For fans of Butcher's ( No. 1 New York Times best-selling "Dresden Files" series who don't much care for the company Harry Dresden keeps in anthologies, Side Jobs compiles nearly every work of short fiction Butcher has ever written about the Chicago wizard PI, including a new novella that picks up hours after the point at which Changes (2010) left off. Series narrator James Marsters ( delivers his usual excellent performance. While not quite as exciting as the Dresden novels, this latest series addition will certainly be welcomed by Dresden's many fans. [The ROC: Penguin Group hc was recommended for "short story fans, as each piece can stand alone," LJ Xpress Reviews, 9/23/10.—Ed.]—Theresa Connors, Arkansas Tech Univ. Lib., Russellville
