"You are your own forerunner, and the towers you have builded are but the foundation of your own giant-self. And that self too shall be a foundation." "And I too am my own forerunner, for the long shadow stretching before me at sunrise shall gather under my feet at the noon hour. Yet another sunrise shall lay another shadow before me, and that also shall be gathered at another noon." "Always have we been our own forerunners, and always shall we be. And all that we have gathered and shall gather shall be but seeds for fields yet unploughed. We are the fields and the ploughmen, the gatherers an the gathered."

The first novel in the Forerunner Saga trilogy by science fiction legend Greg Bear—set in the Halo universe and based on the New York Times bestselling video game series! One hundred thousand years ago, the galaxy was populated by a great variety of beings. But one species—eons beyond all others in both technology and knowledge—achieved dominance. They ruled in peace, but met opposition with quick and brutal effectiveness. They were the Forerunners—the keepers of the Mantle of Responsibility, the next stage of life in the Universe’s Living Time. And then they vanished. This is their story.

In the last years of the Forerunner empire, chaos rules. The Flood--a horrifying shape-changing parasite--has arrived in force, aided by unexpected allies. Internal strife within the ecumene has desperately weakened Forerunner defenses. Too little, too late, the legal rate of Juridicals is only now investigating possible crimes by the Master Builder and others. Evidence-gathering agents known collectively as Catalog have been dispatched to collect testimony from the Librarian and both Didacts: the Ur-Didact, treacherously abandoned in a Flood-infested system, and the Bornstellar Didact, who accompanies the Librarian as she preserves specimens against the dire possibility of Halo extermination. Facing the imminent collapse of their civilization, the Librarian and the Ur-Didact reveal what they know about the relationship between the long-vanished Precursors and the Flood. The Precursors created many technological species, including humanity and the Forerunners. But the roots of the Flood may be found in an act of enormous barbarity, carried out beyond our galaxy ten million years before... Because of that barbarism, a greater evil looms. Only the Ur-Didact and the Librarian--husband and wife pushed into desperate conflict--hold the keys to a solution. Facing the consequences of a mythic tragedy, one of them must now commit the greatest atrocity of all time-to prevent an insane evil from dominating the entire universe ... in Greg Bear's Halo: Silentium. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The death of a loved one can be very dramatic. And if the death is unexpected it can be even more devastating. In the novel The Forerunner, Edmund Ausmus has lived his life shadowed not only by guilt he has felt since the death of his brother Richard during World War II, but also by the anger he had directed toward his father whom he partly blamed for his brothers death. After a twenty-one year self-imposed exile, Edmund returns to his childhood home in the hopes that by sharing his feelings with his sister Cordelia he might come to terms with his guilt and anger. But the reunion with Cordelia raises more questions than answers when she informs him that Richard never intended on returning from the war, that he wanted to die there. Confused and unsettled by the news, Edmund embarks on a journey to fi nd the truth concerning his brothers death. Through conversations Edmund has with Cordelia, and by confronting memories of his past, Edmund learns things about his family he never knew. The secrets Edmund uncovers begins to shed light on the reasons some of the events of the past had transpired the way they had. And by delving even deeper into Richards past and by talking with those who knew Richard before the war, Edmund is able to learn the unsettling secret which drove Richard to the choice he made about his life. When his journey is complete Edmund is able to reconcile himself with the past and accept his place in the family he for years had run away from.

This book explores systematically how intention, agency, and moral psychology were interpreted in all branches of early Theravada thought, paying special attention to the thought of the 5th-century commentator Buddhaghosa.
