Hello Mr. Bear. I would just like to say thank you for writing the Forerunner Saga! You are a great writer. Before I read the first book of this saga, I wasn't a die hard Halo fan. I played the video games and all, but never got much into it. This book, however, changed me. It is a very fascinating book and I just completed it. I will be reading the next one right away since this story has captured my attention so much. This is by far the best science fiction book I have ever read and one of the best books in general I have ever read. The amazing details you put into it gives me a great image of what everything looks like. It is like watching a movie. The story also is very intriguing. Just one question though: Do you think that this saga is a good place to begin the Halo series or would you think it would be better to go back when the Precursors were still around? That, of course, is a long time ago, but is there a story that could be told which would be the true, true, beginning of Halo? Just wanted to get your input on that. Thanks, again, for such a riveting masterpiece.
