 18, 2013 - News Roundup



There’s a lot of awesomeness in the works! Let’s jump right in:

THE GAME IS AFOOT!

Jim has finished writing Skin Game! There are still some revisions to process, but it’s on its way toward print. Hopefully, we should have a release date to announce soon. Join our mailing list and be among the first to know!

GOOD GOLLY, MISS MOLLY

However, the holiday season will not be Dresdenless! We’re only two weeks away from the December 3rd release of George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois’ Dangerous Women, which contains the Molly-POV novella “Bombshells.” Pre-order it through the Jim-Butcher.com store!

We don’t have an Audible link yet, but it will also be available in downloadable audiobook format, with Jim’s story narrated by Emily Rankin. You can check out a list of all the performers here. Castle fans will be delighted to hear Stana Katic reading pieces by Joe Abercrombie and S.M. Stirling, and Farscape fans will enjoy Claudia Black performing pieces by Brandon Sanderson and Sam Sykes.

THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

We told you last week that Cold Days made the Opening Round in the Goodreads Choice Awards. Today, we see that it’s made it into the Final Round! There are a bunch of fantastic authors represented in a wide variety of categories, and the contest ends November 25th, so don’t forget to for your favorites!

LET’S ROLL

We neglected to mention here that the Dresden Files: Winter Knight Fate Dice went on sale a few months back. Pick up a set at your favorite local game store or online through the Evil Hat webstore.

The water near me stirred and
then a Sharkface rose up out of
it as if on an elevator, slow, his
mouth tilted up into a small
smile. He stood there on the
water perhaps five feet away
from me. His eyeless face
looked smug.

“Warden,” he said.

“Asshat,” I replied.
