Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher—a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious. Also included is a new, never-before-published novella that takes place after the cliff-hanger ending of the 2010 novel Changes.

This is a must-have collection for every devoted Harry Dresden fan—and a perfect introduction for readers ready to meet Chicago’s only professional wizard.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This entry is the collection’s strongest, full of powerful emotion.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Butcher has not only given the genesis of each story but also indicates where each fits chronologically among the novels. Anyone who likes the Harry Dresden long works probably thinks it’s high time this collection came out.”


  • “[Side Jobs] is...witty, fast-moving, and well worked-out. Butcher’s yarns go along with the standard supernatural repertory while providing enough twists to keep things fresh and intriguing.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Die-hard fans who can’t wait for next year’s Ghost Story will want to rush to the final novella, “Aftermath,” starring Harry’s friend Karrin Murphy, but there are many others here worth reading, like “Day Off” from the comic collection Blood Lite, “The Warrior,” from Mean Streets, and an early tale, “Vignette.” Adding value to this title are Butcher’s introductions to each story, filling the reader in on its place in the Dresden-verse time line and offering insight into the author’s intentions.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Gail Ann | 1/19/2014

    " Jim Butcher is a master of exposition, explaining just enough of his complex urban-fantasy world to keep the reader informed without ever slowing the action. All except one of these stories were published independently in magazines or anthologies, so familiarity with the Dresden Files series isn't needed. You might find yourself hooked, though! "
