    I’m a big fan of the written word.

    Mildly exclusive to Fantasy or Science-Fiction, though. I’ve been known to venture into more realistic works, but I don’t like staying in worlds where there isn’t something awesome happening.

    See? Awesome. Awesomnomnom.

    So today we get to take a look at The Dresden Files.

    I just picked up the first three books in the series from my favorite bookstore, Time Out. It’s a special place. It has a cat (Oscar). A bookstore with a cat. That’s really rare nowadays.

    The Dresden Files series follows a chap called Harry Dresden. It’s set in Chicago, circa today. He’s a Wizard, and a PI. So, this series focuses on his PI-ing less ordinary cases. There’s the thing with the dude ripping people’s hearts out long-range, the one with the werewolves, and I’ve started reading No3, the one with the ghosts n’stuff.

    This book tickles me in all the right places. It’s got a perfect main character (redeemed from darkness, jaded and tired, dedicated to protecting…). It’s like a Vimes novel, where Vimes can blow a ravening werewolf through a city block on a spike of fire.

    I like the idea of blowing things right through a city block on a spike of fire.

    Did you know searching google for firesplosion yields nothing good? People need to think more awesome-like when naming things.

    Anywhos, welcome to Nukees, a comic about Berkley nuclear physics students. It’s been going since 1997.

    I like the idea of giant mechanical ants.

    3. on June 7, 2011 Heh. I was a GM for 16 years. Same campaign. Mostly the same pleyras too. (For 9.5 years or os in Houston and then I moved to Austin and ran an edited/rebooted version of the first campaign for the rest.) Loved it. Only quit running D&D when the writing career took off. Now my husband and I play in a group (that I don’t run) on Wednesday nights. It’s our date’ night.D&D is a great training ground for writers, imho. George RR Martin and Bruce Sterling are two notable writers who both table-top/pen and pencil gamed.
