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.

Check out more Dresden Files.

    "Good effort"

    Stick with the books. This was ok, but did not meet the high standards I now expect from the series. Still a fun read

    "A MUST after Changes!"

    A great collection of stories and the last brings it all full-circle. James Marsters' performance is genius, masterful and consistent when roles or perspective changes.
    The monster of the week concept is what I loved about comic books and inspires me to write. As the love for these type of stories continue to grow in popularity, were they ever to revisit making The Dresden Files as a series on TV, these are the stories that make great one-hour or two-part episodes.

    "James Marsters outdid himself"

    At four stars this is the lowest I have rated a Dresden novel. I wish I could give James Marsters six stars because of his varied performance during this book

    "More Please"

    It was wonderful getting a view of Harry's world from different characters' perspectives. Series in the first person sometimes miss greater depth due to the narrow focus, so I really hope there will be further "side jobs." As for James Marsters' performance, I am blown away by the breadth of his skills: drama, accents, tones, timing...amazing!

    "Dresden lite"

    Fun fill-in stories. Most not written to butcher's usual high standards, but still fun

    Love Marsters voice and inflections. Nice batch of short stories and where they would fit into the series.
