Brief Cases (The Dresden Files #15.1) Reviews
First, I had no idea that James Marsters wasn't narrating all of the stories. While I was OK with the narrator for the Molly POV stories, the Lucio story was unlistenable for me and I had to skip it. That was also the only one of the previously-published stories I had not read, which is really irritating.
I liked the Harry and Mouse scenes in Zoo Day, but not Maggie. Honestly, I don't read the Dresden Files for its female characters - and that includes female children. Likewise ...more
Yeah, I'm a Dresden Files fanatic, so I preordered this audiobook, baby!
"A Fistful of Warlocks" (from Straight Outta Tombstone, edited by David Boon), read by Cassandra Campbell: 3.5 stars
I loved listening to Cassandra Campbell narrate this short story. My chief complaint? I WANTED MORE! Too short, but extremely promising. I'd listen to an entire series of her Wild West adventures.

Thanks to Netgalley for providing a copy of this book for review.
If you're a fan of Jim Butcher, you'll likely enjoy this book of short stories set in the world of Harry Dresden. Note that they are not all stories about Harry Dresden! Several of them are from the viewpoint of other characters like Molly, Butters, Anastasia Luccio, and Gentleman Johnny Marcone. Each story features an introduction by Jim Butcher that places the story in context and time in the series. These were pretty helpful, an ...more
Brief Cases (The Dresden Files #15.1) by Jim Butcher is a book I requested from NetGalley and the review is voluntary. I have loved his books even before he had the TV show. I love the imagination, creativity, and the humor. This book is another one of those books! Several short stories creative characters and plots that kept me interested from beginning to the end. They also have just enough snark and wit! There were several stories about Bigfoot and a really great one about Dodge City and Mr. ...more
What I really want (like I'm sure all Dresden fans do) is for Peace Talks to come out. In the meantime, it was nice to get this collection. It also helped a lot that I got to meet Mr. Butcher on a tour for the book!
I've really enjoyed his last few books a lot, but I've always had a bit of mixed feeling about the short stories. This book contains 11 stories that have been published since Side Jobs: Stories from the Dresden Files and one brand new story. As such I'd read about half of the ...more
Brief Cases is a delightful anthology of novellas and shorts all set in the Dresden world. While one could listen/read without having read Dresden previously, I think the stories are more meaningful and entertaining for the fans of the series. The tales take place over a wide-ranging time period, from before Harry’s birth, to events that take place shortly after the conclusion of Skin Game, the most recent full-length story. If you are not up-to-date with your Dresden reading, there are huge spo ...more
3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/06/05/...
Hard to believe it has been four years since the release of the last Dresden Files book, and sure, fans might have a little longer to wait until Peace Talks, but for now, an anthology would tide me over quite nicely. Peace Talks is a collection of new and old (but mostly old) short fiction that takes place in the world of Harry Dresden, collected in one convenient volume. Together with the previous anthology Side Jobs, t ...more
Whether a read for the beach this summer or a timely one for the cooler, spooky autumn or even from the comfort of your chair in a warm house during the cold of winter, these stories are a glad return to Dresden’s world for fans. They make great, shorter jaunts for new readers wanting to try out Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files novels.
