Cool Name of the Wind Playing Cards Kickstarter!

Quoted from jim-butcher.com
Quote:
Jun 04, 2013 - Crossing the Streams

Fans of Jim Butcher and Pat Rothfuss will cackle with delight at the latest stretch goal in the Name of the Wind Playing Cards Kickstarter! At $150K (they just passed $130K), Jim will model for artist Shane Tyree as Kvothe’s nemesis, the arrogant, vindictive Ambrose Jaxis. Order a card set, an art print, poker chips, or more and help push Pat, Jim, and Albino Dragon publishing towards this hilarious and magnificently evil goal!

Cool Pat Rothfuss: The Name of the Wind Kickstarter

Jim will model for artist Shane Tyree as Kvothe’s nemesis, the arrogant, vindictive Ambrose Jaxis.



May 8, 2013

Pat Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles) and Shane Tyree (Albino Dragon Games) chat about some of the visual elements from The Name of the Wind. About how to arrive at good visual representations of literary work and about how ugly lutes are.
The video was broken in parts from the hangout, so we apologize for the hiccups.

Cool Kickstarter Goal Achieved and Another Con Appearance Announced!

Quoted from jim-butcher.com

Quote:
Jun 04, 2013 - Kickstarter Goal Achieved and Another Con Appearance Announced!

Last night, we let you know about Pat Rothfuss and Albino Dragon’s Name of the Wind playing card deck Kickstarter, which featured Jim Butcher modeling as the villainous Ambrose Jakis as their $150K stretch goal. When we posted just before midnight PST, they had about $20K to go. Twelve hours later, they just passed $175! Jim had better practice his Blue Steel and study up on being really, really, really ridiculously good looking, because he’s going to be a model!

Also, we have another con appearance to announce. Fans in and around Baltimore can meet Jim at FaerieCon East, November 8th-10th.

Quote:
Now in it’s sixth year, FaerieCon East remains the largest gathering of faerie artists and authors in the world. And this year, we are making a number of changes and and additions to make your FaerieCon experience even more fun, informative and inspiring. The FaerieCon universe continues to expand to embrace fantasy, steampunk, goth, metaphysics and many other genres who enjoy sharing their diverse interests and passions throughout the weekend.
Learn more about the event at FaerieCon.com.

You can see a full list of Jim’s 2013 convention appearances here. Well, full list minus one. We’re just waiting on the go-ahead for one more convention before posting about it.

I'm going to finish "Cold days" in the next day or so, so I have that wait for the next book.

Still it's been a great ride reading all the books..

But what to read next is the question.. hmmm.
I don't really want to read an incomplete series this time. There's so many book series I've finished that were incomplete, too much to keep track of.

You sure do write succinct posts.

To the best of my knowledge there are 2 versions of the TV adaptation of Storm Front. Episode 8 (titled Storm Front and the only series episode that attempts to adapt one of the actual novels), which is a 42 minute episode and is contained on the series DVD set. It is actually a re-edited version of the originally unaired pilot (titled The Dresden Files), which is 84 minutes long. I believe that the copies of the pilot that are on the internet were recorded from a later broadcast of the [previously] unaired pilot.

What's the the recurring spam?

Yes, Skin Game has to do with this thread, but the other book has nothing to do with it. Please don't keep counting down every day or even every other day.

If you want to do a count that changes, put it in your signature and just edit the signature. That would not be spam and that would work to get the message out in every message you've posted.

Think of this as a clubhouse for Dresden fans. As such, people will discuss other things they enjoy reading while waiting for something Dresden-y to talk about. This is not new in this thread, and I don't believe it should be discouraged. You obviously feel otherwise.

TL;dr - Really???
