Peter Jackson signs up for Halo games

We should probably get those books for the library :)

Yay dragons :)

Re the games - nice to hear the Halo universe will continue for a while - there's some fun story telling that can be done there.

While we're talkinga bout games, Mass Effect looks like it could be cool (
