As well as writing Gears novels and comics, I was the lead writer on Gears of War 3. Even if you're not a gamer and you think it's all blood and grunting, take a look at Gears and give it a chance. It really does have a story, the cinematics are world class, there's real acting from the voice talent, and I worked my guts out on it. So don't let my efforts be in vain. You will play, and you will love it, but even if you don't play, at least enjoy the wonderful cinematics. It's a very special IP that'll always be the best franchise project I've worked on and I'm genuinely proud to have been part of it.
