  • A well done guide to the persons, places, and references of Philip Pullman's Dark Materials
    From Amazon

    If you're weak on your Milton, Blake, Lewis, and Elliot, this will help out with the references. It's a fun read, or a useful reference, your choice. Lance Parkins is best known for his work, fiction and non-fiction, involving Dr. Who. Mark Jones I hadn't known anything about before seeing this book, but he seems to be a well-known writer of guidebooks and online materials.

  • Superb stuff
    From Amazon

    An excellent guide to a challenging series. The best bit is an A-Z of all the names, places and concepts. I learned a lot about Blake, CS Lewis and other people Pullman is influenced by. This is a very readable guide, and could also be useful for anyone writing a paper on the His Dark Materials books.
