His Dark Materials Digital Prequel Novella Gets Physical Release This September – Cinelinx


Fans of the world of Philip Pullman Its dark materials can add collectorsa new prequel previously only available digitally, in their libraries.

While I sometimes appreciate the convenience of e-books, there’s simply no substitute for a physical copy (much like I feel for movies/games). This is especially true for franchise fans who like to display their books. As such, I’m delighted to see that Penguin Random House is offering Philip Pullman collectors physical treatment.

The short story, originally released in 2015 as an ebook and audiobook, serves as a prequel to the Its dark materials trilogy, giving readers a glimpse into the villainous Mrs. Coulter’s past life.

The gothic tale offers a glimpse of the young girl who will become the dangerous Mrs. Coulter, a villain from Pullman’s beloved His Dark Materials sequence. THE COLLECTORS is the perfect treat for Pullman fans and a dark and gripping entry point for new readers to His Dark Materials, now an HBO original series starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Dafne Keen, Andrew Scott and Ruth Wilson.

On a cold winter’s night at a university in Oxford, two men are chatting by the fire. Their conversation turns to two unusual pieces of art that one of them recently added to his collection. But these pieces – a painting of a striking young woman and a bronze sculpture of a creepy-looking monkey – are linked in mysterious and unlikely ways, and art collectors are about to get caught up in a story that has crossed time and worlds. . . . .

THE COLLECTORS will be published in a beautiful little hardcover edition and illustrated throughout by Tom Duxbury in his black and white linocut artwork.

His dark materials: collectors will be released in hardcover on September 20, 2022.
