  1. That’s an interesting claim from Pullman in light of his statement to the Washington Post: “I’m trying to undermine the basis of Christian belief,” says Pullman.

  2. I think it’s a lovely cover, but the bevel and emboss on the title just ruins it a bit for me.

  3. “Philip Pullman, author of The Golden Compass, hits back at critics who accuse him of peddling “candy-coated atheism”. “I am a story teller,” he said. “If I wanted to send a message I would have written a sermon.””

    It is to laugh. Poor man. Poor, poor man.

    I hope he someday repudiates AMBER SPYGLASS, and sits down and writes a real sequel to the first two books, something that actually does tell a story instead of preaching a message. I was expecting the subtle knife to kill God, since that was the prophecy; I was expecting a war in heaven, since that was Asrael’s ambition. Instead we got a sermon on how religion hinders children from having sex, and God is Bad. Huhn?

    The three-part series culminates in an epic battle in which God dies – at the hand of a child.

    Wait wait wait…are you accusing Pullman of changing his position??

    Why would he do that?

    I wouldn’t have any thing to do with a movie coming out this Christmas would it?

  6. It always tickles me when religious zealots reveal just how thin they know their particular patch of ice to be.
