Jim Butcher is the author of the Dresden Files, the Codex Alera and the Cinder Spires series. His resume includes a laundry list of skills which were useful a couple of centuries ago, and he plays guitar quite badly. An avid gamer, Jim plays tabletop games in varying systems, a variety of video games and LARPs whenever he can make time for it. He currently resides mostly inside his own head, but his head can generally be found in his home town of Independence, Missouri.
The Dresden Files is my favourite series ever. I say that both as a writer and a reader . . . I don't make statements like that casuallyButcher's storytelling is satisfying on a level that's bone-deepHarry Dresden has a vitality that few urban fantasy heroes can match
