What if Bungie made Marathon Books, like they do Halo books?

One person rose up.
Armed with a mystical new weapon/scenario map, the MTBP, (Marathon Trilogy Book Presentation)

He rose up and thrust the MTBP to Bungie, Bungie recieved the MTBP.
The person waited for a response, and was CRUSHED unsympathetically.

That person... was me. It was TERRIBLE!

I don't think they really needed marathon books, the games were the books. The halo books take a shell of a story that is halo and fills in more, and even then It coulden't posibly generate the kind of passion for the story that you can find on mbo and fbo

no i was just wondering if there was any books at all about the story or anything. i know the story is discussed in such detail in the game but it would cool to be able to read about it without having to play the game
