HALO: FRACTURES cover reveal!

When I first saw Halo, the game that would become Xbox's killer app was still in deep prototype and the console that would make it a hit hadn't even been announced yet; but even back then I saw the potential for awesomeness in the saga, and when Halo: Combat Evolved arrived in 2001, I was on board. Drawn in by the epic scope and the visceral, dynamic gameplay, I was in for the long haul - and a decade and a bit later, I'm still engaged in Master Chief's world.

So naturally, when I learned that Simon & Schuster (with whom I've worked on Star Trek fiction for several years) were picking up the license to produce all-new original stories in the Halo universe, I knew that was a flag I had to capture. I pitched myself to S&S and the folks at 343 Industries and the end result was an opportunity to write a story set deep in the continuity of the saga, as part of a new anthology called Halo: Fractures. The book will release this September under the Gallery Books imprint in trade paperback, eBook and unabridged audio editions.
I'll be joining a literary strike team of writers that also includes Tobias Buckell, Troy Denning, Matt Forbeck, Kelly Gay, Christie Golden, Kevin Grace, Morgan Lockhart, John Jackson Miller, Frank O’Connor and Brian Reed - and I'll talk more about my work in the collection in the months ahead.

Launch once more into galaxy-spanning conflict and legendary heroism…shards of an ever-expanding journey where human and alien alike find their finest hours in facing their greatest challenges.

These scattered stories span untold millennia, from the age of the ancient custodial race known as the Forerunners…to the aftermath of the Covenant’s bloody war against humanity…and even the shocking events surrounding the resurrection of the mysterious Guardians.

Halo: Fractures explores mythic tales of bravery and sacrifice that blaze brightly at the very heart of the Halo universe.
