Philip Pullmans books Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass, making up the trilogy known as His Dark Materials, have been a massive success with children and adults alike. This unofficial guide gives a brief biography of Pullman himself, an explanation of the trilogys set-up and synopses of the three books and the follow-up novella Lyras Oxford. This is followed by a gazetteer, an A-Z guide to the people, places and items in these great books. Including notes on the publication history and availability of the books and their foreign editions, Dark Matters then concludes with information on the talking books, the radio plays, the National Theatre production and the current status of the films, making it the indispensable guide to Lyras Wills worlds.
