Okay, bad pun, but we are very excited about the arrival of the proof of Pyrotechnicon in hardback, beautifully produced by Lightning Source. Finally the book is tangible. For all you book fetishists out there, the cover is pleasingly matte finish and vivid, the cloth binding is dove grey with gold embossing, the paper is thick book creme, the internal fonts are Garamond and Charlemagne, the illustrations are excellent and the finished article feels and smells wonderful.
Meanwhile our daring ebook test jockey Mark Rossiter has given the ebook version (with illustrations) a very thorough shakedown on multiple platforms and, unlike the waverider, she held together beautifully (NASA, we are available for a consult).
So with the proof approved and beta-testing done we are fast approaching the moment we let you folks buy this surprising, funny and amazing tale. More news soon.
