I think so. He deserves it too, very approachable man, and helpful to the new writer. Doesn't hurt that his books are a lot of fun

Confirmed: Jim Butcher no1 on NY Times Bestseller list http://whatho.satpathy.org/2009/04/2...t-seller-list/

I'm a huge fan, bought the new one the morning it came out. (in ebook, of course!). I have the complete collection besides the last two in hardback. (omnibus editions via Mystery Guild, but they're hardback!).
I really enjoy Jim's website, and am looking forward to watching this interview.

not only do i enjoy his writing, but i like what he's had to say in the interview about ebook readers:

As far as protection of the electronic rights goes, my books have been readily available for illegal download on various file-sharing programs since 2000. They’re easy to steal, and have been for years. I don’t see that I’ve been horribly wounded by that fact–I’ve chosen to regard it as a PR investment. Sure, there are a lot of folks who might grab the pirated copy online, but I imagine that most of them are folks who would have trouble affording a book in any case. And if a few of them enjoy my work enough to then go out and grab physical copies to become regular readers, I count it as a win.

I’m not bothered by E-readers at all. I think that, by and large, anyone who can afford an E-reader probably isn’t going to have an issue with paying an author for his work.
a realistic guy who makes me glad i re-bought all his books for my cybook. this is from the interview still going on here http://bittenbybooks.com/?p=6529
