    It was love at first reading :)

    I’m a paranormal investigator and listen to a radio show called Speaking of Strange. JC Hutchins did and interview or they mentioned his book I don’t really remember. Then while listening to Seventh Son, I heard about Infected. Then I checked out the site and was totally hooked.  

    It’s the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.

    I found him on iTunes when I found the Podiobooks tab on iTunes. It was right after "Infection" ended. Listened to all of that, got hooked, listened to all his stories, and here I am now listening to them now over and over.

    I’m hooked on audio books. I’ve been through tons of books borrowed from the library on cassette, CD and MP3. I was out and went surfing the web for audio content and found this nifty little website called podiobooks.com I listened one of Sigler’s books and got hooked. I’ve listened to every Sigler book and short story I could find and am eagerly awaiting the next book. – Winston

    Avatar of Shawn Laing

    All I remember is that it around the time that the third episode of Earthcore was unleashed. I got directed to Scott’s work and I listened to the first episode to see what it was like and then BAM! I was hooked. Damn you, Sigler! Wait, I mean, bless you, my Dark Overlord for filling my life with such wonder. Please continue to enrich our lives.

      that trait, cantankerousness, gleefully shows up in his work. Isn’t that a great word?

    The very first issue I bought had The Rookie on the DVD. I was instantly converted to the cult

    I was listening to Slice of Scifi alot and just pondering getting back into storytelling through podcasting at the time. I remember thinking that Earthcore was unlike any story I’d EVER heard read aloud and thinking “wouldn’t it be great if someone could get away with reading a piece like this for a forensics/storytelling competition?” HAH!

    I had moved to Oregon October in 2005, My computer had been on the fritz for over a year before that, and I had listened to Live 365, and a few other sites that had sci-fi on line. Once I got my computer fixed and hooked up again, I went looking for free audio and sci-fi and started finding a few things. ( A lot had changed since 2003 and I started finding several people were actually writing original fiction for the web.) Sometime in December 2005, I found Earthcore on some site ( maybe it was Siglers) and was totally, hopelessly hooked.
    A true ” Junkie” is really what I am…….thank you Scott.

    I was misled into joining the beta clone army back in the day but quickly converted to siglerism in about the middle of earthcore and was one of the pioneer junkies.

    Hi, I’m stricnin and I am an addict. I started using early in the Earthcore days. Back then there were only two major Dealers. Scott and that guy that did Pocket and the pendent. It started out as just somthing to lissen to as cleaned my room. I didn’t really understand addicts or addiction until I found my self doing anything to have it with me. I tried hard to hide the addiction put when I pulled the Pioneer stereo out of my car to replace it with a small PC with wireless internet access I was no longer able to hide it. What’s worse is that by the time Infection came out I’d gotten my 11 year old son addicted! (Lord forgive me!) What have I done?

    Avatar of Dave Runta

    I discovered Scott before Itunes started carrying podcasts. I was using a podcatcher and was looking for interesting content. I think Podcast Pickle ranked him high and caused me to try it out pretty early into the Earthcore weekly release cycle. So I was probably onboard by Episode 7 or 8 and have been a faithful listener ever since.

    My son, Sam, is a huge Sigler fan. I let him listen to the Rookie and Earthcore…..but he is a little young (14) for Infection and Ancestor yet. Likely Nocturnal as well…..so he is NOT happy.

    I saw Scott at the 2007 Baycon. He hosted a few panels.

    I had awhile ago heard an interview he did on Infection but didn’t pay much attention and forgot about it. Then when I saw him at Baycon and he started talking I recognized him. After that I checked out his podcasts and was hooked.

    Avatar of Barbara Jungbauer

    I didn’t start listening to Sigler until the PDF for “Ancestor” hit the feeds. Everyone had that baby in their show notes and I said, “6397 podcasters, can’t be wrong” so I downloaded and read it overnight.

    Then I started editing and harassing Scott’s publisher with my findings – but that’s another story.

    After reading Ancestor I read Earthcore and started listening to “The Rookie”.

    I’ll admit it … I’m Scott’s little bitch. Gimmie my crack, you bastid.

    Avatar of Jesper Schultz

    I came into the podcast world only last year. I knew what it was of course, but the people telling me about it were kind’a artsy-fartsy, so I didn’t pay much attention.

    But – needing something other than music to keep my mind occupied during long runs, I happened to come across Podiobooks.

    Browsing through the site, I took notice of Earthcore – cool front pic (yes, that’ll do it for me every time), and possibly a nice level of blood’n’gore.

    It took about 1½ chapters, and I’ve ben a devoted Sigler-junkie ever since. I have been working hard to spread the infection, and the contageous ripples here in the north of Denmark are starting to spread – Sigler, We Hail You!!!

    Please Sigler, don’t be such a whiner – I need my fix, so don’t you DARE wait this long between books next time – pretty pretty pleeeaasseee.

    I happened to stumble onto Podiobooks while discovering podcasts and saw Ancestor. I thought it looked like Jerrasic Park (a book i LOVED), so i gave it a try. And you know what they say about drugs, once you’ve had one, you want to try more and different kinds. Thus, my becoming a Junkie.

    Work hooked me up with a free $50 gift card to Amazon. I have always loved reading horror novels and just happened to stumble on Ancestor. After reading the sypnosis and reviews I decided to give it and Earthcore a try. That was my first taste of Sigler and I must say I think I’m hooked now. I do believe I am in the fast lane to becoming a junkie.

    I’m tired of chasing my dreams. I’m just going to ask them where they are going and hook-up with them later.

    I do remember that when I started I was able to go back and listen to all of Earthcore with episodes back to back. Ah… those were glorious days. Not at all like the waiting we have to endure for the next sweet hit.

I subscribed then and have been hooked ever since.

    Along my eternal quest for free audiobooks and such, Lifehacker.com (badass site) lead me to podiobooks.com which was great, the giant bloody blade on the cover of earthcore was shiny and caught my attention, as well as the 7th Son clone revenge story, so I decided to go back and forth between Sigler and Hutchins, Earthcore, 7S: Descent, Ancestor, 7S: deceit, and then I finished up all of Scotts stories… Yipee!

    I learned of Scott Sigler this spring through Scepitcality. They had an interview with him just before the Ancestor release. Yes I know I am a late comer, blame it on being late to podcasting in general I would have converted to Siglerism much sooner hand I found podcasts sooner.

    In what I now know to be typical Junkie style I went out and emailed him over an error in the Ancestor PDF. He seriously pissed me off saying that the sun was coming up at 5:30am in November on BAFFIN F**^^*ing Island. I work the the north its dark at 7am now, and I don’t thing there is any place in Canada where the sun is up at 5:30am in November.

    I did not get in to his podcasts for a few months after that, I think I was running low and he came up on an other podcast so I gave him a shot. I was listing to Earth Core, infection and The Rookie all at once, after I had finished with Ancester. I think it might have been one of Mur Lafferty’s podcasts that lead me to Silger the second time.

    I decided to give podiobooks a try, and started with the most popular one that they had at the time, Earthcore. Well, I think everyone knows how the story goes from there, I got hooked and started scouring the net after that for every last Sigler story I could find.

    Avatar of David Lodge

    My friend elmofromok suggested Earthcore and 7th Son to me when I was looking for something to listen to while I made the long drive to help my parents while my dad was in the hospital. I liked the sound of Earthcore’s premise better, so I fired it up when I got on the road. I was so into the story that I don’t remember the 4 hours between Oklahoma City and Dallas. That was the easiest that drive has ever been.

    I lived in the Bajio region of Mexico – Morelia, Irapuato, Leon and our home, Cueramaro – for two very happy years. When I would travel by bus between the cities where I was working and living, I started listening to podcasts. I came across PodioBooks and from there, found Scott’s work and many others.

    It has been a great ride, even if I’m not taking the bus as much anymore! And I am always looking forward to more….

    Vera Nazarian sold “Mount Dragon” to _Escape Pod_ and told us about it, thus introducing me to podcasting and the wonder of having SFF to listen to on long, cross-country drives. _Escape Pod_ led me to Mur Lafferty and _I Should Be Writing,_ whereon she interviewed Scott, who either was finishing up _EarthCore_ at the time or had just finished it. I thought, Let’s see…no iPod, but at 45 minutes an episode this’ll fit on a CD, and hokey smokes, I can AFFORD this! So I downloaded _EarthCore_ from podiobooks.com, and the rest is a tragic tale of dissipation, substance abuse, and wasted youth.

    I think it must have been from one of the Dragon Page podcasts.. Most probably Wingin’ it, back when Sci-Fi was on the menu.

    Don’t remember if it was comment in show notes or a story as both have happened. I think it was Episode 1 of Pseudopod which was Bag Man, but it could have been mentioned on Escape Pod that I heard it first.

    I’m pretty sure that I heard about Siggie on CC Chapman’s Accident Hash first. There or on Michael and Evo’s Wingin’ It, when that show was still being distributed.

    I just remember that whoever I heard it from had this manic edge to his voice. “YOU HAVE GOT TO LISTEN TO THIS!” So, I did. There was NO turning back at that point.

    I first heard about it from one of the presenters on The Signal podcast (http://www.serenityfirefly.com). Listened my way through Earthcore and Ancestor from podiobooks, then caught up with Infection while it was live. Loved the Rookie too :)

    Earthcore and Ancestor now also grace my bookshelf.

    The first podcast novel I started listening to was…um……7th Son *ducks to avoid the objects being thrown at him*.

    On Hutch’s website I found a link to scottsigler.net, and caught a promo to ‘Infection’ in the show. So I checked it out, and now I’m HOOKED! After getting caught up on ‘Infection,’ I went back and listened to ‘Earthcore’ and ‘Ancestor’ back to back…it was almost too much to absorb but I did it, damn it. :P

    I actually found Earthcore on Podiobooks.com. I had just gotten my ipod (in March) and I found podiobooks.com when I was researching getting my pod. I was super excited and I subscribed to a whole slew of podiobooks. I then had to make a trip to Louisiana (I live in ohio) and so on my long trip, I picked this book from the list of podcasts on my ipod…. and the rest is history. I’ve listened to all his books and as much of his short fiction as I could find. Love IT!
