    Ah, excellent. Between this, the last expanse book and the last Interdependency book, this is a good year for fantasy and sci fi.Report

    I’ll buy it, and probably enjoy it, but I sure wish Butcher would move the big-picture story arc about what sort of Fae/demigod Harry turns out to be a bit faster.Report

      Don’t you understand how shounen series work? You never fight the last guy, because that would be the end!Report

      He’s gone from writing one, maybe two, books a year to not publishing anything since 2015 (well, there was one collection of short stories).

      So, if I had to guess without googling anything to confirm (as that would be irresponsible), he’s discovered what George RR Martin discovered: there are a lot of things out there that are more fun than writing and it’s easy to do them for years at a time when you don’t have to worry about making money anymore.Report

        Brandon Sanderson noted that writing subsequent volumes of his Stormlight series was harder than he anticipated because the number of details to keep coherent explodes with each book. Now this doesn’t hurt Sanderson’s output because he takes a break from writing by writing something else. But I totally understand why Martin and Butcher are having trouble – We’re several book into a proper story ark in the Dresden Files, and that’s a whole different ball game from writing episodically.Report

          Charlie Stross has remarked that one advantage of framing the Laundry Files books as post-action write-ups by Laundry agents is he can blame any minor inconsistencies between the books on the characters’ faulty recollection of events.Report
