An insight into the man and his books

Philip Pullman's writing is full of mystery and adventure - of parallel universes, daemons and armoured bears. The His Dark Materials trilogy is set to become a major motion picture event with the release of the first film, The Golden Compass. Darkness Visible explores this epic world and the diverse creative influences of Pullman's brilliant work.

Written by acclaimed critic Nicholas Tucker, and packed with exclusive photos, illustrations and fresh material from recent interviews, this is both a celebration of Philip Pullman and an absorbing guide to all of his books.
