Topic: Forerunners and Their Physique of Forerunners.

Hi Greg Bear! I have to say, I'm impressed with the first book Cryptum, and I'm about to complete Primordium. This book is also very interesting, too.
About the look of the Forerunners, I heard that you described them as Tolkien Elves, but did you compare them physically or did you compare them based on each other's way of society?
And about the Didact and the Librarian showing up in Halo Four... are you disappointed by their physical appearances? I say I'm glad that 343i decided to make them human due to them being related to Reclaimers, yet meaning them unique in their own way.

A prior description in the Halo speculation universe was that the Forerunners resembled Tolkien elves. Subsequent archaeological and forensic studies showed that wasn't quite the case! HALO FOUR captures their look perfectly, I think.
