Mr. Bear,
Let me start by saying I very much enjoyed the first two books in the Forerunner Saga and I hope to be reading more of your works in the future.
Now, I have a few questions. First: is there an ETA on the third Forerunner book? I understand you probably get that question at least twice a day, but I haven't found any information on this and I desperately want to know. Second: are you working with 343 Industries as you write these? It seemed there were problems with the writers and Bungie because there were discrepancies between the book and the games. Minor most of the time, but they were still there and I think it would be unfortunate if you wrote the fantastic lore you did and it was ignored by 343. Third:... well, I'd rather not spoil the emd of Primordium for people who haven't read it, so scratch the third question. I look forward to the possibility of hearing from you in the future Mr. Bear.

Thanks, Dartanian! Forerunner #3 is in progress right now! Early 2013 is the target pub date.

Alot of the discrepancies from the books were involving firepower calcs( the ".4 tenths" speed of light bit from Fall of Reach for the Super MAC cannons is a big one...)
Past that, I think the universe has been relatively consistent.
Hopefully Mr.Bear keeps of the great work and doing an excellent job at making the Forerunners the ultra-powerful civilization we envision them to be and the Flood as deadly and virulent as we can imagine.
