This is about Jim Butcher, so how about Ferrovax? Spoiler is a quote that really doesn't spoil anything other than knowing when we read about a dragon first and a harmless warning that spoils nothing while it is out of context:

Spoiler:
First appearance In Grave Peril, chapter 26 Bianca's ball:

Quote:
Don't tempt me to show you what I can do by speaking your name and making an effort, mortal. suffice to say that you could not comprehend the kind of power I have at my command. that my true form here would shatter this pathetic gathering of monkey houses and crack the earth upon which I stand. If you gazed upon me with your wizard's sight, you would see something that would awe you, humble you, and quite probably destroy your reason. I am the eldest of my kind, and the strongest. your life is a flickering candle to me, and your civilizations rise and fall like grass in the summer.

Cool What Harry said . . .


“The man once wrote: Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."

Tolkien had that one mostly right. I stepped forward, let the door bang closed, and snarled, "Fuck subtle.”

Cool Quoting Jim . . .


“Mort drove one of those little hybrid cars that, when not running on gasoline, was fueled by idealism. It was made out of crepe paper and duct tape and boasted a computer system that looked like it could have run the NYSE and NORAD, with enough attention left over to play tic-tac-toe. Or possibly Global Thermonuclear War.”
― Jim Butcher, Ghost Story


“Ah!" Journeyman cackled... "Finally! Carefully now, man. If you crack one of my new crystals, I'll hoist you up on a spike!" Grimm cleared his throat calmly. Journeyman squinted over his shoulder. "Ah," he said. "That is, I will report you to... to... the proper person in the chain of command, who will make decisions about discipline that are not mine to make.”
― Jim Butcher, The Aeronaut's Windlass

Cool Jim's Upcoming Works

Quote:
Upcoming Works

We’re frequently asked about when to expect new work from Jim. Here’s what we have on the slate.

THE DRESDEN FILES

Novels:

As of August 2016: Jim is currently writing Peace Talks (#16), so we’re still quite a ways from having a release date. We’ll announce any updates in the news blog.

THE CINDER SPIRES

The Aeronaut’s Windlass was released September 29th, 2015.
Jim will start writing The Olympian Affair (#2) when he finishes Peace Talks.
