Halo: Primordium, the sequel to Halo: Cryptum and the second novel in the Forerunner Saga, will be coming out on January 3, 2012. Published by Tor Books, the novel – which will be available in both print and audio versions – will be penned by Greg Bear, who was also the author of Cryptum.
Fans at San Diego Comic-Con will be able to see the award-winning science fiction writer at two Halo panels, “Writing in Videogames: In-Game, Novels, Comics, and Other Franchise-Building Offshoots” (Room 32AB), and “Halo Universe” (Room 6BCF). Those panels are at 10 AM and 11:30 AM, respectively, on Friday, July 22. Also on Friday, at 2 PM, Bear will be at the Tor Books booth (#2707), where there will be a giveaway as well as signing of Halo: Evolutions books, totebags and posters.
