Publisher's Summary

The first short-story collection in the number-one New York Times- best-selling series - including brand-new Harry Dresden short stories!

Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of best-selling 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 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.

    "Great book but don't read it out of order"

    This book is a compilation of Mr Butchers short stories that occur between or in one case before the other various novels if the Dresden Files series I find them a wonderful set of mini adventures into the Dresdenverse, especially the two written from the perspective of Thomas and Murphy.

    "I am so biased."

    So, I love the Dresden Files, at these were some nice little fluffy pieces to just get me through a dry spot of Dresden file stories. None of the stories were extremely important to the story line but they were extremely enjoyable!

    "Excellent series"

    The Dresden Files is an excellent series and should be read from the first book. That being said however this book has some great stories that should not be missed.

    "Great addition to the series"

    Nice vignettes of Dresden and friends. Liked some stories better than others, but all are fun. I held off purchasing this book, but I'm really glad I have it now as part of my collection. I highly recommend it if you are a fan of the series.

    "I enjoyed this much more than I expected."

    I put off listening to Side Jobs until I was really needing a Dresden fix. I expected to not enjoy the short story format but was pleasantly surprised. the deeper looks into some of the other characters and story from their points of view adds a new dimension to the Dresden series. hopefully Jim butcher will continue along that line and develop other storylines in the Dresden universe.
