Waiting for Taken to arrive at the library for me, but it's taking way too long. Can't wait for Chosen to come out -- on August 27, 2013.

Hmm, maybe we should count down for that as well?

I've read all 4 Niki Heat books, the first was pretty good and the next 3 were even better. I've read the 1st of the Derrick Storm books and it was also pretty good. The one announced in my post is the 4th book. I plan on reading the rest relatively soon.

Got a little lost in this thread, but I just finished Book 3 (Grave Peril). Is there a timeline somewhere that perhaps shows how much time passes from book to book? I know, I could probably plot it myself, but no sense reinventing the wheel if a fan has already done it. Starting Book 4 tomorrow.

There's a fairly extensive thread concerning Dresden timelines on jimbutcheronline.com and you can find that thread here.

Yeah...

I was quoting pookeysgirl, who complained about my stealing the countdown, and FLAUNTING that fact proudly. Because I will keep doing so for as long as she slacks off.

Sorry I'm late, the Sabbath just ended about 30 minutes ago...

Pookeysgirl, you are STILL slacking, so I will doubtless end up monopolizing the countdown. Reply really quickly if you wish to (TRY to) defend your position.

And Chosen will be out in

Taken was a really superb read that was quite exciting and also contained multiple unexpected plot twists and surprises.

I'll be anxiously looking forward to Chosen which will be available the last week of August.

Cool Ghoul, Goblin: Issue 4 is Here!

Quoted from jim-butcher.com

Quote:
May 16, 2013 - Ghoul, Goblin: Issue 4 is Here!

Issue #4 of the original Dresden Files graphic novel, GHOUL GOBLIN, came out last week.

Quote:
A small, isolated Midwestern town is being terrorized by a pair of the Nevernever’s most vile creatures, who’vemanaged to decimate the star-crossed Talbot family. Harry’s sworn to protect the survivors and end the curse—something that can only be accomplished if he can convince them to take refuge in what amounts to a supernatural fortress. And if the ancient guardian spirit he’s summoned doesn’t kill him first…and if the local cops don’t toss him into a jail cell…
JIM BUTCHER’S DRESDEN FILES: GHOUL GOBLIN #4 (OF 6) • Written by Jim Butcher and Mark Powers • Art by Joseph Cooper • Cover by Ardian Syaf

Available now at Comixology and comic stores everywhere!

I finally ...

1. ... purchased the first book from Codex Alera, but have no idea when I'm going to read it. RL has sucked the reading time right out of me.

2. ... found a store selling the Dresden Files graphic novels. I wanted to see them in person. They were very pricy, though.

Am I dense this morning? My poor overtaxed brain can't seem to attach a meaning to 'RL'?!?

I remember reading Furies of Calderon after pretty much forcing myself to start reading it. When I was through reading it I then read the remaining five books back to back and was sorry that it was over when I was done. Who knew?!

Me and graphic novels don't play well together at all, but in the past I have checked some out and found Comixology to be economical. Or you could try Comic Shop Locator.

Are the Dresden comics any good, or are they just garbage designed to prey on our need to buy All Things Dresden?


BTW I finally got -- and finished -- Taken (Alex Verus, Book 3) and it was as good as I hoped.

Spoiler:
Some real crazy stuff going on there. Poor guy though -- I think Benedict must hate Alex as much as Jim hates Harry. Not everyone finds vampire(like beings) after they went extinct.

And if Onyx turns out to STILL be alive I will scream.


Can't wait for Book 4 to come out.
