A PRIMER FOR HALO: POINT OF LIGHT
“My galaxy is dead. I am machine. I am Chakas. I am human. I am 343 Guilty Spark.”
Halo: Point of Light, the next book by Kelly Gay, is releasing March 2nd 2021 and will continue the story of our favourite lightbulb – 343 Guilty Spark.

Sixteen years… It occurs to me that Halo has been in my life longer than it hasn’t. I was seven when Halo 1 released and I’m twenty-three now. This series has been alongside me throughout the most formative years of my life. As I’m sure is the case for many of you, I simply cannot imagine what […]

Yes, the folks at 343 Industries decided to give me an early copy of Halo Wars 2 (the Ultimate Edition, no less) – which, as you would probably expect, I am ecstatic about!
