Tor Books, an imprint of Tom Doherty Associates, LLC the largest publisher of science fiction in the world and 343 Industries are excited to announce a new initiative to coincide with the release of Halo: Silentium by acclaimed science fiction author Greg Bear.

Leading up to the release of Halo: Silentium (March 19, 2013), Tor and 343 Industries will be sending out encrypted communications via halowaypoint.com bulletins and forums, which will allow Halo fans to unlock additional content. There will also be embedded data in the text of the Halo: Silentium paperback and e-book editions.

These communications will begin now, and continue on halowaypoint.com leading up to the March 19th release of Halo: Silentium.

Tor Books has proudly partnered with Microsoft and 343 Industries to publish every book set in this iconic universe. The Halo franchise is an award-winning collection of properties that have grown into a global entertainment phenomenon. Beginning with the original Halo: Combat Evolved for Xbox in 2001, the rich fiction of the franchise has since inspired a series of blockbuster Xbox and Xbox 360 video games, New York Times best-selling novels, comic books, action figures, apparel and more. To date, the Halo franchise has sold more than 50 million copies to date, with sales eclipsing $3 billion over its lifetime. Halo 4 marks the beginning of a new saga in the iconic universe, as Master Chief returns to confront his own destiny and an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. Developed by 343 Industries exclusively for Xbox 360, Halo 4 released on Nov. 6, 2012, earning high marks from industry insiders and fans alike.

Nice! Looking forward to this one. The pacing of the last book was a bit slow but the story has been really good in these so far.

I've read all of the Nylund releases (I think), but I've skipped the ones by the other authors - and particularly have no interest in reading the ones that more or less retell the games. Might check a few more out though, Ghosts of Onyx was the last I read and that was awhile back.

I loved the Nylund ones and have read the two Halo books by Greg Bear and liked them.

Yeah, all the Nylund ones were good. His Crimson Skies stories were fun too, go check them out -- one of them's free: http://www.microsoft.com/games/crims...paladin_1.aspx

I quite enjoyed Contact Harvest as well -- probably as close to the source as you can get: Joseph Staten! It was a pleasant prequel to everything, and filled in a lot of gaps.

Karen Traviss managed to stink up some Star Wars books too.
