Summary
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.
