Pyrotechnicon-by-Adam-Browne

Adam Browne, whose The Tame Animals of Saturn was published last year by Peggy Bright Books, is looking to produce a short (ten minute) film based on his deliciously-idiosyncratic debut novel Pyrotechnicon: being a True Account of Cyrano de Bergerac’s further adventures among the States and Empires of the Stars. But even shoestring budgets can add up, so he’s holding a Pozible fundraiser to raise $2000(AUD) to provide a special-effects budget for the film.

If you’ve read Pyrotechnicon, you’ll likely remember it as a masterwork of gloriously weird spacegoing-ness, brimming with invention, speculation, and wordplay. If you haven’t read it, it’s still available from the coeur de lion website, in both print and ebook formats; I can wholeheartedly recommend it. And if you’d like to help make a film version possible, please throw a few pennies into the hat.
