I loved it. I feel saddened when other readers are complaining about how it was not "action packed" enough or it was just walking, because they missed so much. It was a great work that has added a lot to the Forerunners and the Halo universe itself. I enjoyed Chakas from Cryptum and felt bad for him being a stunted human cast into the advanced Forerunner conflict, but to learn what happen to him after was terrible. I enjoyed my journey around that Halo installation and can wait to see where all your going to take it too next.

The memory/ personality imprint from the old humans, like the Lord Admiral, that the Didact fought with completely blew my mind. Where did the inspiration for that come from?

Thanks, Ivan! There are a lot of echoes of these ideas in book three--and... well, my lips are sealed... for the time being!

HEY! I can't believed I missed you here in Albuquerque! You were at a local book store for a book signing! I got one of the signed copies anyway, and they were out of The Forge of God which my main mission.

Good signing in Albuquerque! And great barbecue with Walter Jon Williams after. Sorry to miss you--perhaps next time?
