Jeri BS: Philip Pullman's books (16) RE: BS: Philip Pullman's books 28 Sep 21


Keb, did someone other than you bring up "anti-God"?

The Dark Materials books are definitely anti-organized religion, and money-grabbing, power-wielding ways, and I agree that he revels in the Question, the mystery and the possibilities.

As for the more recent books Dave mentioned, Wikipedia says "Another trilogy, The Book of Dust, includes characters and events from the His Dark Materials. Pullman has said that the new series is neither sequel, nor prequel, but an "equel".[38] The first book, La Belle Sauvage, was published in October 2017 and the second book, The Secret Commonwealth, in October 2019." So there's another term: "equel".
