Books: Fantastical tales
Philip Pullman created a new young adult classic with the "His Dark Materials" trilogy. Now he's putting his spin on some classics with "Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm: A New English Version."
And if you like some tech in your fantastic tales, check out "Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore" by Robin Sloan -- he works 21st-century gizmos into the story of a mysterious bookstore that may contain the code that unlocks the secret of eternal life.
