It's good to be back. I missed Harry and Mouse.

Just realized that once I read this one, I can finish Side Jobs with "Aftermath".
Glad to see you back!

The exchange between Harry and the Eebs had me laughing out loud. And I love anything that showcases Mouse in all his furry blue-glowing glory.

Still not a Susan fan, but I've warmed up to her.

From G. Norman Lippert's Blog on Facebook.
Quote:
April 7, 2012
James Potter and the Morrigan Web
You all know I can't stay away from the James Potter world forever. Now that "Ruins of Camelot" is out, I have finally officially returned to the JP series and resumed work on "James Potter and the Morrigan Web".

This book will take us back to Hogwarts, however we will find the school term a rather different experience than ever before. In keeping with the theme of creating parallels between the JP books and their HP counterparts, we will be exploring some additional magical schools (as Ms. Rowling did in "Goblet of Fire").

I won't give too much away, except to say that we should expect to visit some new locations and perhaps even encounter some old familiar faces.

Additionally, we'll be sinking a bit further into the megaplot-- the over-arching story that comprises the entire series. This will involve some serious questions about Petra-- can she really control the evil that lives in her?-- and Judith, the Lady of the Lake-- what is her continuing plan for chaos, and how will it involve her "sister fates", Petra and Izzy?

Of course, we will also be exploring in much more detail the expanding relationships of James, Rose, Ralph, Zane, Scorpius, and many others, including (finally!) Lily, the youngest Potter, who will be attending Hogwarts for the first time.

One last tidbit that might prove interesting: this year will see some much more active involvement from adult Harry himself. We will find that his involvement in the events at the end of "Vault of Destinies" have placed him in a tenuous position with the Ministry, thus forcing him to get rather more creative in his efforts, not only as head Auror, but as husband and father. Harry will prove, methinks, that he is still the stuff of heroes.

If you would like to follow along as the new tale is written, I will be posting page counts, hints and tidbits on the James Potter Series facebook page and the official Hogwarts Next Generation Twitter feed. Sign up, spread the word, and look for the new book this Autumn!

And as always, onward and upward!

Cool The Dresden Files - Cold Days

Two quotes from F* Yeah Dresden Files!

Quote:
Cold Days’ estimated release date

Jim’s deadline for the “Cold Days” manuscript is July 1st. Penguin hasn’t told him when they plan to publish the finished book (revisions, printing, and distribution will take a few months), but I’d imagine fall 2012 is likely. Maybe Octoberish? It’ll all come down to what Penguin’s publishing schedule is like. A lot of art and science go into juggling which book comes out when.

I have no idea where the January 2013 date came from, but I’ve heard nothing from Jim or Penguin to give it any validity. It’s simply too early to know.

Of course, fans will have plenty of new material to get them through the year! In May, June, and August, we’ll get a trilogy of Dresden short stories in which Bigfoot is Harry’s client. There will also be a novella from Molly’s POV, set between “Ghost Story” and “Cold Days,” though its anthology doesn’t have a release date yet.

Jim has also been hard at work on two new series, which he was “auditioning” for Alera’s old slot in his writing schedule. You can read more about them here. They’ve been taking up the lion’s share of his writing time since “Ghost Story,” and I can’t wait to see how they develop! But now, he’s plugging away at “Cold Days” in earnest. You’ll get your book before you know it!



....and one from Amazon.co.uk

Cold Days: A Dresden Files Novel

This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives. Dispatched from and sold by Amazon.co.uk.

I've read through Death Masks so far, and the appropriate short stories from Side Jobs. Took a break for the Mobile Rad book club selection, and plan on continuing on with the series.

Also watched the TV series this weekend. I thought that Fool Moon was one of the better episodes.

Glad to hear that you're continuing.

Concerning the TV series I tend to favor these 3 episodes:

Hair of the Dog
Rules of Engagment
The other Dick


In all 3 cases I think the main reason I favor the above episodes is because of the actresses who are guest starring. Hmmm...and that makes me feel that I need to add Bad Blood to the list as well.

Welcome, The_Book_Doctor! I'm amazed you made it all the way through! This is one heck of a thread!!

I am in the thick of the excitement in Changes. I'll be ready and waiting for Cold Days -- Might even rewatch the series before I'm done!
