Subterranean Press is reporting that Jim Butcher’s Backup is in stock and shipping. Here”s how it all begins:
Let”s get something clear right up front.
I”m not Harry Dresden.
Harry”s a wizard. A genuine, honest-to-goodness wizard. He”s Gandalf on crack and an IV of Red Bull, with a big leather coat and a .44 revolver in his pocket. He”ll spit in the eye of gods and demons alike if he thinks it needs to be done, and to hell with the consequences-and yet somehow my little brother manages to remain a decent human being.
I”ll be damned if I know how.
But then, I”ll be damned regardless.
My name is Thomas Raith, and I”m a monster.
The twelve thousand word novelette is set in Jim Butcher”s ultra-popular Dresden Files series. This time Harry”s in trouble he knows nothing about, and it”s up to his big brother Thomas to track him down and solve those little life-threatening difficulties without his little brother even noticing.
