    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    You really think I'd post about unrealistic sci-fu?

    How many shitty books are we supposed to read before we get to the good ones?

    Can't I just read good books to start off with?

    What about the people who liked Butcher's first, shitty books? They enabled him to publish the subsequent volumes. Suckers or morons?

    Unlike most, I actually enjoyed Storm Front pretty well. Fool Moon didn't really do it for me, though.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    It's entertaining trash. Emphasis on entertaining. Butcher isn't a great writer, but his books make for decent brain-off entertainment. He's like the Michael Bay of writers.

    Who, like Harry Dresden, was notable for his use of magic in combat situations.

    Oh man, the Dresden Files. I ripped through those books a while back, and enjoyed them less and less as I went along. The Aikido thing didn't bother me, though; suspending my believe for the purposes of magic also covers Aikido wristlocks.

    At one point, though--and I can't remember which book it was, but it wasn't one of the early ones--Jim Butcher seemed to have a seizure or something that caused him to just keep typing "the next best thing to" over and over again. I've never wanted to punch a book so much in my life as I did each time Harry said that whatever thing was the next best thing to the thing he actually needed.

    I have a weakness for pulp fantasy/sci-fi

    Personally I really enjoyed the first few Dresden Files, the middle went a little bit meh and the latest two are picking up again.
