Quote from the Tor Press Release: "April 4, 2007 - Tor Books, an imprint of Tom Doherty Associates, LLC—the largest publisher of science fiction in the world—in partnership with Bungie Studios, one of Microsoft Game Studios’ premiere first part game development studios, today announced the mass market release of Halo: Ghosts of Onyx.Have you read this book yet? Well, I am a self professed Halo fanboy and I am totally ashamed to say I have not read it yet. I think it may just be time to remedy that situation. If you feel the same way, click the picture of the book to be taken to Amazon.com and buy yourself a copy.
The first in a three novel series from Tor, Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, was written by Eric Nylund. Nylund authored two of the previous Halo® novels, Halo: The Fall of Reach and Halo: First Strike. Halo: Ghosts of Onyx takes readers deep into crucial events that unfold during the Halo and Halo 2 timelines, expanding the characters and story of the Halo Universe as fans eagerly await the arrival of Halo 3 later this year.
Originally released as a trade paperback in November 2006, Halo: Ghosts of Onyx debuted as a New York Times Bestseller, remaining on the list for 11 straight weeks and going on to become an international bestseller. At least two more novels will follow over the next few years, each exploring the game’s rich universe, characters and mythos."
Quote from Wikipedia: The origin of this custom has been much disputed. Many theories have been suggested. What seems certain is that it is in some way or other a relic of those once universal festivities held at the vernal equinox, which, beginning on old New Year's Day, the 25th of March, ended on the 2nd of April.I am not much of a prank person so I usually don't try to pull pranks on others and end up ignoring the festivities of the day but today my RSS reader is full of April Fools jokes from various blogs. I thought I would post links to some of the more blatant pranks, stories, posts, and articles.
Quote from the article: "Here are 10 of the top April Fool's Day pranks ever pulled off, as judged by the San Diego-based Museum of Hoaxes for their notoriety, absurdity, and number of people duped."So there you have it, April Fools 2007 from a few sites around the Internet. If you happen to see some juicy Aprils Fools posts I missed, please post them in the comments. I do get a kick out of a good joke :) Oh, if I was fooled and some of these posts are real I apologize, this day can be tough for the receiving end of the jokes.
