Sarah Kinson interviews Philip Pullman for the Guardian. Now that's good news on any day. But, his answer to the last question just sent me to the ceiling. Here it is in all its glory:
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A sequel to His Dark Materials. But I can't say more than that. It's going to be a long book, and I'm only part way through it.
I can't adequately express my emotional reaction to this news. There simply are not enough exclamations or exclamation points at the ready. I'm just going to have to sit with this for awhile.
