Fantasy fans have even more reason to look forward to fall, now.
Philip Pullman will publish a novella previously only shared with the winning bidder at a charity auction in October.
The Guardian reports that the His Dark Materials author never intended to widely release Serpentine, written in 2004.
But the novella features Lyra Silvertongue as a teenager, and now that Pullman has released The Secret Commonwealth — in which Lyra is an adult — he felt like it made sense to offer up a tale that bridges the gap between the more recent novel and the original tale of Lyra as a youngster.
You can read more about Serpentine, which comes out October 15, in the Guardian.
