I just started listening to Storm Front on audio, and I'm enjoying it a lot. However, I'm having to pretend it's set in an alternate universe, because the Chicago that Jim Butcher is writing about--with its "midtown" and "10th street" and rent of less than $500 a month--bears no resemblance to the one I inhabit. It's an interesting town and I'm looking forward to reading more about it, but it doesn't exist in this here dimension. Of course, since vampires and faeries and whatnot don't exist here either, I suppose it's all of a piece.

ETA: There's a nice article about the Dresden/Butcher version of Chicago over here, featuring some interesting links to not-well-known underground places. I've been walking in the pedways and it really is like a weird other world in there.
