The next Halo novel is Ghosts of Onyx, by Eric Nylund. Let the celebrations begin! Our new publishing partner,
, will release the latest novel in November, 2006 continuing and expanding the scenarios and characters created by Nylund, and expanding the Halo universe a little bit more.
”Halo has established itself as one of the finest science fiction universes to emerge from the video game industry,” says Tor editor Eric Raab. “The first three novels merely scratched the surface. The storyline that the folks at Bungie have created is phenomenal, and its characters are begging to be explored further in novels.”
The announcement of the new novel also heralds the fact that (at least) two other Halo novels will be published by Tor, and those will have some
exciting news attached to them, but we'll tell you more about that much later.
Fans of the Halo novels and followers of Nylund's fiction probably already saw the leak of the book's production title, "Ghosts of Coral." The novel's actual title, "Ghosts of Onyx" will reveal its fictional origin in November. So if you're interested,
you can pre-order it now
The cover art for the new book was actually created in-house by a Bungie artist, and we look forward to revealing that very shortly. Maybe even in the next week or two.
