Jim Butcher’s highly entertaining wizard P.I. series was optioned by the SciFi channel to become a t.v. series. In fact, it premiered last night, and as an avid reader/fan of the books, I have to say, they did an excellent job. (Even though it didn’t stay true to Butcher’s story.)
However, the books are great and lots of fun. (Harry tends to be rather sarcastic, as does his, um, sidekick Bob.) There are several novels now with more on the way. One caution: The series starts out wonderfully and goes into a brief lull midway through, but the more recently published titles have exceeded all the rest in entertainment value and quality. So, stick with it! (They are indeed worth it.) Enjoy!
