You can read, right? Good! You know what you should read about? Halo. Yeah, I know it's a game, but it's also a book series. Some literary pointy-heads probably aren't even aware of this, but there's a full slate of Halo stories out there in ink and paper form. The latest, Halo: Grasslands, comes out on October 25, and is set about a year after the events of Halo: Combat Evolved.
"That's great, Steve, but how will I know if I like this 'book' before I purchase it?!" I'm glad you asked, because I have a paragraph from the book for you to sample:
Agnoli reached down between his legs to pull out a volume at random, but BB was pretty sure he was keeping an eye on the office door via the reflection in the glass panel opposite. “Or will she transmogrify into her true basilisk form, and vanish in a puff of sulfur? I’d pay good money to see that.”
Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. There's an entire chapter new online right now, and you should read it. It's like a demo for the novel.
The Halo books require a lot more reading than the games, of course. They contain, literally, thousands of words. Probably some of your favorite words are included; words like "Again," "That" and "He." I heard there are even exciting bonus words like "Woah!" On the negative side, you'll have to turn a lot of pages, where the video games have a lot more button pushing. In the end, it's a toss-up.
Read a book!
