An all-new Dresden Files story headlines this urban fantasy short story collection starring the Windy City's favorite wizard.
The world of Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is rife with intrigue--and creatures of all supernatural stripes. And you'll make their intimate acquaintance as Harry delves into the dark side of truth, justice, and the American way in this must-have short story collection.
From the Wild West to the bleachers at Wrigley Field, humans, zombies, incubi, and even fey royalty appear, ready to blur the line between friend and foe. In the never-before-published "Zoo Day," Harry treads new ground as a dad, while fan-favorite characters Molly Carpenter, his onetime apprentice, White Council Warden Anastasia Luccio, and even Bigfoot stalk through the pages of more classic tales.
With twelve stories in all, Brief Cases offers both longtime fans and first-time readers tantalizing glimpses into Harry's funny, gritty, and unforgettable realm, whetting their appetites for more to come from the wizard with a heart of gold.

It's been a long time since I listened to my Harry Dresden books. When I saw that Brief Cases was available, I snapped it up. And when I heard James Marsters reading some of these excellent short stories, it was like having an old friend come visit unexpectedly after a long time apart. Not that I'm knocking any of the other readers, mind you! And the stories were great, as always. I particularly liked "I Was a Teenage Bigfoot" for some reason. So thank you, Messrs. Butcher and Marsters -- and the rest of you, too -- for making my daily commute so much more pleasant.
