Hi All!
I've been a member of several HDM communities for awhile, but never posted to introduce myself or anything yet. I'm Caitlin, and I read these books this year, in ninth grade. I actually heard about the books when I was in, like, fourth grade, but didn't get around to reading them until then. I absolutely adore them, and have read each three times so far. Three out of three of my closest pals from school are also hooked on HDM.
Now, I'm not really into RPG's, but I think it might be fun to start one on LJ for hDM. Is there already one, and, if there isn't, how many of you would be interested in my making a community for it? The members could comment with the character they wanted, and I would okay it. Then they could make a journal for that character, add the other characters, and all that stuff. Then, like, every two weeks we could write a chapter from our character's point of view, in installments or whatever. It'd be lots of fun, I think!
Let me know what you think...Thanks a lot!

Hey, this is my first post/entry in this community. I'm reading the Amber Spyglass right now, and am at the part where Lyra tells Will she loves him. On page 417 (American Edition) Will says, "-when you were asleep on the mountain before she took you away, I told Pan-" I've been searching for this part of the series. I want to re-read that scene, and I can't remember the page, or even the book. So could someone please email me (binomin_3_3@hotmail.com) or something, because this is getting frustrating, I've been looking forever.

Newbie here. Not new to the books though, I read the first one shortly after it came out! Hard-back and everything.

Um, anyway, I'm a 23 year-old, almost finished with university, lives in Leeds, England...and that's about it.

By the way, is The Northern Lights called 'the Golden Compass' in America?

well blow me down with a feather...
Well I never.
I never knew there was a community for Philip Pullman.
But I shouldn't be surprised, because everything end ups in live journal eventually, and Pullman, amazing...

Well, I love His Dark Materials, too.
I also like the Sally Lockhart books too, but never quite as much.
I became hooked because one of the teachers in my school recommended them to me. I fell in love with the books, and also, incidentally, with the teacher, but while that obsession went nowhere, my love for His Dark Materials remains constant and true.

I want a daemon!
Doesn't everyone just want a daemon?
To never be alone... and yet never in a crowd.
I cried for a month when reading the Amber Spyglass.
In fact, I cried during all the books.

I want a daemon!

So there you are.
I'm a new member of this community.
I have a section of my bookshelf dedicated to Philip Pullman.

Go on, give in to your obsessions...

Elloishness, I'mm Stars, and I'm... relatively new to this community.

Okay, this isn't HDM, but it's still Phillip Pullman: Does anyone else LOVE the Sally Lockheart stuff? I've just hijacked the books from my friends again for my GCSE study leave.
I could study, but that's just so passe!

I like Ruby in the Smoke loads, especially since it mentions the place I've lived all my life- CHATHAM!
Okay, it's incredibly dull, but we're in a book!

Love to all,
~ Stars ^^

Want to see philip pullman?
he is giving a very important speech next year, the topic of which has not been disclosed. This is big news.

The 2002 May Hill Arbuthnot Honor Lecture
Queens College Graduate School of Library and Information Studies, Flushing, N.Y., will be the site for the 2002 May Hill Arbuthnot Honor Lecture, to be delivered by award-winning author Philip Pullman. "Philip Pullman's versatility as a writer for children and young adults makes him a particularly exciting choice as lecturer," said 2002 Arbuthnot Lecture Committee Chair Sara Miller. He writes contemporary fiction, Victorian thrillers, plays, picture books, and has surpassed himself with his amazing, prize-winning fantasy, the HIS DARK MATERIALS trilogy.

The only publicly funded graduate library school in the New York metropolitan area, Queens College GSLIS is currently developing a certificate program for pre- and post- MLS students in public library youth services. In coordinating the lecture, Queens College GSLIS will work closely with the Queens Borough Public Library, the busiest public library in the country.

"We are delighted that we are the recipient of this distinguished lecture,"said Dr. Marianne Cooper, director of the Graduate School of Library and Information Studies. "Professors Mary K. Chelton and Karen Patricia Smith will be working very hard in collaboration with the Queens Borough Public Library to make this event a big success for the New York metropolitan area and ALA."

The lecture will take place on the Queens College Campus at Le Frak Auditorium, at 3:00 pm on Saturday, April 6 2002.

Reader's Guide Questions?
I thought it would be interesting to actually have live discussions about the book. There is a lot of Philosophical texts that were alluded to within the series, like Socrates, Dante and especially Milton. Would you all be interested in Discussing this?

A good starter question would be:

From The Golden Compass:

On pages 89-90, the General Oblation Board is explained in reference to the historical sacrifice of children to cloistered life. "Oblation" refers to the act of making a religious offering. What offering does the General Oblation Board make and to whom?
