Great interview Alan, thanks for posting.

This was really interesting to me. I can't wait for Skin Game ....only 201 days left

Quote:
J: The next novel is called Skin Game. In it, we find out that Mab has various debts which she has incurred over the years and Mab is very keen on getting her debts paid, and when one of the people she owes shows up and asks for a favour, she loans him Harry Dresden in order to help him. So Harry is going to find himself, by command of Queen Mab, assisting Nicodemus Archleon in a heist. They’re going on a bank job, and they’re going to knock over the vault of Hades — the Lord of the Underworld.

Harry is going to be very far out of his element because he’s going to be working with this crew of nasties that Nicodemus has recruited and having to survive that situation, and it’s going to make him look so good to the White Council and everyone else that he’s running around with this crew.

I have no idea, but it certainly feels that way to me as well. Poor guy just can't catch a break. He totally needs a hug.

Well I like it more than the Dresden series to be honest maybe because it is short comparably. For me a few books in the Dresden series started dragging a bit and I was not anticipating a new book till ghost story that has picked things back up for me

I get really sucked in to my books if they are well written. Harry had me hooked from the beginning. I did struggle to like Karen though. She was a real pain those first few books and I almost couldn't read any more because she made me so mad with how she treated him.

Sigh.
Knowing plot points makes it so much harder to wait.
I can't wait for the return of the Nickleheads!


Also great interviews, Alan! Keep 'em coming!

You both really think that? Well I sure don't.

Jim's a novelist who earns his living by writing exciting and suspenseful stories. He accomplishes this by putting his main character into seemingly impossible situations and then somehow getting him out of those situations alive (except, of course, for one notable exception, which was rectified by the end of the next book in the series). This is, IMHO, the main reason why most readers keep coming back for more, many of them, myself included, waiting anxiously for the release of the next book in the series. In interviews he sometimes does say that he hates Harry, but he says this with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek. You see, he's joking!! He loves making people laugh.

Cool Taken, (Alex Verus #3) by Benedict Jacka

You folks got me all stirred up about Alex Verus so I've just begun reading Taken. It's pretty good so far!

There has been a misunderstanding. I know that Jim loves his character Harry. If he didn't he wouldn't have written so many books about him. And as an author it is his job to put his character into impossible situations and then get him out again. It is what makes him such a good writer and why I cannot wait to read Skin Games.

My comment was more about Jim making Harry work with the nickleheads. How sadistic is that? But I am sadistic too because I want to read the book even more now that I know this is the plot line. I do not need any more details than that. December cannot get here fast enough.

Yep, you're correct, I misunderstood. Perhaps Pook didn't?
