“When you look at what C.S. Lewis is saying, his message is so anti-life, so cruel, so unjust. The view that the Narnia books have for the material world is one of almost undisguised contempt. At one point, the old professor says, ‘It’s all in Plato’ — meaning that the physical world we see around us is the crude, shabby, imperfect, second-rate copy of something much better. I want to emphasize the simple physical truth of things, the absolute primacy of the material life, rather than the spiritual or the afterlife.

[The New York Times interview, 2000]”
Philip Pullman

Marts  (Thinker) Hi Megan, good to meet you...


Eugenia Thanks for friending, can't wait to read your book!


Davonna Juroe Hello Megan,

Thanks for the friendship. MADMAN'S DAUGHTER looks fascinating. I love YA's that take history and blend it with a classic, especially an H.G. Wells story. Good luck to you with the recent release! Very exciting!


İlkim Hello, thanks for the friendship :) I loved Madman's Daughter, waiting for the next ones :)
