Philip Pullman - Az ​arany iránytű
Lyra ​világában háború készülődik azok között, akik tudatlanságban tartanák a népet és akik harcolni akarnak a szabadságért. Lyra az események sűrűjében találja magát, amikor nagybátyja, Lord Asriel Oxfordba érkezik, és a lány legjobb barátjának, Rogernek nyoma vész. Lyra megtudja, hogy Rogert titokzatos társaság ragadta el, amely állítólag kísérleteket végez a gyerekeken. Hogy megtalálja a barátját, északra utazik, a páncélos medvék és boszorkányklánok földjére, ahol Asriel egy párhuzamos világba próbál hidat építeni. Amit azonban Lyra nem tud és nem is tudhat meg, hogy cselekedeteinek nem csupán a saját világára, de minden más világra nézve is következményei lesznek. Az arany iránytű 50 nyelven jelent meg, és több mint 20 millió példányban kelt el világszerte, a jelenlegi már a 4. magyar kiadása.

Philip Pullman - I ​was a Rat!
“I ​Was a Rat!” So insists a scruffy boy named Roger. Maybe it’s true. But what is he now? A terrifying monster running wild in the sewers? The Daily Scourge is sure of it. A victim of “Rodent Delusion”? The hospital nurse says yes. A lucrative fairground freak? He is to Mr. Tapscrew. A champion wriggler and a budding thief? That’s what Billy thinks. Or just an ordinary small boy, though a little ratty in his habits? Only three people believe this version of the story. And it may take a royal intervention—and a bit of magic—to convince the rest of the world. Set against the backdrop of a Royal Wedding—and a playful parody of the press, I Was a Rat! is a magical weaving of humor, fairy tale, and adventure.

Philip Pullman - A ​Word or Two About Myths
From ​time to time someone comes up with the idea that there are only seven stories in the world. Or only three, or only eleven, or whatever. Or else they claim to have discovered that every different story is a variant of one basic story, such as Cinderella, or the quest for the Holy Grail. And they find no lack of listeners, because our interest in how stories work and in what sort of stories there could be is almost as powerful as our appetite to hear them told. We could argue about it for ever, and our pleasure would never pall. But what is certain is that writers and novelists and poets, people who have a visceral need to tell stories, find themselves coming back again and again to those narrative shapes and forms and structures we call myths. There’s something sensuous about the attraction they hold, something almost physically satisfying about their shapes; we like to run them through our minds, we like to stroke their contours, we like to arrange the light so that it brings out their features and throws interesting and form-revealing shadows. A myth is intoxicating, because it is something other than just a story. In one way, it’s the very opposite of poetry. Robert Frost said that poetry is what gets lost in translation: we could say that a myth is a story that is not lost, or harmed, or diminished as it sheds the skin of one language and assumes that of another, because, as C. S. Lewis pointed out, a myth is a story whose power is independent of its telling. Our first experience of the story of Orpheus and Eurydice would affect us just as strongly in whatever version we came across it, because it’s the shape of the events that contains the power, and not merely the language. This is a fact designed to keep writers humble; the brilliance and dash of our sentences are of little importance beside the events we try to describe. It’s a reminder that most of our readers still regard our words as a window and not as a surface: they want to see through them to the great and tragic forms acting out the passionate drama of the story. The cosmic events the characters repeat in this driven and compulsive way are far more interesting than our prose style. Nevertheless, each new writer does bring something never seen before to a story that might have been told a thousand times. It might never have been seen from quite this angle, it might never have been suffused with quite this emotional tone; the intelligence that plays over the events might never have glittered with quite this silvery wit. This is what makes the telling, and retelling, and retelling of myths such an endlessly refreshing struggle, such a demanding privilege, such a humbling joy. (This essay was written specially for The Myths series and is only available in the original hardback box set.)
