How it all started

June 7, 2015
The first Cussler book I read, back in 2001 was Atlantis Found. To be honest, I thought the book was about the mysterious Atlantis. At that that time, I was reading all there was about Atlantis, the mystic island of Mur, Maya’s, Pyramid’s and its assumed link to stellar constellations and the like. I never expected  the book to be an adventure book. It turned out to be one of my best misjudgements. Shortly after, I bought my second book Blue Gold, and that was what really got me going.

  I use “The Collector’s guide to Clive Cussler”,  “A Bibliography of Clive Cussler” and “The adventure writing of Clive Cussler” by Wayne Valero, as an important help in putting my collection together.

Following an invitation from Wayne in August 2002, I joined the CCCS on January 13, 2004.
