In 2004, he was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. It has recently been announced that The Book of Dust, the much anticipated new book from Mr. Pullman, also set in the world of His Dark Materials, will be published as a major work in three parts, with the first part to arrive in October 2017.

Now I want more! I just love Lyra and Pan! Ohh.. If you're thinking of reading this before reading His Dark Materials I should advise to do otherwise... There are too many hints as to what happened in the books... So read His Dark Materials first!show more
