Publisher's Summary

The first short-story collection in the number-one New York Times- best-selling series - including brand-new Harry Dresden short stories!

Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of best-selling author Jim Butcher - a compendium of cases that Harry 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 Changes. This is a must-have collection for every devoted Harry Dresden fan, as well as a perfect introduction for readers ready to meet Chicago's only professional wizard.

Just wild about Harry

This is an excellent collection of stories set in Harry Dresden's Chicago, including the first (non-canon by now) Dresden story, and two from the viewpoint of someone other than Harry.

Much needed break

After everything that happened in changes this was very refreshing. Felt strangely nostalgic like I was remembering the good times after a friend had passed away. Except for the last story though. That felt like it was rallying cry. As if it's saying it's not over yet, get ready for the next fight! Can't wait to see what comes next

Good short stories

This medium worked really well for the material. Nothing dragged and it gave the opportunity for butcher to show a bit of variety within his setting. This was better than many of the novels.
