Ghost Story (Dresden Files, No. 13)Join us on 8/8 with author Jim Butcher for a Guest Appearance, chat and contest. Jim will start answering questions around 12:00 pm Central Daylight Time until 6:00 pm. For those visiting from outside of the US, here is the time conversion link. We are in the Chicago time zone:

Jim will be talking about his newest book in the Dresden Files series Ghost Story. I expect there will be some spoilers so be prepared.

“When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn’t doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin.

But being dead doesn’t stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own.

To save his friends-and his own soul-Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic…”

CONTEST INFO: The contest portion of the event runs until 11:59 pm Central on 8/9/11. Open to readers in the US.

Prize: Three copies of Ghost Story

  20. RSVP!!! 🙂

  21. I’ll be there!

  22. RSVP; are we only allowed to ask questions about Ghost Story or can we ask things about the series (and future hints) as a whole?

  23. My daughter saw Jim at the Harvard Coop last week and got him to autograph Ghost Story for me. Also had some cool pictures taken with Jim! I will stop by tomorrow to say hi.

  24. I am RSVPing, tho I note that it’s going to be hard for folks outside CST and who work to make it – and that unfairly cuts down on contest entries. I will def try to make it – Jim Butcher is one of my top five authors – but the contest rules need to be rethought.

  25. RSVP 🙂

  26. I can’t wait!

  27. Kind of pointless to sign up once over 50 people have RSVP’d with more on the way. There’s no way everyone will get their questions or remarks read or answered.

    Plus, I’ll bet some good $$ that this site’s server is in no way prepared for the onslaught of visitors, either – expect it to crash in probably the first hour. 🙁

  28. RSVP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. That is so cool! I am almost 50, and I have been an voracious fiction consumer since elementary school. Harry Dresden is one of my all time favorite characters in all of literature, and Butcher is one of my all time favorite authors. I will attend as long as it is in cyberscpace. If this is a physical event, well, it depends on where it is.

  30. Yes, yes and oh yes… RSVPing!!

  31. Can’t wait. Ghost Story was amazeballs

  32. RSVP!!

  33. I’d like to RSVP and participate tomorrow as well, but unfortunately I will be working. However, I hope the even is successful and everyone has fun tomorrow! 🙂

  34. RSVP

  35. Rvsp! Yay! I heart Harry!

  36. RSVPing and stating how wonderful Ghost Story was!

    • Wait…”show up”? I’m confused, is this an online Q&A or in-person at a store in a city I don’t live remotely near? None of this is being very clear about that…

    Hello from Massachusetts! Is there anyway of getting Michael back into the picture? He & Harry made a great team. Also, what are the chances of getting a “prequel” to cover Harry’s past? I would love to know about his relationship with his uncle, and other info on what happened in his life before “Storm Front”. And… What are the chances of you visiting New England?
