The Story Behind The Story

I first met Jim Butcher at DragonCon in 2003 on a panel we had together at 8 AM. He impressed me greatly by the fact that A) he was awake at that hour and B) that he could be funny that early in the morning. God knows, I don't have actual brain activity until at least lunch.
