Hmm, Anne Rice had some great books beyond Interview...

Ramses the Damned was one of my favorite. Servant of the Bones was another good one.

Anita Blake was good, then turned to werecat porn.

I haven't read Dresden, and I still have a book or three I have to read for Origen. (Just finished a 9 book series).

I think I will pick up the Greywalker stuff though and add it to the pile of things to read.

Edit: Is it just me or are $14.00 paperbacks a little steep?

$14 paperbacks? I've got to get me a library card again.

The large size paperbacks are always more expensive. I'm not sure why, it doesn't seem like the page size should nearly double the price of the book.

Well I just picked up all three, the hardback for #3 is almost the same price as the paperbacks... so...

What book are you on? I'm about 1/3 way into Death Masks myself. I'm loving the series.

I love the dresden books, i'm hanging on for small favour in paperback though. Believe it or not I didn't buy the books for ages because i'd enjoyed yhe (yes i know rubbish) TV series and was worried I wouldn't like the books. I'm a fool.

I didn't hate the TV series...but it had little if nothing to do with the Dresden Files books.

For the most part Butcher's done way keeping the series building on itself without things looking like plot coupons. (With the possible exception of owing favors to a certain supernatural entity, which he cashed in on in the last book.)

There's a few things I really like about Dresden:

1. The charecter's are reasonably flawed. They weren't built using White Wolf's merits and flaws to balance each other. Some charecters are more flawed than others.

2. Harry does not wear the white hat. Harry is one of the more "real" protagonists I've read in a long time...despite being a wizard.

3. Rather than trying to recreate Dashell Hammet, the PI side of the world seems more inspired by Robert B. Parker. The dialog works.

As I said, I think he kind of mailed in Small Favor, as he's gotten busy with other stuff, including a pure fantasy series which it seemed to me was what he wanted to be writing anyway.

My first exposure to Dresden was the TV series. I enjoyed it (though my wife did comment on the character being a man-whore every episode). I'm seeing the plots being shared from the books to the TV series to a small extent. I'm enjoying it, but I'm glad I saw the TV show first rather than vice versa. I can accept the divergence better this way.

Eric, i'm also very glad i saw them in that order, I enjoy the TV show having seen it first, but I think i'd have been disspointed the other way around.
