Episode 77 – BOOK CLUB: Storm Front

In this Book Club episode, Liz and Heather examine Storm Front by Jim Butcher. This is the first in the Dresden Files series. Both of us had received multiple recommendations to read this series over the years, so it was time we dug in!

Storm Front

Storm Front (Dresden Files #1)

Harry Dresden is the best at what he does. Well, technically, he’s the only at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers. For the “everyday” world is actually full of strange and magical things — and most of them don’t play well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a — well, whatever.

There’s just one problem. Business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry’s seeing dollar signs. But where there’s black magic, there’s a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry’s name. And that’s when things start to get… interesting.

Magic. It can get a guy killed.

    Nitro (Nitrogen, Nitrogen gas, N2) is stable inert gas that makes most of the earth’s atmo. N2 is the reason the earth’s atmo does not catch on fire when you light a match.


    In beer in creates smaller bubbles and a creamer head than CO2. I do not know what they were using it for in that coffee, but it could be used to force the coffee out of a storage pressure vessel (Keg). However, if that were the case, there should be gas dissolved into the coffee. Was it bubbly?

    Never mind, I found this -> https://goo.gl/xaEzF7
    So it should be just to force the coffee out of the keg and no bubbles given.

    CO2 also makes an acid (carbonic acid) when dissolved in water (which is what beer and soda and coffee are mostly consisting of (yes, there is carbonated coffee (no I do not recommend it))). So CO2 would actually be the more dangerous substance particularly to your teeth and stomach when consumed to excess.

    Nitro will just stay nitro when dissolved in water. It will already be present in some small amount in your tap water, and is also the gas you hear escaping when you open a bottled water or bag of chips.
