How to write a Halo novel
Eric Trautmann passes along a few details about the upcoming Halo novel, 'Fall of Reach'... and in the process passes on a bit more. Cortana will play a major role in the book... but more interestingly, Eric describes the 'Story Bible':

The story bible was written by yours truly (with some help from Eric Nylund, Doug Zartman, and Brannon Boren, all Microsoft employees). It is designed as a "reference guide" for authors, comic book writers, etc., so that they can build new stories set in the "Halo" universe without contradicting the game or each other. It also clearly identifies areas that are "hands off" -- the province of Bungie for potential future game development.

Very nice to see that Doug Zartmann is involved... and also very nice to see that Bungie keeps their options open. Thanks, Eric! Updated: Toned down the wording a bit, thanks to Eric's rebuttal. --CZ (Louis Wu 01:02:26 UTC)
