Just saw this on

Product Description

Let's get something clear right up front.

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.

So begins "Backup," a twelve thousand word novelette set in Jim Butcher s ultra-popular Dresden Files series. This time Harry's in trouble he knows nothing about, and it's up to his big brother Thomas to track him down and solve those little life-threatening difficulties without his little brother even noticing.

Due out 31 Oct 2008

My one issue is that its 80 pages and its list price is $20....$13.60 if you pre-order from Amazon. Which is a lot for 80 pages....this one might have to be read in the bookstore. :)

Or wait till it goes on special. But I probably will not be able to help myself and get it anyway. I cant wait!

Oh! I loved this book. I picked it up about a month ago spur of the moment from the library. At that time I had only read up through book 4 and really had no idea who Thomas was but really liked him. This is what got me started reading the series again.

I enjoyed it. It was interesting hearing about magic from a VERY different perspective, and seeing how much Harry really does rely on his friends, consciously or not.
