Cool release date of 01/16/14 - not really!

That's what amazon.co.uk (Britain) has it dated as (it's a pre-order), but amazon.com (USA) hasn't even got it listed yet. There's been no publisher announcement, no word on jim-butcher.com and no cover has surfaced anywhere.

All that to me adds up to there being no chance at all that it's coming out on Dec 3. I'm pretty sure we'll see a real date at amazon well in advance of it being released, and we're too close to Dec 3 for that to be realistic IMHO. Personally, if I had to make a guess from what we can see so far, I'd say Feb or Mar as the earliest we're likely to see it.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict an August release of either the 5th or the 12th.

I think Lea is saying that reality has no place in this count down.

Yes. And I concur. I much prefer irrational optimism.

So... I don't post much here, but I've been following along and plodding along with my first pass through The Dresden Files.

Since the first of September, I've finished White Night, Small Favor and Turn Coat. As has been said earlier in the thread, the writing is getting better and better and Mr. Butcher seems to always leave you wanting to get on to the next story. Now I'm worried about how things will change for Thomas.

I've got Changes loaded up, but it's probably going to be a couple weeks before I get to it. A few more books in line in front of it.

Tomorrow I will hopefully finish Dead Beat and then on to the next. At this rate I will finish my reread before the next installment come out. Then again. who knows when that will be.

Cool Silly Symphony - The Skeleton Dance - A Halloween Treat

Released in 1929. This was the first and probably the greatest Silly Symphony. Something extra for All Hallows Eve Week. Enjoy.

And for all you party poopers, worst case scenario is you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Changes is great. It is a turning point in many ways. It lives up to its name and really delivers. It closes some arc, but generates and teases more. Knowing what it is in it, I would not be able to wait for a few weeks to pick it up when it is in line.

I'm doing my 4th (IIRC) read-through of the series and right now I'm just about 2/3 of the way through Changes. I wonder how many folks other than we 3 might also be re-reading the series in preperation for the release of Skin Game. Myself, I don't seem to ever get tired of re-reading it. Enjoy!

I'm actually doing a "Re-listen", as opposed to a "Re-read". Listening to Ghost Story right now which is rather timely and also rather Jarring as James Marsters didn't narrarate this one. Not that the gentleman who did this one is doing a bad job, rather I've just gotten so used to Mr. Marsters reading the story that it's strange to hear another voice in the role.

I can't imagine listening to Dresden audiobooks without Marster's voice. I stopped getting the audiobooks when I found out that he wasn't doing Ghost Story.
Even when I reread the books, it's Marster's voice in my head as Harry. (And Bob, especially.)
Did he come back for Cold Days, do you know offhand?
