Jimmy: uh….what is your name? who are you? ;p
I am Priscilla, I contain multitudes. And I am so much better at being a Priscilla than Kendall Casablancas is. :D (Of course, if you had asked before March 10, 2001, I would have told you “Ellie Rosenthal”. Good riddance to my alterego!)
Alli: What, exactly, is The Dresden Files? It seems like it’s a book but I think you’ve mentioned James Marsters in connection with it before (correct me if I’m wrong, of course).
Glad you asked! The Dresden Files is an urban fantasy book series by Jim Butcher, centered upon a wizard private eye named Harry Dresden. (He’s in the phone book, under “Wizards”.) His closest friend, Karrin Murphy, runs the Chicago P.D.’s answer to the X-Files. She’s 5-foot-nothing, blonde, and has a black belt in Aikido. The first book is Storm Front, and the most recent (#8) is Proven Guilty, which technically comes out this Tuesday. Like any great series, the books just keep getting better.
Re: James, the first three books are available in audio format, read (deliciously) by James Marsters. He was Jim’s first choice to play Harry in the upcoming TV Movie/Backdoor Pilot on the Sci-Fi Channel (airdate unknown), despite James being far too short and far too pretty for the role. However, it would have meant him moving to Canada in the event the series was picked up, which James was not prepared to do. Instead, Paul Blackthorne (24) was cast in the lead role, and he looks like he’s going to be great. Hurrah!
