Thanks for anyone who participated in the first month of the Dresden Files Group Read. I’m sorry I didn’t get this post up on time. I was busy preparing for the earlier-than-expected induction of IL.
- What did you think of Storm Front overall?
- Is this your first time reading a Dresden book?
- How about your first occult detective novel? Have you read others in this subgenre?
I loved Storm Front, and gave it 4 stars, as can be seen in my review. As far as occult detective novels go, I think Dresden is the gold standard.
This is not the first time I’ve read this book – in fact I’ve read the first three. But I restarted reading them for the sake of others who wanted to join this project from the beginning.
I have partially read three other occult detective series, if the Nightside novels (Simon R Green) and the Iron Druid Chronicles (Kevin Hearne) count. The third is certainly in that subgenre: Rivers of London (Ben Aaronovich).

This book and series sound interesting. I read a plot summary and it reminds me a little of Phillip K. Dick’s books. The idea that taking drugs might give someone powers with some insanity in the mix sounds very much like one of his plots.
You know, I STILL have never read a Phillip K Dick book. I can’t imagine why not. He’s written so many famous ones!
