Halo: Cryptum Novel Announced

New Halo novel unveiled
Tor Books sent out a press release announcing Halo: Cryptum, the first in a trilogy of novels by Hugo and Nebula award-winning author Greg Bear. Halo: Cryptum will begin the first deep exploration into the time of the Forerunners, the creators and builders of the Halos. Worshipped by the Covenant as gods, their engineering relics pepper the galaxy, and their connection to humanity remains unanswered. Devoted fans of both the books and games will discover for themselves the story behind one of the great mysteries of the Halo universe: the complete disappearance of the Forerunners from existence. Halo: Cryptum will be published in January 2011.
