I saw a Scott lookalike in the Orlando airport a few hours ago.

Hi Scott. Normally I would pm authors to tell them I enjoyed their work, but in this case I thought it might be more beneficial to you if I made my comments public. I really enjoyed Off to be the Wizard. I downloaded the free sample and was hooked. I purchased the Kindle version shortly afterwards. I'm recommending it to all my friends. It's easy to give a short synopsis to someone and they laugh and see the fun in the idea. You've set up a great world with great potential and you'd be doing yourself and your readers a disservice if you didn't carry on writing more stories in the wizard/hacker world!

Still digging the "Your hide will make a fine poncho" face... I wish I would do the same.

An oldie but a goodie. :)

When will we see Angry Client in the superhero universe, I wonder?

ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOSCOTT

Still funny.

I wish I could build the hypno wheel into my PPTs. My students would talk about it for years to come.

If the sleeeeeeepy part really worked, someone could make a mint. Insomnia is rampant these days. I'd buy that DVD.

LOVE the expression in panel 3! (Traditionally the most hilarious of all the panels . . . )

The height of that chair -- so amusingly intimidating...

The Hypno-wheel has made me all sleepy now!

April 19, 2013 | Unregistered Commentermohrorless

Just out of interest, but since The Client is always referred to as THE Client, do they just have the one? And he alone is paying them enough to provide salaries for everyone? No wonder he's angry!

I don't need the hypnowheel to make me sleepy. It's one of those, "WHY WON'T THIS DAY END?!?!" days. (It's 5:30 am and I still have at to get this week's contest online before I go to bed.)

Not "Angry Client". I've never thought of that character by any other name than The Aggro-Turd. http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2008/10/13/how-to-deal-with-something-you-dread.html

A rerun? Hopefully that means you spent the day working on your next novel!

April 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterClamdigger

Finally caught up to the archives, and loved every bit of it (still laugh at random at the early "How to fake a smile" strip). Awesome!

How to have a Hypnowheel in a PowerPoint presentation:

Use this as a background image, and then have PowerPoint rotate it slowly.

"Maximizing our negative potential" is well beyond classic; that phrase should be immortalized.

April 19, 2013 | Unregistered Commentermcinsand

Just bought your book on Smashwords, glad you're offering it DRM-free. I'll happily crack the DRM on an ebook so I can read it how I want to, but I'd much rather buy it DRM-free to begin with, even at a premium. Thanks for making that possible!

April 19, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterkryan

Wait, why aren't you minimizing your negative potential? And how did it take me so long to realize this phrase was saying the opposite of what I thought?

April 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

Damn you and your vile trickster ways, Scott! I swore I wasn't going to read the free sample of your book until I had more free time, because I thought I would get hooked. But Hypno-Scott was too powerful, and I ended up downloading and reading it last night. As soon as I got to the end, I bought the book and stayed up all night reading it. Now, I'm sleepy during the day.

Scott, your book obviously turned me into a vampire!

It was totally worth it, though. I loved the premise, the characters, the story, and your writing style. I haven't read anything that entertaining in a long time. I can't wait until you publish the next one!

I definitely will be recommending Off to be the Wizard to my friends!

Damn. That 3rd panel will haunt me for days.

Regarding the hypno-wheel, did I mention last time that this guy's home page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akiyoshi_Kitaoka has lots of pictures that twist or bulge or seem to be moving but they aren't. On the other hand, the Wikixedia version may have caused me a problem just now with Firefox, on Windows 7.
