Currently working through a collection of short stories - Side Jobs: Stories From the Dresden Files
- that fill in gaps between the novels.
For those of you not familiar with Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, I give you this intro.
Let's get something clear right up front.The whole thing is great fun. Though I have to admit that Storm Front - the 1st novel in the series - isn't up to the quality of the others. It isn't bad, just not as good.
I'm not Harry Dresden.
Harry's a wizard. A genuine, honest-to-goodness wizard. He's Gandalf on crack and an IV of Red Bull, with a big leather coat and a .44 revolver in his pocket. He'll spit in the eye of gods and demons alike if he thinks it needs to be done, and to hell with the consequences--and yet somehow my little brother manages to remain a decent human being.
I'll be damned if I know how.
But then, I'll be damned regardless.
My name is Thomas Raith, and I'm a monster.
