Dog Men

Dresden’s Dog Men #reflection

Dresden’s Dog Men It seems like everything is coming up Harry right now. And if you were to hear that spoken it would sound very strange. It is an allusion to Harry Dresden and the thoughts that I have been working my way through Brief Cases (I mentioned a story …

Weird Wizardry

Weird Wizardry #reflection

Weird Wizardry I don’t think I have ever actually broached this subject before. Yeah, that makes it sound like I might touch on something profound or something but really it isn’t that out there. It’s been a while since a Dresden book has come out. I’m referring to Harry Dresden, …

Kingsway West

Kingsway West #reflection
