San Diego native, comics fan, scholar, and Hugo and Nebula-award-winning author Greg Bear continues his enrichment of the mega-popular science fiction video game franchise Halo universe. Silentium, the conclusion to the Forerunner trilogy, sets the stage for possible apocalypse as the Forerunner empire is overrun by fierce and greedy shape-shifting parasites. Greg will also be a guest speaker at the significant science fiction exhibit at San Diego State University called Strange Data, Infinite Possibilities earlier in the afternoon.
The Precursors created many technological species, including humanity and the Forerunners. But the roots of the Flood may be found in an act of enormous barbarity, carried out beyond our galaxy ten million years before...
Because of that barbarism, a greater evil looms. Only the Ur-Didact and the Librarian--husband and wife pushed into desperate conflict--hold the keys to a solution.
Facing the consequences of a mythic tragedy, one of them must now commit the greatest atrocity of all time--to prevent an insane evil from dominating the entire universe.
