Jim Butcher News

I'm sure half the universe already knows these things, but I'll post it here for the other half. And to be supportive of an author I like both personally and as a reader. Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden (The Dresden Files) books will be coming to a SciFi TV channel near you. The first book in the series (Storm Front) is being loosely adapted to become a tv series. I have reread these books several times now and find something new to laugh out loud about every time. I hope the tv writers/actors, etc. can pull off the subtle, clever humor in the books. Often, what Hollywood thinks is good, isn't. Anyway, yay!! I encourage you all to tune in and support Jim (a delightful fellow) and his paranormal writing.

Also, there's a new conference -- ButcherCon 2006 -- coming this year. Jim is holding a gathering for writers and fans just outside Chicago (the setting for The Dresden Files), October 20-22. Registrations are being taken now. Check out Jim's website for all the latest:

One thing, though. Paul Blackthorne has been cast as Harry, which is fine with me. He mostly looks the part. But am I hallucinating, or does Harry have longer hair in the books? Maybe even a tail? Perhaps that's just wishful thinking on my part. Maybe I'm getting the author mixed up with the character? I definitely look forward to when longer hair comes back into fashion for men.
