Brief Cases (The Dresden Files #15.1) Reviews
It's Molly Carpenter's first week as the Winter Lady. Mab has tasked her with collecting a tribute from the Miksani, a small group of Fae who live in Alaska. When Molly arrives at the town, she finds Warden Carlos Ramirez is also there. He has been sent to help the Miksani. Molly and Carlos soon discover that something strange is going on. Some local fishermen have been possessed by some scary creatures. Molly is hoping this doesn't ruin her first assignment as the Winter Lady.

A Fistful of Warlock: 3 stars
Luccio teaming up with Wyatt Earp (!) in Wild Wild West. The thing is, I don't really pay a lot of attention to Luccio in the series. Even if she said something awesome in here...
“I am a lot of woman. I assure you, Deputy, that I am more than capable of handling it.” (It refers to Luccio's guns)
B Is For Bigfoot; I Was A Teenage Bigfoot; Bigfoot On Campus: 4 stars

A really fun anthology.
Most of these stories were new to me so it was great to get some more views into the world of Harry Dresden. I think my favorites were the three Bigfoot stories, but really there wasn't a bad story in the bunch. If you are a fan of the Dresden Files series I think this is a must read.

This is one of those times that I wish GR had half stars. This collection deserves better than 3 stars (at least my 3-star rating), but I don’t know if it really deserves 4. I’ll break it down by story, do some Goodreads math, and see how it comes out.
"Fistful of Warlocks"—3.5 stars. Loved the idea, but it was a little underdeveloped. (view spoiler)[and I didn’t like it that Luccio needed to be saved by Wyatt Earp (hide spoiler)]
"B is for Bigfoot"— ...more
I'm a HUGE Jim Butcher's fan. Both series I have read by him are in the top10 favorites of all times.
I'm (and the majority of his fans) desperately waiting for Peace Talks but while we are waiting, Brief Cases is here!
Brief Cases, just like Side Jobs, is a compilation of short stories in the Harry Dresden World.
Most of the short stories have Harry as the protagonist but we also get some of the other very well known players having their own. Molly has two, one before and one after becoming the ...more
I already read most of these in other collections.
BRIEF CASES is the second collection of short stories by Jim Butcher. The first one, SIDE JOBS was one I tremendously enjoyed because it was a nice mixture of Harry Dresden stories as well as his supporting cast. I also enjoyed seeing more of the Formor, who are my favorite of Jim Butcher's creations even if they mostly serve as cannon fodder and mooks following the destruction of the Red Court.
Brief Cases is a very entertaining collection of short stories which include three stories introduci ...more
What I really want (like I'm sure all Dresden fans do) is for Peace Talks to come out. In the meantime, it was nice to get this collection. It also helped a lot that I got to meet Mr. Butcher on a tour for the book!
I've really enjoyed his last few books a lot, but I've always had a bit of mixed feeling about the short stories. This book contains 11 stories that have been published since Side Jobs: Stories from the Dresden Files and one brand new story. As such I'd read about half of the ...more
