I greatly enjoy your novel Halo: Cryptum. I was wondering if you are intending on explaining the origin of the forerunners. We know their home planet. But I need a picture or a description to explain what they look like. (I enjoy literature because I can choose what the character looks like but because we all know what Brutes or Elites look like I find myself incapable of imagining the species)
Are you going to delve more in the world of Halo. AKA the Halo Story Bible. Also will you perhaps explore with the Precursors? Some people may find it irrelevant but to me the Precursors are indirectly responsible of the Forerunner-Flood War.
Thank you for reading this and if perhaps taking the time to write back. If you do not I understand :).

Hello, Justin! Thanks for writing. I'm well into volume 2 of the Forerunner Saga and will be touching on a number of these topics. Interesting what you're saying about the Precursors...!

The last words in "Cryptum" make it seem like Precursors are indeed the one who unleashed the Flood on the universe.
"Cryptum" was a great book. In my head there are some contradictions between the behavior of Didact (in the book) vs. the Didact (in Terminals of Halo 3).
However, everything lines up so nicely.
I am eagerly awaiting books 2 and 3!

More surprises in store, Alex! Thanks.
