  New Dark Materials book on the way
Updated 06 April 2003, 12.02
The Amber Spyglass
Author Philip Pullman has revealed he is working on a new book in the Dark Materials series.

He's already written three books about Lyra and Will and their adventures, and now a fourth is on its way in October - called Lyra's Oxford.

The Times newspaper's website reports that you don't need to have read the other three books to understand this one.

The book will look a bit like a small bundle of material that has somehow slipped between Lyra's universe and our own.

It will be illustrated with specially printed pull-out maps of Lyra's Oxford.

David Fickling, the publisher, said: "This is one of the finest pieces of writing that Philip Pullman has produced."

The third book in the series - The Amber Spyglass - was named Whitbread Book of the Year last year, the biggest book award in the country.
