Back in 2008 while I was still living on the East Coast, I was lucky enough to play a part in the student-run SciFi convention known as MadiCon. That spring we were proud to play host to Jim Butcher, New York Times Bestselling author of the Dresden Files. At the time, he had just published the ninth book in his contemporary fantasy/mystery series… and I hadn’t read a single one of them. Not that I wasn’t interested, of course, but I was more along the lines of not-on-the-up-and-up when it came to new(er) books and movies. As a courtesy to our guest of honor, and so that the Con-Chair didn’t have to, I bit the bullet and buckled down to read a book or two before the con.
