A chilling Gothic tale with a revealing glimpse of the iconic Mrs. Coulter--one of Philip Pullman's most enigmatic characters. This companion story to His Dark Materials is now in print for the first time in a beautiful gift edition.

In this darkly delicious tale, internationally acclaimed author Philip Pullman invites readers to meet the mysterious girl who will one day become the sinister Mrs. Coulter.

On a cold winter's night, two art collectors are settled before a fire in the senior common room of a college in Oxford, discussing two new unusual pieces--a portrait of a striking young woman and a bronze sculpture of a fearsome monkey. How could they imagine that they are about to be caught in the cross-fire of a story that has traveled across time and worlds. . . .

Watch the HBO adaptation of His Dark Materials, an original series starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Dafne Keen, Andrew Scott, and Ruth Wilson!

The Collector is a novella extra from Philip Pullman's Golden Compass series. This Novella gives us a glimpse into the young girl that will eventually become the scary adult, Mrs. Coulter. A creepy tale involving two works of art that are always together but are also linked to some mysterious deaths. The story is gripping and fast-paced, adding just a bit more depth to the original series; if your looking for a short tale and are a fan of the Pullman Golden Compass series, pick this gem up.
