On Pullman's "His Dark Materials"

Last evening I finished reading an omnibus edition of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy (review to come very soon, I promise, but I have to spend today doing thesis revisions, so that and this week's links & reviews will be up later tonight or tomorrow). Part of the reason I read the books now is that the first movie is coming out shortly (next week, I think) and I wanted to be able to watch that with the stories under my belt and fresh in my mind. This morning I discovered an interesting Times (UK) special section on Pullman, his books and the upcoming movie, so I pass that along as a sort of teaser. You could spend most of the day in there, I think.
