Philip Pullman is an English best-selling author. He has written over 20 books, most notably, the His Dark Materials fantasy novel trilogy, the first entry of which was adapted into the feature film The Golden Compass. [1]
In an article from The New Yorker he is quoted as saying, "I don’t profess any religion; I don’t think it’s possible that there is a God; I have the greatest difficulty in understanding what is meant by the words ‘spiritual’ or ‘spirituality’..." [2]
He is described in a 09-Mar-2004 article in the London Times as a "a self-confessed atheist whose trilogy ends with the death of God. His work has infuriated many religious believers and conservative commentators." [3]
Peter Hitchens calls Pullman "[T]he most dangerous author in Britain" in a The Mail on Sunday, 27-Jan-2002. [4]
