Tor Books has announced that a new series of Halo novels are on the way. Not to be confused with the upcoming trilogy by Greg Bear, these will be penned by Karen Traviss, author of the Gears of War novels as well as the short story “Human Weakness” from the 2009 Halo Evolutions collection.

The first new novel to be penned by Traviss will serve as a sequel to Ghosts of Onyx, and will reveal the fate of its team of Spartans. The series promises to “explore the Halo Universe in the wake of the final events of Halo 3. ” Presumably, the novels will also contain a heavy does of alien murder. We’ve contacted Tor in hopes of pinning down a release window for the new novels. Meanwhile, Bear’s trilogy is set to debut this year.
