But just what is a Spark Furnace..?
A curious invention, whose precise origins have been lost in the mists of time, it is believed that only one of the handful of Spark Furnaces originally bequeathed to mankind remains in existence today.
Somewhat otherworldly in its design, the workings of the last remaining Spark Furnace are little understood, and its inner secrets are rumoured to be guarded by the surviving members of a long-forgotten society.
What we do know, however, is that the Spark Furnace is a truly amazing device, capable of extracting strands of psychic energy and inspiration from every dimension. In the hands of a skilled operator, it weaves together whole collections of entertainment, literature and interactive experiences into a seamless transmedia experience encompassing novels, comic books, videogames, television and movies.
Some say we have tapped into just a tiny fraction of its potential, while others fear what might happen if its harvested energy were to leak out. However all who have seen it at work agree that the huge influx of power required to keep it fuelled and smoothly running is repaid many times over by the fabulous creations which it brings forth at tantalisingly unpredictable intervals.
