Topic: Halo, no unanswerable questions!

Dear Greg,

I've read Eon and Eternity, and when I heard you were writing books set in the Halo universe my jaw hit the floor.

Recognition of the artistic merits of video-games is something I am passionate about, and having a brilliant author such as yourself lend your considerable talents to the genre really helps support a medium that gets a lot of bad press.

You are an inspiration to my own writing (meager though my efforts have been[although if anyone is interested, check out my website at http://gamerfiction.blogspot.com.au/ ]).

I will finish with some questions, but nothing you need fear Forerunner reprisals over.

1. Would you like to write more novels set in the Halo universe after Forerunner Saga 3?

2. Given the opportunity, would you consider writing a Halo game? Or any game for that matter?

Thank you, for your wonderful work, and for reading this!

Regards,
Matt

It's been terrific fun working with the good folks at 343, as well as interacting with the Halo fans. But the foreseeable future, I'm going to be involved in my own projects. But who knows? This much fun is hard to beat.

As far as I'm concerned, you are welcome back to the Halo universe any time, and I'm looking forward to your future projects.

I must admit, Greg. Cryptum and Primordium are by FAR the best written Halo novels. They don't just feel like cheap tie-in novels, they have a life of their own and really speak volumes about the deep Halo universe. I would love your involvement in future Halo titles whether it be writing new books or even just consulting other authors, or consulting the writers of the games.
