Most books have the date inside. Flip open the book and look at the back of either the first or second page. Generally the date is listed along with all of the publishing info.
There are many Halo books.
It's already out.
The next book's, Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex,publishing date is July 20, 2010 (according to Wikipedia) although it may change.
Most copyright dates in a book are either in the very front of the book or the very back. There will be the publishing date and the copyright date. The copyright date is the one next to the "c" with the circle around it for copyright.
That information isn't out yet.
Have found no evidence of the publishing intentions.Last notice said 2009,but further research shows no publishing date.
The last publication date was 8/17/2001
most likely a serial number of some sort.
March 1988 (can be found in the book for year, but also look on amazon books for a publishing date for any book!) hope that helps.
