Those sorted folk over at HisDarkMaterials.org have linked to a Yahoo movie about the making of the daemons in the forthcoming film. They do look interesting and well done but I reserve judgement until seeing the entire film. The Guardian notes from the Bookseller suggests that we will be getting another episode from the world, Once Upon a Time in the North, in a clothbound hardback a la Lyra’s Oxford. Apparently it tells the tale of Lee Scoresby’s first meeting with Iorek Byrnison. They also note that the long talked about (and delayed) Book of Dust ought to be published in 2009.
