::Dresden Files



{{#invoke:Hatnote|hatnote}} {{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Use mdy dates |date=__DATE__ |$B= }} {{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} The Dresden Files is a series of contemporary fantasy/mystery novels written by Jim Butcher. The first novel, Storm Front, was published in 2000 by Roc Books.

The books are written as a first person narrative from the perspective of the main character, private investigator and wizard Harry Dresden, as he recounts investigations into supernatural disturbances in modern-day Chicago. Butcher's original proposed title for the first novel was Semiautomagic, which sums up the series' balance of fantasy and hard-boiled detective fiction.<ref name="">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>

As of 2014, Butcher has written 15 novels set in the "Dresden Files" universe, plus a number of short stories (some of which are collected in the anthology Side Jobs). The series has also been released in audiobook format. As of October 23, 2015, James Marsters has recorded all of the audiobooks in the series. Other works set in the same fictional universe include graphic novels (two new stories, plus adaptations of the first two novels), and The Dresden Files Roleplaying Game. In 2007, a television series based on the novels aired for one season on the American Sci-Fi Channel.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
