I really like Harry (of course), although I find him to be quite frustrating at times. He's so stubborn about some things, and communication is definitely not his strong suit.

Karrin Murphy pisses me off makes me mad. She's just so...so... aarg!

I find "Bob" the disembodied something-thousand year old spirit, to be amusing.

Plus, I'm very curious to see how the whole frienemy thing works out with "Gentleman" Johnny Marcone.

What is confusing? The books? If so, what part? I am currently busy with another reread and will start today on 'Small Favor', one of my favorites.

Cool Interview with Jim Butcher

Quote:
Interview with Jim Butcher
„I was just writing dopey little wizard books.“

Phantastik-Couch.de: I’d like to start by asking you a little bit about yourself. Could you tell us a bit about you? Have you any profession besides writing? I heard something about you working formerly as a door-to-door salesman to pay the rent and a degree in English Literature?

Jim Butcher: I can’t think of any writers who begin their careers as a full-time author. Everyone has to work a day job before they can really get going on their own. Jumping from part-time writing to full-time writing is a major leap in an author’s career.

I started writing in 1991, didn’t make a sale until 1999, and didn’t actually have a book in print until 2000. I couldn’t support myself as a full-time writer until almost 2003. Between 1991 and 2003 I worked as a vacuum cleaner salesman, a clerk in a yogurt store, a secretary at my university, a librarian, a phone center operator, a freelance web designer, and a computer support technician. I was also writing books, going to school for my English degree, and being the main parent at home for my son while my wife worked as an engineer.

Phantastik-Couch.de:
Does it help studying literature when you decide to become an author?

Nice interview, thanks for sharing it Alan! I liked it - particularly the part of the Bob the Skull, the Talking Head, and it's origin. Jim really acted smart in creating this character.
