    I suppose unlike other authors he decided that if he can't finish one book, he may as well start writing the next one. But it's only possible if you have a detailed plan for the whole series.

    From one of the beta readers over on the Dresden Files subreddit:

    "Jim set out writing 1 book. It got quite large, and he came to recognize that there were 2 plot arcs in a book twice the size of most DF books. So he split it up, edited the 2 arcs so they stood better alone, and now we have 2 stories back to back with their own books.

    The trailer should give you a good grasp of the main plot arc of the first, and the name of the 2nd...

    Sigh, I’ve been sitting on this info for over 5 months. Finally getting to discuss it, I’m afraid I may be saying too much... so I’ll stop there."

    The description for Battle Ground:


    THINGS ARE ABOUT TO GET SERIOUS FOR HARRY DRESDEN, CHICAGO’S ONLY PROFESSIONAL WIZARD, in the next entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files.

    Harry has faced terrible odds before. He has a long history of fighting enemies above his weight class. The Red Court of vampires. The fallen angels of the Order of the Blackened Denarius. The Outsiders.

    But this time it’s different. A being more powerful and dangerous on an order of magnitude beyond what the world has seen in a millennium is coming. And she’s bringing an army. The Last Titan has declared war on the city of Chicago, and has come to subjugate humanity, obliterating any who stand in her way.

    Harry’s mission is simple but impossible: Save the city by killing a Titan. And the attempt will change Harry’s life, Chicago, and the mortal world forever.

    Now hold up.

    What's this Titan shit about? It sounds cool and I'm excited for it but at this stage in the series do we need another enemy?

    We are slowly reaching the big bad epic apocalyptic trilogy. We definitely need more enemy.

    Oh come on, it's a Harry Dresden book.

    Just look at @Todeswind 's stories. He wouldn't be Harry Dresden if he didn't piss off some new monster every year/book.

    You say that, but we've had new enemies introduced in almost every book, up to and including the latest one.

    Chances are the Titan will be the big and stupid threat while the real enemy is the one pulling its strings.

    Also is that Harry screwing Lara Raith in that trailer while Murphy sits on the sofa moping?

    That's it, @Jon has killed Jim Butcher and is writing fanfiction.

    I'm pretty sure she's sitting on the sofa with a dremel eying her cast like it sold secrets to Wikileaks.

    Are we seriously just going to gloss over the shot of Dresden and Marcone getting dressed together?

    Hol up

    There must be new material since I last checked my good sir. I shall go and read.

    edit - I still don’t see this anywhere unless it’s that video instead of text to read. Only thing I found to read in the thread was the excerpt from a while ago with Thomas and Harry running etc.

    Yes, it was a shot in the video. A very, very, confusing shot.

    Ah, thanks - I don't usually stream random videos from my phone given that I'm data-capped at 8 GB and my connection at home is too slow to be reliable unless I *really* wanna watch something.

    Sharing 4 GB with my wife - on a Canadian data plan - I sympathise. The trailer is 2:18, including the reveal of the title for Book 17 (Battle Ground) and the stinger with Harry mumbling the Spider-Man theme song while hanging upside down; the Q & A video they did right after is an hour.

    I feel like Dresden and Marcone getting dressed was the setup for a scene during the actual peace talks.

    It also reeks of Butcher knowing that the fangirls will be creaming. He knows what sells and he knows Dresden/Marcone is buttermilk to the hordes of fans who also ship Snarry and Dean/Sam.

    The trailer was actually pretty sweet. The casting was decent. I kinda wish we had that as a tv series now.

    I'm thinking these two books might give us a TV show. I'm pretty sure we would have had another one had the gap between books not been so long.

    Also, Q/A so far:

    Well.... shit.

    Who is gonna die and what powerup is Dresden gonna get?

    Edit: Especially as this mini-story is after Battle Grounds apparently.

    Two books in a single year? Wow. That's a delight I haven't seen from Butcher since he was working on Codex Alera.

    Hoping for Murphy to die!

    Doesn't matter, Murphy is based on his ex wife. She's getting killed off soon. Also she's bound to be touching 50 soon, right?
