Topic: Post-Silentium, just wanted to say thanks

Having finished Silentium today after eagerly snatching it up almost the moment it was released, I just thought I'd send a message to say thank you.

Thank you for doing such an incredible job enriching the Halo universe, in fleshing out the mythology and the characters that have remained translucent shadows in the background of the lore for so very long.

Silentium was everything I hoped it would be, so much epic tragedy and far-reaching implication that it staggered me to read, and no doubt will inspire a lot of rereads in the future. There wasnt a single character I didnt feel some degree of empathy for, and the depth of detail surrounding the fate of the Ur-Didact in particular was incredibly well done.

You've brought the sense of mystery and awe back to the Halo universe, the very thing that attracted me so deeply to it in the very first game, and for that you have my undying gratitude. Youve been a gift to the entire franchise.

Best of luck in all your future projects, and I hope this isn't the last time you play in the Halo sandbox.

Thanks, Dan! Working on a new trilogy right now that touches on a very different kind of warfare in space...
