I loved Ghost Story
Oh, me too. It was definitely good, a "mediocre" Dresden book is still a 10/10 when it comes to entertainment. But considering the scope and scale presented in Changes, it was inevitable to be a let down.
Basically, I found myself wanting to plow through the whole Dresden being dead storyline. It was cool seeing the spirit world, but I only found myself truly interested when the characters we all love were re-introduced. It was definitely a "slog" to get to that point for me
Signs of life?
As of May 29th, 2019, the current draft of the novel is up to chapter 62. Progress! We don’t have a release date yet, but we’ll update this page, send out a newsletter, and tweet it to the high heavens the moment we do!
Still more likely to publish before GRRM
I'd embed it, but for some reason I keep getting an error message when I try to do so.
Copy and pasting from Butcher's Twitter:
"Finished the finale of Peace Talks this morning.
Just the wrap-up chapter to go. :)
News regarding pub dates as I get it."
I still can't embed tweets, but Butcher just tweeted out:
I love typing that.
ITS ABOUT MOTHER FUCKING GOD DAMNED THRICE CURSED TIME
So how long will it take to get it published? I assume that means he's done writing, but it still needs to be submitted to an editor and such.
I think for Sanderson it takes 6-9 months.
That’s good news, now get to work on the next if you really did plan on giving us like 10 more of these
I think he said next up is the sequel to his stream punk book
Also acceptable as I was a big fan. Probably annoy Dresden-only readers though.
Pretty sure Sanderson is notorious for delivering far-along drafts though. Probably depends on the writer and how rough their rough drafts are. If the editing process is short then that would speed things up.
SOUND THE ALARM. WE HAVE A RELEASE DATE.
"Ace Books has announced that the next installment in Jim Butcher’s #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files series, Peace Talks, will publish on July 14, 2020 from Ace Books in the US and Orbit in the UK. The book will be the first new Dresden Files novel since 2014’s Skin Game."
ABOUT FUCKING TIME. My kid couldn't read when Skin Game came out.
I've decided to jump in here, wish me luck guys
Great decision. First few are solid, quick reads. Then they really take off.
Next book is up for preorder on audible. Not sure if that's an update, just saw today while browsing.
Spoiler for size. I apologize for nothing.
big fan so far, starting book 2 tonight
1 is the weakest book by far, only gets better
I think the series really takes off around book 4. Really expands the universe
Death Masks was when things started getting real imo
So if I’m not mistaken, we’re getting two books this year? Peace Talks and Battle Ground in September? Jim, you sneaky bastard
That’s fucking awesome
So peace talks is going to have a cliff hanger ending right?
The Xmas story he put out last Xmas referenced the peace talks so maybe not
Again with the hat?
Finished my re-read a bit early. Fuck you quarantine
took a break with something different so I don't get worn out on the series, will be starting book 3 once I'm done
It just seems weird to me to put out a book 3 months after your last one unless they were written at the same time and the first did have some sort of cliffhanger
I'd almost rather they waited a year between them, cuz I think he's doing at least one Cinder Spire book after these two so we're probably looking at 3-4 years until the next one
I read he wrote Peace Talks and it grew pretty big, so he rewrote it to where it was two books instead.
It has been five years since the last book.
Definitely seems like he split the next one into two separate novels.
IIRC he got divorced, moved, got remarried and I think his dog died so he wasn't writing much for several years
Hopefully he is reenergized and we get them at a regular cadence again
On the other hand, hasn't he always said he's planning to end the Dresden Files after 20 books or so? Maybe he should stretch it out a little...
Tuesday is the day, boys.
Oh shit, I totally forgot, going to have to charge my nook
What's the spoilers rule?
In spoilers. Put how far into the book you are. That’s what we’ve done for all the book club books and it works well.
4 chapters in, not disappointed.
Gonna have to carve out some time to listen to this on audiobook. Not having a commute at the moment is severely impacting my Audible consumption.
Probably going to reread the series before reading this one.
Spoiler: Just finished it
Should have seen the cliffhanger coming, what with the next book being released in September.
Spoiler: Also just finished
I felt the same way; it felt like I was halfway thru the book when it ended. Makes sense since it was originally one massive book but still annoying until September
