Summary: Welcome to the McAnally’s Pubcast, a podcast dedicated to the Dresen Files Universe. For the newly indoctrinated, Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files follows the story of a professional wizard in Chicago. The first book, Storm Front, was published in 2000, and the series now boasts 17 novels, plus a combined 36 short stories, comics, and graphic novels to help flesh out the world.

Novel Summary:Harry Dresden, a Chicago private investigator and wizard, heads to a small, isolated Missouri town terrorized by Nevernever monsters. The singularly unfortunate Talbot family has suffered a curse that has decimated their number for generations, and only our hero can save them... that is, if he can survive hostile lawmen, the dark secrets of townsfolk, an ancient guardian spirit, and two deadly carnivores! Can Dresden cleanse the Talbot bloodline of its curse without a blood sacrifice of his own? Episode 1 Summary:Harry’s presence is requested in a small town in Missouri, where a local family seems to have become the target of foul play. Working from the assumption that all psychotic killers, mortal or supernatural alike, cannot resist admiring their handiwork and reveling in some schadenfreude, Dresden and Prescott “Pres” Tremaine (the deputy sheriff that hired Harry), decide to look for anyone suspicious or out of place at the Talbot's funeral. As luck, or perhaps a lack thereof, would have it, our boys are not disappointed.
