Enjoyed this while wasps inspected my coffee on a cafe terrace this morning. Pretty great that Everyman Library got to do a collected edition of ‘His Dark Materials’. As usual they do a great job. There’s an introduction (will read after the novels), a foreword by Pullman, a fun chronology, and something that Pullman calls ‘lantern slides’ dotted through, which are micro short stories of just one paragraph. Anyway, I’m onto The Subtle Knife, having read the first one in Danish (a fun way to learn the language). The new Pullman novel set in this world (a prequel I think) is on order, so I’m ‘catching up’ before it’s released. Hope that you’re having a lovely Sunday.
