Topic: Splendid!

Hello Mr. Bear -
I've been meaning to write you for some time. I just wanted to thank you for writing these stories. We as a community have been chomping at the bit for more background on
Forerunners, let alone Precursors. You've given us a lot to digest, and I for one, cannot wait to read them again.

I hope these stories aren't your only contribution to the Halo universe!

Two side notes:
-In Cryptum, you would split every few chapters with a poem. I absolutely loved these and was hoping to see them in Primordium.
-I was wondering if the events that took place at the end of Glasslands (unknown bodies in cryo pods) was somehow related to these stories.
I had initially hoped one pod might have belonged to Chakas.

I suppose I will have to wait on the third book. :) In the meantime, could you point me to another of your books that you think I might enjoy?

No spoilers! Thanks, Jeremy... I wonder how many poems most readers could stand?

Other books--the book that apparently encouraged Frank and Kevin to select me for the Forerunner saga was CITY AT THE END OF TIME. And HULL ZERO THREE is doing quite well, my most recent novel before tackling the Forerunners.
