    Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted in this thread in over a year.
    They've announced the premiere date for Shadowhunters, January 12, and released a couple of clips. It appears to actually be one scene separated into too. It's kind of weird the way they did this because there are a lot of things that are different, like I'm pretty sure Magnus had nothing to do with Pandemonium, Clary and Jace didn't interact outside of the club, and the big fight was just one quick kill of a single demon, but it's still recognizable as the book.

    On the book front, I haven't read any of the UF series I'm working on in a while, so I'm pretty sure either a Kate Daniels or a Dresden Files book will be one of the next things I read.

    And the thread risises from the DEAD!
    I've gotten back to my urban fantasy reading over the last couple months, starting with some Dresden Files.
    Back in April through May I read through the first four stories in The Dresden Files: Side Jobs, the series short story collection. I really enjoyed all four stories, the first one was a bit simple, but it's understandable since Butcher explains in the introduction that it was one of the first things he ever wrote. I enjoyed the other three even more, the one thing I liked most about them was how each one really focused a lot on a different member of Harry's supporting cast.
    I started reading Small Favor, the 10th Dresden novel yesterday.
