Tor Books and 343 Industries have just announced the first title in a brand new Halo trilogy from Karen Traviss (Star Wars, Gears of War, and more).
Halo: Glasslands will follow up on the events of Halo: Ghosts of Onyx in the wake of the final events of Halo 3.
“Although Karen’s novel deals with the characters and events from Ghosts of Onyx, it’s the wonderful new characters and scenarios that she brings so vividly to life that will excite Halo fiction fans,” says Frank O’Connor, Franchise Development Director for 343 Industries. “We get an incredible opportunity to explore the Halo universe in the aftermath of the Covenant war, and unveil some mysteries and storylines that will connect readers to a compelling corner of the Halo universe. I can’t wait for readers to enjoy this book as much as we have.”
Halo: Glasslands will be released on October 25, 2011. A sequel to the first book in legendary science fiction author Greg Bear’s Halo Forerunner trilogy, Halo: Cryptum (read a free excerpt here) is also expected in 2012.
