My Thoughts on “The Golden Compass”

I’ve been doing a lot of radio interviews about Auralia’s Colors, and questions about Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass keep coming up.

I’ve been planning a sort of once-and-for-all blog post about the controversy, but for now you’ll find a few of my responses to these questions posted here. (The transcript has several errors in it, but I can’t do anything about that. Still, you’ll get the basic idea of my response. And where it seems I’ve “quoted” the book, that’s only a spur-of-the-moment paraphrase, not a direct quote.)
