I am a massive halo fan. I think Master Chief is my lord and savior, Spartan Christ. But all that jizziming aside, the books can be enjoyed seperate from the games, because the books really give you a sense of just how massive the Halo universe is. I have yet to read the forerunner saga, but other than that, I have read the entire series, including the evolutions short stories.

Anybody else here a fan of the Halo novels.

haven't read the Forerunner saga, but I loved Fall of Reach. Contact Harvest was also quite good.
Can we just clone Corvus and have a Corvus-clone mod army?

Fall of Reach is one of my favorites, because it covers a lot of backstory on the SPARTANs. Pretty much anything Eric Nylund writes gets me essited.

These are the ones I've read. First Strike has been to hell and back. I kept those messed up ones in my cargo pocket and read them all over the place various times when I was on ship. I can't really remember too much from them because it's been quite a few years since the last one I read. I do remember bits and pieces and I loved them First Strike was awesome. I think I read it twice.

READ ALL OF ERIC NYLUND'S BOOKS (especially his non-halo books)

Read Bear's first Forerunner novel.

Wont drop spoilers but I think the series is going to go a long way into explaining the whole forerunner / reclaimer thing.
Bear was chosen because of his Eon series, which, if you've never read is a total time-space mind fuck, which made him perfect for the forerunners. Not every thing I wanted or expected, but well worth it for the lore mongers.

As I've talked about before, the Forerunner Saga is fucking amazing.  The first book is kind of put-offish because it's read from the point of view of a Forerunner who is massively more intelligent than any human being could ever be.  The whole time I read it made me think of looking through a foggy window.  But it was fucking amazing.  The second book makes you go: "Jesus fucking Christ...."

Can't wait for the 3rd one.  That being said, I've read every Halo book and they are all INCREDIBLE.  The majority of them are stand-alone books in that, you know the basic backstory of the Halo universe so to come in at anytime of the story won't really ruin anything for you.  I recommend all of them especially Nylund's ones detailing the history of the Spartan project and it's development.

Am currently reading the second of the Forerunner Saga. I exploded in my pants when Karen Traviss started writing Halo. But the vast majority of the Spartans-II's dying on reach still makes me a sad panda.

Quote from: Wikipedia
There have been numerous printed adaptations based on the Halo canon established by the video games. Larry Niven (author of Ringworld) was originally approached to write a Halo novelization, but declined due to unfamiliarity with the subject matter.[102] The first novel was Halo: The Fall of Reach, a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved. It was written by Eric Nylund in seven weeks, and published in October 2001.[103] William C. Dietz wrote an adaptation of Halo: Combat Evolved called Halo: The Flood, which was released in 2003.[104] Eric Nylund returned to write the third novel, Halo: First Strike, which takes place between Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2, and was published in December 2003. Nylund also wrote the fourth adaptation, Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, which was published on October 31, 2006.[105] Bungie employee Joseph Staten wrote the fifth book, Halo: Contact Harvest, which was released on October 30, 2007, while Tobias S. Buckell produced the sixth, Halo: The Cole Protocol, published in November 2008. Bungie considers the Halo novels as additions to the Halo canon.[106]

I didn't know about the Larry Niven thing, but I love his Known Space stories, that'd have been cool to have seen.

Contact: Harvest is the first one timewise in the series, i believe. But it's a little boring and drawn out.

I read The Fall of Reach back in like 2003.  I remember it being actually very good.

I'm not reading all that shit and have no idea what you're arguing about but I feel confident in saying that one of you is profoundly retarded and the other one agrees with me.

Frankly, I think the books are better than the games. There's a depth within the novels that I find interesting. It's simple, penny fiction, but it's good penny fiction.

Wait until you read Ghosts of Onyx and onward.  You will be pleased.

I love how the post Halo 3 books were worked into Halo 4.  I remember seeing the reveal trailer and shitting my pants when they said Promethean.  I was like HOLY FUCK FORERUNNERS.

Alas, they were just digital humans :(
