Back in the olden, golden days of yesteryear (1996-2001) lived a brave young prophet of pyrotechnics. Our valiant hero invested countless hours and pounds of sweat and tears trying to perfect the art of pyrotechny. Additionally, he took copious notes, and tirelessly produced a series of publications documenting his battle with the breaks, both the good and bad. That publication by Larry Homan was titled "The Firemaker" Sadly, this series never achieved the fame it deserved. UNTIL NOW! A total of 21 issues, each between 48 and 64 pages in length, were produced. We found these deep in the archives and then whittled down the contents to 240 pages of "The Best of The Firemaker".
