Rather thought they had killed the show? (which was a great shame)

Good to hear it is not entirely dead. : )
If you're talking about SyFy's Dresden Files TV show, it's indeed dead (cancelled in 2007), just not forgotten as I along with other die-hards have the DVD set and re-visit it every year (or so).

Quoted from jim-butcher.com
Quote:
Aug 03, 2007 - Dresden Files TV Show Canceled

We finally have our answer, and it’s just as we suspected: the Dresden Files TV show has been canceled. Read more about the decision at TV Guide.com.
While we wish SciFi could have decided differently, we’re still grateful for the twelve great episodes that aired earlier this year. Largely thanks to the TV show, book sales tripled, and no doubt more new fans will continue to discover the series through reruns and the DVDs. Speaking of which, the DVDs will be released this Tuesday! Buy them here on Amazon.com.
Additionally, fans of Paul Blackthorne will be cheered to learn that he has joined the cast of ABC’s Big Shots.

Yup. That was the year I had SyFy TV.

A lucky coincidence indeed.

I really liked that show. Was sorry to see it die. Thanks for the quotation/obituary.

So, how many days till the rumored release date? I know at least one of you is counting. (I would be, but I've had so much going on I can't even keep track of my own to-do list.)

That would be Pookeysgirl who is counting and who posted on 03-28-2013 that 250 days remained till the [rumored] release of Skin Game!!! This was based on Nyssa's original post about finding a release date of December 3rd 2013 in FictFact. This would, I believe, make it 240 days left as of today.

was just bemoaning again the death of the show with someone else tonight randomly.

SyFy Tv lost two nickels there then (and ten combined years of subscriptions) whoops.

I always have enjoyed these trivial facts concerning the TV series. Paul Blackthorne who played Harry Dresden (with an American accent) is British and Terrence Mann, who played Bob, 'Hrothbert of Bainbridge' (with a British accent) is from Kentucky! Also actress Rebecca McFarland played Susan Rodriguez and Valerie Cruz played Murphy!

Cool Apr 04, 2013 - Ad Astra Schedule and Furies of Calderon Limited Edition

Quoted from jim-butcher.com
Quote:
Apr 04, 2013 - Ad Astra Schedule and Furies of Calderon Limited Edition



Subterranean Press has announced limited and lettered editions of Furies of Calderon. The lettered edition has already sold out. If you’re interested, act quickly!

Also, Jim is headed to Toronto for Ad Astra this weekend! Jim is slated for the following panels:

I Love to Hate You
Friday @ 10pm, Franklin
Ed Greenwood (m), Jim Butcher, Fiona Patton, Gregory A. Wilson, Catherine Fitzsimmons
In this panel, examine what is involved in creating a truly great villain. By discussing some examples of favourite well-written villains and what makes them memorable, you will gain a better understanding of how to make your antagonist someone that everyone loves to hate.

Is the Stand-Alone Novel an Endangered Format?
Saturday @ 10am, Berczy A
Julie Czerneda (m), Robert J. Sawyer, Catherine Fitzsimmons, Jim Butcher
More and more books are coming out in series format. While this may be publisher driven, it is just as likely consumer driven. In the face of this trend, it may become impossible to successfully pitch a stand-alone work, and the temptation to force a series may become irresistible. Is there still a place in publishing for a stand-alone book? This panel seeks an answer.

Magic in the Big City
Saturday @ 12pm, Ellsemere West
Lesley Livingston (m), Kelley Armstrong, Jim Butcher
With its banality and cynicism, what does it take to make magic become a reality in a modern city? The challenges to writing about the supernatural in a metropolis are many, but they are not insurmountable. In fact, there are many reasons a city is the ideal setting for magical happenings. Join our panelists and learn how they take magic to the streets.

Demons, Werewolves, and Necromancers
Saturday @ 3pm, Ellsemere East
Douglas Smith (m), Jim Butcher, Timothy Carter, Andrew Pyper, Timothy Liebe
There are new trends forming in the paranormal genre. Traditionally ‘evil’ characters are turned into heroes. Paranormal fiction is expanding and so is the demographic of people who read it. How do you keep these new ideas from becoming cliché? What works and what doesn’t? Attend this panel to plumb the depths – and shallows – of the unknowable.

The Force is With Mickey!
Sunday @ 11am, Ellsemere East
Sebastian Mineau (m), Jim Butcher, Max Turner, Cris Macht, Amy De Ruyte
As a result of the sale of LucasArts to Disney, the future of the Star Wars universe lies in the hands of a mouse. Surely such an infusion of fresh creative juices bodes well for this beloved franchise. In this panel, we’ll discuss what kinds of stories we might expect, and whether the fact that the new movies won’t be controlled by George Lucas is a good thing…or a great thing!
