    New Narnia?

    What do you guys think of expanding the Narnia series? Neil Gaiman wanted to write them.

    Agreed. Sanctioned fan fiction is still fan fiction.

    Gaiman has in fact written a short story set in the Narnia Mythos, "The Problem of Susan". I highly recommend the thing.

    A short story or two set in the Narnia world may not be too bad, but adding another novel would be blasphemous.

    On a side note, I just picked up the The Subtle Knife today. It's the second book of the His Dark Materials trilogy. How do you guys feel HDM compares to Narnia as a rebuttal?

    Gaiman's short story is deliberately blasphemous.

    As a rebuttal? I don't see it as such, other than as two sides of a larger religious argument. I'd not considered it as a direct rebuttal, could you expand on that?

    Religious aruguments aside, personally I find Pullman's books are far more complex and intelligent in many ways than Lewis' although contextually that may be unfair.
