Uploaded on Dec 2, 2010

Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher-a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious. Also included is a new, never-before-published novella that takes place after the cliff-hanger ending of the new April 2010 hardcover, Changes. This is a must-have collection for every devoted Harry Dresden fan as well as a perfect introduction for readers ready to meet Chicago's only professional wizard.

I am told that I must spread the reputation points around before I can offer more of them to you, so until then: Thank you!

The marketing department of Jim's publisher (which Jim has no control over ) thinks that the fedora hat indicates a private eye and that a staff indicates a wizard so they instructed the cover artist to include these 2 items on all of the covers.

I don't get how that style hat symbolizes P.I.s anyway - offhand I can't think of a series where it was featured. To me it looks more like maybe the TV version of Zorro...
