Cold Days is out! Please watch your spoilers carefully.
1.Who is Harry Dresden?
-Harry Dresden is the main character of a series of books called The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. He is a wizard as he explains numerous times though out the books. He has his own scoobie gang kind of like Buffy. And he fights evil, sometimes has lunch with Farie Queens and usually ends up blowing at least one building up a book. All in all Harry is a bad ass.
2.Why should I read about this guy? Isn't this just a Harry Potter the adult ripoff?
-The Dresden Files are some of the most fun books you can find. The characters are witty, the conversations are fun and the action is packed through and through. The more of the books you read the more you get into it. Plus the guy is such a dork it will make you feel better about yourself time and again.
3.OK, this sounds like it might be more fun than poking my eyes with a hot stick or reading Twilight. Where do I start?
-The Dresden Files has turned into a pretty long series. It is 14 books with a 15th on the way. The stories in each book though are pretty self contained and unlike some other Fantasy series it actually has books coming out about once a year. So the wait period isn't 2 years to when the next ice age hits.

Next Book Title Announced: Skin Game
Short Stories! Thanks Cimmerii for point them out because I always forget about them.
Don't forget the graphic novel! Mostly because I did because I am a fool!
4. Ok, sir, I have read the books and I am in your thread. What do you want me to do? I mean I am in love with Murphy but how will she ever love a neckbeard like me? What do I discuss in this thread?
-Well, hoss, this is where you talk about the books. Plots, theories, favorite characters and favorite moments. Ask questions about are the books good or which one is your favorite. If you could though hoss avoid the Mary Sue shit. It killed the last thread and many threads before this and we really don't want to bring a satellite down on yah. Also, use spoilers for major events or twist. If you are discussing the new book put everything in spoilers for the newest book, some folks gotta work for a livin'. For older books try to keep it to minor stuff unspoiled and major stuff spoiled. You may discuss relationships unspoiled, if and only if it isn't breaking any of the previous rules. And the same goes for speculatin'. Other than that enjoy the thread.
