Summary

Harry is the best and technically the 'only' at what he does, being the lone professional wizard PI in the Chicago phonebook. So when the Chicago PD has cases that transcend mortal capabilities, they come to him for answers.
For the 'everyday' world is actually full of strange and magical things - and most of them don't play well with humans. Yet despite his precautions, Harry tends to stumble from crisis to drama in his dealings with the supernatural world - call it an occupational hazard.
Here, he unfailingly manages to get on the wrong side of werewolf, fae, and vampires alike. And that's where his own rather special powers come into play....
These bite-sized stories are tremendously entertaining and will leave you itching to explore more of Harry Dresden's world. And as well as eight short stories, this collection includes an all-new Dresden Files novella.

Good for filling in time

If you could sum up Side Jobs: Stories from the Dresden Files in three words, what would they be?

snippets of Harry.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Side Jobs: Stories from the Dresden Files?

seeing the world through Thomas the Vampires eyes and learning about the oblivion war. I'm hoping more of the oblivion war will be introduced in future Dresden novels. I enjoy the character Thomas in the main novel, but having a story told in Thomas's voice help show where his loyalties lie and how he feels about his family, his demon, and Harry.

What does James Marsters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

James Marsters brings all the characters to life, and help emulate their actions and intentions though his performance. In my eyes, or should i say ears, James Masters' version of Harry Dresden is Harry Dresden.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It is difficult to say as the book is a compilation of many stories and i don't want to give anything away.

Any additional comments?

This is a must read after Changes and before Ghost Story, as it contains the novella 'Aftermath' which shows the few hours after Changes. I made the mistake of reading Ghost Story before this book and felt that I had missed something from the beginning.
Also this book brings together a lot of Jim Butchers short stories and Novellas which are contained in other Anthologies, so its good to have them all in one place.

An indispensable part of the Dresden canon.

I recently re-listened to all the Dresden novels but missed out Side Jobs. Error. Despite the difference in format, Butcher pours all his characteristic wit and skill into every sentence - moreover, there are nuggets of Dresdenverse knowledge in here that no fan will want to miss. Indispensable stuff from the master of 21st Century Wizard Noir. Probably not for those new to Dresden, sadly - just bite the bullet and buy Storm Front.

Great!

Awesome stories that will take you deeper into the Dresden universe.
James Marsters does a terrific job portraying stories from other characters perspective than Dresden.

Just as good as Jim Butcher can

Some stories I had allready read but there was new ones. Especially I liked last one because Harry and his doughter is still undiscovered country. There is also stories thru other eyes like Molly and Butters. You really should read this book not because its Harry Dresden but because there is much other people in Dresden files that matters too. Its good and ..ofcourse lots of fun!
