The action-adventure book Contact Harvest is on the USA Today and New York Times best-seller lists. Author Joseph Staten had never written a novel but was uniquely qualified to write this one.

Contact Harvest is the most recent book in a series of adaptations of the video game Halo, for which Staten has been writing for years.

It's not the first time the world of a game has been translated into book form, but the popularity of Contact Harvest shows Halo's influence is reaching beyond the gaming community.
