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.

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.
A great side exploration of the dresden universe.
Loved every minute of it.
I need to write seven more words.
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.
This anthology of short stories is a wonderful addition to the series and i am glad i waited to listen to it after book 12 and before thirteen whic i am starting as soon as i get done typing this review. Now on to thirteen!!!
I love how the actions in these shorts tie into the Dresden storyline. They are part of the chain of events that builds this awesome series.
Next and last book I have from Audible leaves me empty and yearning for more... Don't leave us now Harry... The world has to few real role models....
Gives back stories to peripheral characters and helps to understand events in the main books. all the while being entertaining,funny, serious and heart wrenching at the same time.
Charming stories that gave great exposure for characters that didn't get the limelight in the full novels. Having read all of Butcher's full novels I had a frame of reference for what was going on and before each story he states when on the timeline it occurs, but after SO many novels it was still a little hard to remember when exactly between book 10 & 11 was.
