The Butcher Block, Jim's semi-annual podcast was just released. During the broadcast Butcher discussed the future of the Dresden series as well as other writing projects. Here are some tidbits:
- Title of 12th Dresden Book has been confirmed to be Changes as previously discussed on the net. This does change the established title format from the series. It should be released around April 2010.
- An Anthology of short stories from the Dresden files universe including some never before released. It sounded like Backup the Thomas centric novella would be included. It should hit shelves Fall 2010. No title has been set.
- Possibly a book with Ebenezer as a young man in the French and Indian War covering how the universe of the Dresden Files came to be. This could take place in the area Chicago is born so you'd get to see the beginnings of the city. This project sounded far off.
- Possibly a Sci-Fi series called U.S. Marshalls or United System Marshalls. Butcher described it as a mix of Men in Black and X-Men in space, which is inspired by Outland the movie starring Sean Connery from the 80s.
- Possibly an Alera book many years down the line that takes place in the future of that world.
- Possibly co-authoring with Cam Banks on something.
