Fool Moon
Jim Butcher

Could a werewolf be loose in Chicago? Common sense says no. The grisly evidence says yes. So does Harry Dresden. And with his weird connections, he should know....

Dresden File #2
January 2001
Featuring: Harry Dresden
352 pages
ISBN: 0451458125
Paperback (reprint)
Add to Wish List

Paranormal | Thriller | Suspense

Business has been slow. Okay, business has been dead. And not even of the undead variety. You would think Chicago would have a little more action for the only professional wizard in the phone book. But lately, Harry Dresden hasn't been able to dredge up any kind of work — magical or mundane.

But just when it looks like he can't afford his next meal, a murder comes along that requires his particular brand of supernatural expertise.

A brutally mutilated corpse. Strange-looking paw prints. A full moon. Take three guesses — and the first two don't count...

Dresden Files

Re: Fool Moon

When my children were little, I was
desperately searching for a book for
them that I loved when I was a child!
The book was called "Splish, Splash
& Splush" about three little ducklings.
A friend recommended that I try
eBay, and I found it! I was the
firstbidder at $5.00. Never thinking
that anyone else would be
interested, I didn't check the auction
again until it was over, figuring I had
the book. Nope! It had bid to over
$20.00! I checked eBay for almost a
year after that, but never saw
another one listed. One day when
the were a little older, but not too old
for the book, I saw it for sale at a
church auction! By the time I was
able to get to the table it was on, it
was gone! A few more years pass
with the occassional checks on
eBay, no luck. Now my kids are a bit
old for the book, but I can't give up
looking for it! Last year, while finally
going through my attic, guess what I
found? .... Yup! "Splish, Splash &
Splush" My daughter read it and
thought it was cute, my son didn't
want to read it. So, now I have it put
on a shelf with my other treasured
books in hopes that someday I will
have grandchildren to read my
favorite childhood book to! All the
years of searching and I had it all

all I can say is just keep on writing and your fan will keep on reading

I'm a terrible story teller, so it is just as
well I have no stories to tell!
Sue Ahn 11:09pm October 24, 2009)

I guess I lead a very dull life. I've never had an experience that was stranger than fiction.
Carol Woodruff 11:43pm October 24, 2009)

When our children were very young my husband used to take them for walks and tell them the latin names of plants (he is a nursery plant manager). Today our eldest daughter can remember the first one he taught her but no more, (she is now a primary teacher), our son cannot remember any, (he's a policeman) but our youngest at 16 can remember them all and is planning on being an egytologist as she can now remember data without any effort. Was it the training of her father giving her all these facts on trees? maybe!

Heather's experience takes me back to when cd players were first available in cars. Unfortunately, the disks bounced around when the car did, and many of my very favorite cd's were ruined. When I bought my next car, I had the cd player exchanged for a tape deck. All my children told me I was crazy, but hey, I'm happy with it :)
Louise Pledge 6:32am October 25, 2009)

Have only recently been updated with a CD player in my car, so don't have any horror stories yet, but am sure that I will have some in the future.
Joanne Reynolds 7:37am October 25, 2009)

Would love to listen to books when we are on trip but my husband can't listen & drive
Pat Wilson 8:47am October 25, 2009)

I don't have a story for you but I do love my audiobooks. I can't wait until I have a car with a CD player! Until then it is cassettes for me in the car.
Michelle K 9:21am October 25, 2009)

I've never listened to an audio book. I'm rarely alone in the car and I don't want my kids to hear what I like to read!
Lisa Freeman 11:33am October 25, 2009)

I've never experienced anything stranger than fiction personally, but I love reading other's accounts. This is a very funny one. I am currently reading my way through the Dresden books and this really is quite a coincidence.
Ellie Wright 1:28pm October 25, 2009)

You were a recommended read by Nora Roberts some years ago. I will get around to trying one of your stand alone books one day:)
Nancy Bristow 2:55pm October 25, 2009)

Would love to listen to books, reading is hard my stroke. Thanks!
Brenda Sarkkinen 4:54pm October 25, 2009)

Gotta love that Harry!
My story: several years ago, we had a horrible storm go through the town. Lightning struck a tall tree on the far side of our neighbor's house - burned out the phone lines, etc. But what was weird was that a wind-up music box I had sitting on the dining room table, well away from anything electrical, started playing. And it was NOT wound up.
Vicky Burkholder 4:55pm October 25, 2009)

I love my audio books...but my Ipod just died so I'm back to using my old CD player on my nightstand....It's not so bad until you have to change a battery in the dark!!!
Mitzi Hinkey 4:56pm October 25, 2009)

I LOVE to listen to books when I am driving or knitting.

Lisa Garrett 5:32pm October 25, 2009)

I don't have the opportunity to listen to audio books & I don't have a strange story so aren't I a dull one?
Mary Preston 6:29pm October 25, 2009)

I would love to hear a audio book when I'M driving!
Ann Unger 7:22pm October 25, 2009)

My entire life, especially my marriage, is stranger than fiction but there isn't enough room on this page to write it all down. Maybe I should write a book!
Mary Lynn Hayes 8:15pm October 25, 2009)

The old adage is definitely true. How else would the Mythbusters make a living? lol All those myths usually are loosely based on actual events and some of them are quite unusual.

While we were on vacation a few years
ago, our son was attacked by a bear
behind our house. We go home 2 days
later about 2 in the morning. About
4AM our 3 dogs went crazy barking
and trying to get through the front
door and the window in our bedroom.
We could hear something banging
around outside, knocking the furniture
off. I got up and turned the porch
light on. Was the bear back? No, a
cow had gotten out of the neighbor's
pasture and was stuck on the porch
trying to get off. Short night.
Patricia Barraclough 9:36pm October 25, 2009)

I never am patient enough to listen to an audio book because they don't seem to speak fast enough for me so I won't have Harry's curse on that piece of technology at least! My sympathies for your troubles!
E Felder 11:20pm October 25, 2009)

I love audio books! They allow me to do things but listen to a great book at the same time. Poor Harry, he only lasted on season on T.V. So Sad!!!!!
Lisa Glidewell 11:01pm October 26, 2009)

I have only listened once to an audio book. I think it is time that I did, as on a long drive that is boring it would be a wonderful way to make the time go by while the characters come alive in the audio book.
Barbara Ryan 11:47pm October 26, 2009)

The last time I had a Harry Dresden book at home that I was reading, I was sitting in my usual comfy recliner and the phone rang, since we normally screen our calls I checked and it was my daughter's number I picked it up and there was no one on the other end. I didn't think much about it at the time since she has a 2 year old, but it happened again, and still there was no one on the line. I started to get concerned so I called her phone and it went directly to voice mail. I left a message about what had happened & asked for her to call me back. She did eventually call me back and the children hadn't been playing with her phone it had been turned off and on the charger the entire time. So was Harry's magic at work? She had been the last phone call we'd gotten legitimately on that phone. Hmm, curiouser and curiouser.
