Re: The Dresden Files Short Story placement

Apparently it's supposed to be some sort of katakana form of saying "MATRIX" or The Matrix (as in the Title of the Film in Japanese) Link:

The story behind it is quoted in the second post here, since the original post by McGrath has since been pruned for some reason.,597.0.html

To answer a question about the staff: It is Japanese! I didn't think anyone would notice it , but you guys are sharp!
It was sort of a personal joke between my girlfriend (who is japanese ) and me, at the time of doing the cover. We were arguing about the matrix movies for some reason and I decided to put 'Matrix' in Japanese on the staff.
No real meaning behind it.
And again, it's just another thing Chris McGrath drew that isn't in the books.
"You fool! You've fallen victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous of which is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia", but only slightly less well known is this - "Never go in against a Sicilian, when death is on the line!"
