I didn't like this as much as the regular novels. It was just hard for me to get into most of the stories. Overall I still enjoyed it. Reading about Harry is always fun. ( )

I had read many of the short stories contained inside. It was nice to read Jim's thoughts on them. Liked the new short story at the end with Murphy that happens a few hours after Changes. ( )

A mixed bag of "intertestamental" short stories. Some are early stories, where you can see he's finding himself. A couple are very good. Nice end to the book with the story about what happens in light of the aftermath of Changes. ( )

Not a bad book in the series! ( )

The conversation with Uriel in The Warrior brought a tear to my eye. Butcher has a deft touch for the telling item. ( )

First words
I struggled to hold on to the yowling child while fumbling a quarter into the pay phone and jamming down the buttons to dial Nick's mobile.
If knowledge is power, then it follows that ignorance is weakness.
It was always good to get as much thinking done as you could, before the actual mind-boggling crisis came down. That way, when it got there and you only had half a second to decide what to do before something from beyond the borders of sanity started ripping at your soul, you could skip the preliminaries and go straight to the mistake.

Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher -- a compendium of cases that Harry Dresden 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 the new April 2010 hardcover, Changes.… (more)
