Yeah, AFTERMATH wont probably give us the entire story but it might give us some idea as to status of the person involved and also I'm not sure about this but I read somewhere that Jim Butcher has also revealed the 1st line of AFTERMATH, which is something to the tune of "I can't believe he's dead"

Yikes! October is so far away. :-( And... I can't - and don't - believe he's dead either. But still...what an ending!

Try using a search engine.

And on an unrelated note that's actually on topic--look at the title of the next book. Yeah, you know how Changes ends.

Given the name is on a Dresden Files book and the title of this thread is Dresden Files, care to explain how it's not on topic?

Philp Marlowe is the hard-boiled detective character created by Raymond Chandler. Originally written in the 1930's/40's (The Big Sleep, The Long Goodbye.) He is often seen as the template for most hard-done-to detectives.


Agreed, though: nice cover, B.

Curious would most USA people know who both Buffy and Marlowe are?

Thanks Hobbit:).

Don't know about 'most' but lots would know, I should think.

I never was a huge fan of the Dresden Covers, but as far as they go, this is a nice addition to them. I cannot wait for this book now! *sigh*

I have to disagree with you, FicusFan. Harry Dresden's character has evolved quite a bit in the last two novels which has added needed complexity to prevent him from becoming stale and predictable.

Of course he can't die ...

Heh. Classic.

I know, I know, taken like five years out of context, but still. I started reading from the top now and I couldn't resist.

Caught up now. Someone mentioned potions are gone from the books of late. Wasn't there a potion used somewhere in Changes? Like some kind of half-flying potion? And Molly does some potions, that's how she keeps changing her hair color. I guess magical hair-dye potions.

Where'd I read that? Somewhere after Proven Guilty, I'm sure, having to deal with Molly's basic skill stuff--Harry's had to review a lot of stuff like potions and so on because Molly's natural skills are in different areas. I thought Harry was never very good at potions as they always seemed to make things more... awful.

And I have to say, my favorite part of Small Favor was the gruffs. "My big brother is going to kill you." And the donut. And I read Dead Beat as fast as I could because I knew Sue was going to come back. Well, I was praying she would, at least.

Hope I'm being cryptic enough.

People -- if you're following the novels and not reading the stories in the anthologies, you need to read them. Go to the store and read them in the store if you have to. Particularly you need to read the big fat supernatural birthday story before finishing Changes.

I hope so. You might have to be older than 25 and enjoy old movies for Marlowe. Humphrey Bogart at his best. But much more straight forward and less annoying than Dresden.
