You may remember Eric Nylund as the man with the dream job. Nylund writes for Microsoft and moonlights as a novelist -- he's written three of the four Halo books, the latest of which has just seen publication.
And, by the by, you may remember me as the guy with the blog who got to ask Nylund a few questions...
Me: You've seen the Halo story bible. What's in it that game fans would stab their mothers to know about?
Eric Nylund: Let’s not say “stab their mothers” okay? That’s all I need are a couple hundred angry emails from the mothers of HALO fans. No one stab your mother, okay? Thanks.
...where was I? Right, the HALO bible. Well, if I told you about all the juicy goodness contained within the HALO bible, you’d be visited by Bungie’s infamous flaming ninja squad (and we’d revisit this entire “stab” issue), and this article would never see the light of the internet.
I will tell you that it’s full of secrets and lies and truths, curses and blessings and Monkey gods—things which cannot exist in this universe, be glimpsed, and walked away from with sanity intact!
Trust me. It’s all there. And more.
