True to my word, here I am telling you a little about the book I’m writing on Pullman. The focus, of course, will be on his magnum opus, His Dark Materials. It will be the second in a series of ‘thinking fan’s guides’ from Damaris Publishing. I was a contributor to the first book, Matrix Revelations: a thinking fan’s guide to the Matrix trilogy which was the first book to be published on the entire trilogy after the third film had been released – we managed to publish it in 40 days. For more on this, have a look at the Damaris website.

The Pullman book is due to be published in September 2004 but I’ve got a lot of work to do on it yet. I had hoped to see the National Theatre two-part production but the tickets sold much quicker than I’d anticipated having decided I couldn’t see it before Christmas. I’ll try to get to the revival of it later in the year even though the book will be out by then.

I’m going to try to be more regular with blogging (I could hardly be less regular!) so I’ll say more about the book soon I guess.
