Praise

Praise for the Dresden Files

“Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Philip Marlowe.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Fans of Laurell  K. Hamilton and Tanya Huff will love this series.”—Midwest Book Review
 
“Superlative.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“One of the most enjoyable marriages of the fantasy and mystery genres on the shelves.”—Cinescape
 
“Butcher…spins an excellent noirish detective yarn in a well-crafted, supernaturally-charged setting. The supporting cast is again fantastic, and Harry’s wit continues to fly in the face of a peril-fraught plot.”—Booklist (starred review)
 
“What’s not to like about this series?…It takes the best elements of urban fantasy, mixes it with some good old-fashioned noir mystery, tosses in a dash of romance and a lot of high-octane action, shakes, stirs, and serves.”—SF Site
 
“A tricky plot complete with against-the-clock pacing, firefights, explosions, and plenty of magic. Longtime series fans as well as newcomers drawn by the SciFi Channel’s TV series based on the novels should find this supernatural mystery a real winner.”—Library Journal
 
“What would you get if you crossed Spenser with Merlin? Probably you would come up with someone very like Harry Dresden, wizard, tough guy and star of [the Dresden Files].”—The Washington Times

Author Essay

Jim Butcher’s Skin Game is the highly anticipated 15th adventure of Chicago’s only professional wizard, Harry Dresden. Editor Anne Sowards introduces the stellar new addition to the Dresden Files in a note to readers.

Jim told me once that when he’s writing, he’s always thinking about how he can make things even worse for Harry Dresden. To write a great, page-turning story, an author has to throw problems at their characters, and make bad things happen to them. (Admit it, no one wants to read a book about Harry sitting on a beach. Unless the beach is suddenly invaded by hordes of mysterious creatures from the Nevernever.) The fun part for us as readers is seeing how the characters deal with those problems over the course of the book.

Well, hang on to your hats, Dresden Files readers, because in Skin Game, Harry is about to have his worst day ever. You’re going to love it.

– Anne Sowards
