Thy wish is my command as it is also posted on GoodReads:

"I've done a trilogy of short stories with linked characters in which Bigfoot is Dresden's client. They take place spread out over the length of the series so far. The Bigfoot stories were about 40 percent of a novel in total page length. Then I sat down and wrote out the foundation for two more series: the first was a Black Company-inspired fantasy series which would be a prelude trilogy to my epic epic fantasy epic. The second is a steampunk fantasy series, with lots of airships, crystals, goggles, manners, and Hornblowerism. The steampunk stuff seems to be ringing the beta readers' bells, so I think that will be the next project I go to town on.

But that will probably have to wait. I have at least one more short story to get in before the year is up. It's for the "Dangerous Women" anthology, and I'm leaning toward writing it from Molly's point of view, in the time between Ghost Story and Cold Days. Come the new year, I'll start Cold Days. With any luck, there will be snow on the ground when it happens, and I can write the first few chapters with the only light in the room being reflected from the snow outside. That would be perfect. :D"

I'm not sure what's more exciting... the Bigfoot stories, the Molly pov story, a Black Company type fantasy or a steampunk series... i have to admit the idea of Butcher taking on steampunk is pretty awesome.

Yeah, the Steampunk one is highest on my list as well...but the Molly POV story = Awesome as she's my fave secondary character in the series!

I'm all for him doing more pov stories from Dresden Files supporting cast.

BACK-UP with Thomas was great, EVEN HAND was Marcone-y goodness brilliant and AFTERMATH solid notwtistanding some difficulty in giving Murphy a more unique voice.

BACK-UP and AFTERMATH are both in SIDE JOBS.
EVEN HAND was in an anthology, Dark and Stormy Knights or something.
