I wanted to thank you for expanding upon a universe that was to me what Star Wars was to my father. You wrote the best books in the haloverse and, while I haven't read silentium yet, I'm sure it'll be the icing on the cake.
From the mighty fortress class vessels to the young and adventurous bornsteller ( before becoming the iso-didact) you have filled in a unique aspect of the haloverse, and I don't think any other author could have done it like you did. You dissected the forerunners and breathed life into the ancient and dead civilization we came to wonder about while traversing the mighty rings.
I sincerely thank you for your work in a universe I hold dear.

Thanks much, Ben! It was a privilege to meet so many Halo fans, and to work with the Halo team--excellent people all!
Thanks for the response, now I have a question. At the end when fortenchencho was talking to the librarian
When he was talking about the precursors and saying that they had been around for 100 billion years was he saying that even if they all got killed off by the rings there collective concious would be back?
Also was it that once a gravemind formed he represented that consciousness and keyminds were just the floods response to ai.
Or we're keyminds just super advanced graveminds?
