How many of you are avid fans of the world reknowned Clive Cussler?
Did you know there is a Clive Cussler Society that boasts over 300 members which is essentially a dedicated fan club of Clive's?
Clive is best known for his Dirk Pitt adventure series - I think of Dirk as an aquatic James Bond character.
The list of titles in that series now stands at nineteen:
1. Pacific Vortex! (1981)
2. The Mediterranean Caper (1973)
3. Iceberg (1975)
4. Raise the Titanic! (1976)
5. Vixen 03 (1976)
6. Night Probe! (1981)
7. Deep Six (1984)
8. Cyclops (1986)
9. Treasure (1988)
10. Dragon (1990)
Iceberg, Dragon, Deep Six (omnibus) (1991)
11. Sahara (1992)
12. Inca Gold (1991)
The Mediterranean Caper / Iceberg (omnibus) (1995)
13. Shock Wave (1995)
Clive Cussler Gift Set: Treasure, Dragon, and Sahara (omnibus) (1996)
14. Flood Tide (1997)
Dirk Pitt Revealed (1998) (with Craig Dirgo)
15. Atlantis Found (1999)
Flood Tide and Cyclops (omnibus) (2001)
16. Valhalla Rising (2001) (with Paul Kemprecos)
17. Trojan Odyssey (2003)
18. Black Wind (2004) (with Dirk Cussler)
19. The Treasure of Khan (2006) (with Dirk Cussler)
Pacific Vortex was written first but published fourth as Clive didn't initially think it was "good enough"!
True First Editions of the early titles easily fetch hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
Have you had the pleasure of reading this series? Happen to have any hardcover copies tucked away that may be worth a few bucks?
BTW - This has nothing to do with real estate - but I did have the chance to have lunch last year with both Clive Cussler and Vince Flynn (another "name" in the adventure genre). Clive lives in Arizona. Vince does not.
