Announcing The Dresden Files Reread on!

Announcing The Dresden Files Reread on!

On November 27th, the fourteenth book of Jim Butcher's long-running urban fantasy series The Dresden Files, Cold Days, will be released. In honor of this, is kicking off a reread of the whole series, starting with the first novel, Storm Front.

The series chronicles the adventures of Harry Dresden, a wizard and private investigator based out of Chicago. When the things that go bump in the night threaten the people of the city, Harry steps in. As you can imagine, quite a bit happens over the course of fourteen books, and we aim to cover it all.

Each Monday I’ll take a look at a book in the series, chronicling Harry Dresden’s cases all the way up to Cold Days. Be aware that the posts will contain spoilers for all books up to and including the book of the week.

If you’re new to the series, I’d love it if you read along. If you’re an old fan, I’d love it if you came along for the ride. Because, Hell’s belles, it’s quite the ride.

First up, Storm Front, where Harry investigates a grisly murder and searches for a missing magician.

Very cool. I read the first seven books (my wife has a big collected set) but I never managed to get around to buying the ones after. Looks like now I have even more incentive to pick them up again!

This is a bad idea. No, really. It means I am finally going to have to read this series. Where am I going to find the time? Huh?

Grumble mumble.

Oh well. At least it will be fun, I suppose :) Bring it on!

This is a fantastic idea. I've already stared re-reading the series in preparation for COLD DAYS, and I was amazed to discover that the novels are even better the second time around. Butcher is a master of plotting. For anyone who doesn't have time to re-read all thirteen novels immediately, this blog series might be a good reminder of The Dresden Files to date.

I'm simply thrilled at the attention these books are getting. The Dresden Files is my favorite seies of any genre.

@footinmouth Since you called yourself a douche and named yourself such, guessing you probably already know this. Which is probably why they chose belles over bells, because most of Harry's problems come from ladies in distress.
I found the series a year or two ago on Netflix. Loved it, and hated that they ended it there. so I search for the books. Absolutely loved them. Looking forward to the next.

Truthowl - I watched the show on the 'flix and then read the books we had in the house. Totally agree!

Anyone know where DRM-Free ebooks of the series can be purchased? I bought several paperback books and checked out the rest from a local library.

I'd love to own the entire series in epub format.
