Read a Book! Halo: Contact Harvest Launches
Tor Books has announced that the newest novel based on the Halo series has shipped to retailers. Halo: Contact Harvest is penned by Joseph Staten, lead writer for Bungie and one of the original creators of the Halo trilogy. This marks his first entry into the world of novel writing, after serving as writer and cinematics director on all three Halo games. The book will follow a young Staff Sergeant Avery Johnson, Master Chief’s mentor, as he experiences the beginning of humanity’s war with the Covenant.
“It goes without saying that Joseph has great, intimate knowledge of the Halo universe, so who better to tell the harrowing tale of humanity’s first contact with the Covenant?” says Tor Editor Eric Raab. “In the novel, Joseph not only reveals exciting nuances of known events and characters such as Sgt. Johnson. But he also breaks new ground —takes readers on an action-packed journey to a little-known but vital part of the Halo universe: the far-flung, ill-fated word of Harvest.”
