[21m 8s] In the final part of the interview, Fred talks with Jim about what the future holds (and that snazzy Hugo nod). In particular, we find out some details about the upcoming 12th Dresden Files novel, and what Jim might do for a second series after Alera wraps up. Plus, a dangerously decaying orbit around the moon! Tune in. AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT, there are probably some SPOILERS in this one. If you're current on the series, though, you're probably in good shape.
