GREG BEAR, A WRITER WITH A GREAT LEGACY FOR HALO
Bear fell in love with literature at the age of 15, the age at which he began to publish his first writings. It soon became clear that science fiction was his thing and he remained faithful to the genre throughout his life. This led him to write more than 50 well-received books.
It was in 2011 that he began to explore and expand the Halo universe with interesting stories that became the Forerunner Saga . The result was 3 novels that surely fans of the saga already know: Halo: Cryptum (2011), Primordium (2012) and Silentium (2013).
These books served to delve into the lore of the saga and give way to Halo 4 . The gaming community also mourned his departure and thanked him for all of his valuable contributions to the world of the series.
