Halo Mythos: A Guide to the Story of Halo is a reference book on the Halo universe that was released on September 6, 2016. The book details events from the Forerunner era to after the Human-Covenant War from the perspective of Curator.

Official summary[edit]

This official, comprehensive, authoritative guide to the Halo universe, written in collaboration with 343 Industries, the developers of the “Halo” franchise, marks the first time that a book incorporates the entirety of the “Halo” canon, including the games, books, comics, live-action and animated entertainment, and more.

The book also includes over 50 specially commissioned full-color paintings showcasing vehicles, artificial intelligence, weapons, ships, and never-before-seen aspects of Halo environments. The amazing illustrations come from a variety of renowned illustrators, including Jean-Sébastien Rossbach, Leonid Kozienko, Benjamin Carré, Isaac Hannaford, and 343's internal art team, too.

For the first time ever, the timeline of the Halo universe is available in one place, charting humanity's battles against alien forces of the Covenant, Forerunners, and the Flood--making this book an absolute must-have for Halo fans.


First revealed in "Ship It", the fifth episode of the third season of The Sprint,[4] Halo Mythos serves as a guide and overview of the Halo universe. Published by Egmont Publishing, Halo Mythos was written by several of 343 Industries' writers, including Jeff Easterling. In contrast to the Halo Encyclopedia, Halo Mythos is not an encyclopedia but will provide information from the Halo fiction, from the human-Forerunner wars to the story of Halo 5: Guardians, with the inclusion of connected stories that help tie in characters, artifacts, and events from Halo games, comics, novels, and live-action and animated features. The book will include over fifty pieces of newly commissioned artwork from various artists, including Isaac Hannaford, that depict scenes and moments from Halo novels.[2]
