"Halo: The Fall of Reach" Comes To Shelves Today

That would be bookshelves, kids, in bookstores. A new revision of Eric Nylund's "Halo: The Fall of Reach," first published in 2001, went on sale today with 27 pages of new material.

What's in the new trade paperback? Glad you asked. According to a release from Tor Books, you get:

• Excerpts of Office of Naval Intelligence interrogations of the Covenant.
• Missives and mandates issued by the Covenant
• Declassified transmissions regarding the defense of Reach
• A personal insight into the Spartan program
• The Official Evacuation Order for all inhabitants of Reach.
• Five sketches of cover art by 343 Industries artist, Robogabo.

Next, Tor will release new editions of "Halo: The Flood" by William C. Dietz (on Sept. 28) and "Halo: First Strike" (also by Nylund, on Dec. 7.) Then around the holidays, the first book in the new Halo Forerunners trilogy will arrive.
