 Our July contest closes in three days! If you’d like the chance to win a signed copy of The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ (or the two unsigned copies we have as runner-up prizes) enter now!

  

In Northern Lights/The Golden Compass, Lyra is given the truth-telling alethiometer; in the Subtle Knife, Will acquires a knife with intentions of its own; in The Amber Spyglass, Mary makes a spyglass that lets her see something she couldn’t before. The events in each book are shaped by these artefacts. We want YOU to come up with a fourth artefact of your own! Tell us what object you’ve come up with, and in one sentence only, explain what its abilities are.

Send your entry in to contest@bridgetothestars.net, with the subject line “July Contest” by 11:59pm GMT on the 21st of July. The entries will be judged anonymously and the best ones will receive our awesome prizes! Only one entry per person allowed. This contest is open to everyone except BridgeToTheStars.net staff. Good luck!

Canongate have published a new edition of The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ this month, due to the book’s success.

The controversial novel retold the story of Jesus as if he were two people, twin brothers; Jesus, a godly man and Christ, a power-hungry one. And was one of the most talked-about books of last year. It has sold over ten thousand copies since its release in 2010.

The book is available on amazon.co.uk and on Kindle.

Below Pullman talks about controvery and his right to write about whatever he likes.
