OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:
Tor Books, an imprint of Tom Doherty Associates, LLC—the largest publisher of science fiction in the world—and Microsoft are pleased to announce the latest novel and its author in the New York Times bestselling Halo series. Nebula nominee and Prometheus Award finalist, Tobias S. Buckell has been tapped to write “Halo: The Cole Protocol”, due out Fall 2008. The new novel will be the sixth release in the New York Times bestselling series based on the blockbuster Halo (Bungie Studios) video games for Microsoft’s Xbox 360. An unabridged audiobook edition will publish simultaneously with the new novel.

Tobias S. Buckell exploded onto the science fiction scene with “Crystal Rain”, (Tor 2006) a debut that combined a unique mix of Caribbean culture—where Buckell was born and raised—and hard SF adventure elements. Buckell’s unique and groundbreaking work won him acclaim from peers and the literary community, who called him “a dazzling new voice.” His second novel, “Ragamuffin”, (Tor 2007) was a 2007 Nebula Award nominee for Best Novel; a 2008 Prometheus Award finalist for Best Novel; and a Locus “Best of 2007.” He is a graduate of the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers’ Workshop, and was a first-place winner for the Writers of the Future, as well as having been nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. Buckell’s third novel, “Sly Mongoose”, hits shelves on August 19, 2008.


Buckell’s blend of hard science fiction with character-based action adventure and forays into classic SF pulp won the admiration of both
Tor and Microsoft. Buckell is also a big Halo fan who has played every incarnation of the game. “I’ve been a fan of Buckell’s since Crystal Rain, and when I found out he was playing Halo, I was chomping at the bit to get him to try his hand at a Halo novel.” says Tor Editor Eric Raab. “The Cole Protocol is awesome stuff that expands the Halo universe in some really amazing ways.”

Halo: The Cole Protocol” will unveil the location of the Spartan Gray Team, and take readers into an unexplored conflict of the Human-Covenant War, where unlikely alliances are formed and shattered, altering the course of 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 SF franchises.
