Kim | 4 comments Does anybody know the true order of this series anymore? I need a little help because I read the first few books of the series, and then I got sidetracked with all of the lovely Stephen King stuff that has come out in the past couple of years. I would LOVE to get back into the series, but I don't remember where I left off or what order the books are in. Could somebody please help a poor wizarding soul that is trying to get back in the swing of things?

Chris  (haughtc) | 2450 comments You can always look at Butcher's website. He has all the books listed there. What's more, he keeps up with the chronology for his short stories: http://www.jim-butcher.com/books/dres...

Chris  (haughtc) | 2450 comments There is also the GR series page for it: https://www.goodreads.com/series/4034...

Though that can be a bit scary at first glance. It's pretty accurate though.

Cora Foerstner (corafoerstner) Comment and silly question.

I read Storm Front and Fool Moon, which were okay but didn't wow me. I thought about moving on, but I decided to try book three, and Grave Peril took off and was both more exciting and more complex. So, I'm with the program.

My silly question: Where do I find the Side Job short stories? I searched a couple of them on Amazon and nothing came up.
