After his father's death, Will discovers that Lyra has been kidnapped by Mrs Coulter, and he is approached by two angels requesting his aid.

This 2008 novella serves as a prequel to His Dark Materials and focuses on the Texan aeronaut Lee Scoresby as a young man. Will has found a small window between Cittagazze (a place where children roam unchecked but invisible Specters suck the spirit out of adults) and his Oxford, which, with its Burger Kings and cars, is frighteningly different from the Oxford Lyra knows.

Her fate is strangely linked to his own, and together they must find the most powerful weapon in all the worlds. The novels, which have gained a strong following of both teens and adults, have supernatural components, including armored polar bears and an element known as “dust,” but are rooted in concepts of physics, philosophy, and theology. Northern Lights - first edition, fourth impression, 1995; The Subtle Knife - first edition, fifth impression, 1997; The Amber Spyglass - first edition, first impression, 2000.

Pullman has identified three major literary influences on His Dark Materials: the essay On the Marionette Theatre by Heinrich von Kleist, [13] the works of William Blake, and, most important, John Milton's Paradise Lost, from which the trilogy derives its title.

Malone to attempt to communicate with the particles, and when she does they tell her to travel into the Cittàgazze world.

Birds mysteriously rescue her and Pan, and she makes the acquaintance of an alchemist, formerly the witch's lover. A popular and successful series following the coming of age of two children as they wander through a series of parallel universes.

Vol I is FIRST EDITION fourth issue with numbers 4-10 and Volumes II and III are FIRST EDITIONS, first issues, with complete number string. But now as the rain builds, the world around Malcolm and Asta it seems is set to become increasingly far from ordinary. Will's fate is strangely linked with hers; and together they must find a powerful and secret object which people from many worlds would kill to possess. In that world, Scoresby dies defending Parry from the forces of the Church, while Parry succeeds in reuniting with his son moments before being murdered by Juta Kamainen, a witch whose love John had once rejected. Some threads are not neatly tied up, some disappear for a while and we have only a line or two to say what happened, and there are some unanswered questions.The third and final eight-episode series premiered first on HBO on 5 December 2022, and on 18 December 2022 in the UK. Subsequent to this release by Everyman, Pullman has, as of March 2022, published two further full length novels in this series - a prequel (in which Lyra is just a small child) and a long awaited sequel in which Lyra is now a young woman and a scholar studying at Jordan College, where Northern Lights begins. Unusually, Everyman have not put a picture of Pullman on the front cover of the book but chosen a theme from the books which is both charming and appropriate. Lyra's alethiometer is stolen by Lord Boreal alias Sir Charles Latrom, an ally of Mrs Coulter who has found a way to Will's Oxford and established a home there. He has also won many distinguished prizes, including the Carnegie Medal for The Golden Compass (and the reader-voted "Carnegie of Carnegies" for the best children's book of the past seventy years); the Whitbread (now Costa) Award for The Amber Spyglass; a Booker Prize long-list nomination (The Amber Spyglass); Parents' Choice Gold Awards (The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass); and the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, in honor of his body of work.
