Brief Cases Reviews
I remember a time when these nice short stories use to be fun little reads between the yearly main line books... instead of the only thing published for years.
Me when I found out that a new short stories book was coming out during the downtime before Peace Talks:
[Source]Great news! Jim has finished writing his final story for Brief Cases, the second Dresden Files anthology! This anthology collects all of Jim’s Dresden Files short stories that aren’t in Side Jobs and brings us inside the mind of John Marcone, Anastasia Luccio, Molly Carpenter, Waldo Butters, and even Maggie and Mouse! Fans will be delighted to know that this new story (novella, really) is one of Jim’s longest, eclipsed only by “Aftermath” and neck-and-neck with “Bombshells,” so there’s a lot to look forward to. (Priscilla really likes numbers.)The story is currently in the hands of the betas, but once Jim sends the manuscript off to Penguin, he’ll be able to get back to work on your favorite subject to heck-hound him about, Peace Talks. 😀 Not sure when we’ll get a release date for Brief Cases, as Jim’s editor Anne Sowards is heading off to Comic Con this week and subsequently has a lot on her plate, but hopefully we’ll have something to announce before too long!Looks like we are more likely to get this anthology before Peace Talks; I'm fine either way. Can't wait for some more Harry and Molly!
The name for this anthology actually came from one of Jim's reddit fans. It's supposed to include all the short stories that couldn't be included in Side Jobs due to contractual stuff, as well as the short materials that have been written since then, although I don't know for sure if it will have the Bigfoot trilogy, since that is it's own "book."As for the exclusive story, Jim has said at signings that it's a story about Harry taking Maggie on a trip to the zoo with Mouse, and is written as the same story from all three of their perspectives. And it is awesome!
Woohoo! Confirmed Summer 2018 release date.
Even Hands. I have found before in other places. Johnny Marcone story featuring Justine. "If you are going to steal honey, someone else to kill the bees." Bahaha wasted a perfectly good trap on Mag.Bombshells
