Halo: The Cole Protocol launching November 25

Halo is a game. Maybe you've heard of it. The original trilogy has since been concluded (or has it...), but that doesn't mean that the universe can't live on in other medium. I mean, Star Wars certainly hasn't died despite there being only six movies, so why can't Halo. And that's the good news. In a recent press release, Tor Books announced that Halo: The Cole Protocol would be hitting stores November 25. The book is the sixth in series based on the games, and is written by Tobias Buckell (not to be confused with Tobias Funke, who wrote The Man Inside Me, but I digress). What's the story with this story? The location of the Spartan Gray team is revealed and readers get to see a different aspect of the war between Human and Covenant forces. Buckell indicated on his blog that this was a secret project he was working on, but now the secret's out. The trade paperback will set you back $14.95 when it first hits bookstores. The full press release is below, and you have about two months to get that Halo guitar riff cued up to listen to on repeat while reading (I've heard it adds to the experience). HALO: THE COLE PROTOCOL TO LAUNCH ON NOVEMBER 25th NEW YORK, NY – October 7, 2008. Tor Books today announced Halo: The Cole Protocol will be released on November 25 – just in time for the holidays! The cover image for the new novel has been officially revealed to coincide with the announcement (see attached). Halo: The Cole Protocol is the sixth in the New York Times bestselling literary series based on the blockbuster Microsoft and Bungie Studios' Halo® video games. An unabridged audiobook edition will publish simultaneously with the new novel. Written by Nebula nominee and Prometheus Award finalist, Tobias Buckell, Halo: The Cole Protocol unveils the location of the Spartan Gray Team and takes readers into an unexplored conflict of the Human-Covenant War, where unlikely alliances are formed and shattered, altering the course of the humanity's epic struggle for survival. The Halo novels, Halo: Ghosts of Onyx (Tor 2006) and Halo: Contact Harvest (Tor 2007) became instant bestsellers and they, along with the three previous novels, have helped establish Halo® as one of today's greatest science fiction franchises.
