Wizard magic is like playing a classical symphony: careful, precise, intellectual. You study hard, practice endless hours, and don't deviate from the instructions in the book.

Sorcerer magic is like jazz: wild, driven by emotion and what you feel deep inside, improvisational and create and unique to the performer.

Warlock magic is like the blues: you get good at it because you literally sold your soul to the Devil late one night at a deserted crossroads, then you regret that bargain.

Is the 30% off of my books with coupon code ILUVMICHAEL not good enough? Do you want to avoid putting extra money in my pocket?

No Starch is having a Day Against DRM sale. RIGHT2READ40 gets you 40% off.

I love The Design Mechanism's books but dear $DEITY if they would get a different font for their text:
