[Book Review] Brief Cases

Brief Cases (Dresden Files) / Jim Butcher


So.  Imma make a recommendation here.  Stop reading my review, and just go pre-order the book, or place a hold at your library.

Go on, I'm not going anywhere.

The Dresden Files cast and setting has expanded a lot since the first few novels, and the first few collections of stories.  In Brief Cases we get stories of Dresden's adventures and debacles, but there is also so much more, and the additional voices are fantastic.

Things kick off with a weird West story featuring Luccio and an introduction about how Butcher has an idea for a full series based on this short story.  Let me just say I'm so ready for this.

The stories in this collection span the range from fun to touching to sad.  We learn how Molly got in good with the Svartalves, the price she's paying as a Winter Queen.  We get three stories about "Bigfoot," one about Butters as a Knight, and even get to hear both Maggie and Mouse.

Usually anthologies include a few stories I skip over.  I enjoyed all of these.
