RIP Clive Cussler

Dirk Pitt novels author dies aged 88

Quote:
He wrote 25 books in the adventure series, including Sahara and Raise the Titanic, and sold more than 100 million copies of his novels in total.

Writing on Twitter, Cussler's wife said: "It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news that my husband Clive passed away [on] Monday.

"It has been a privilege to share in his life."

She added: "I want to thank you, his fans and friends, for all the support. He was the kindest most gentle man I ever met. I know, his adventures will continue."
That sucks.

I have a number of his novels in our personal library.

Fair winds and following seas.

Sad to know there will be no more as I read the majority of his books over the years and he was among my favourites. May he rest in peace.

Been working my way through the Oregon series, recently finished reading Mirage. As always enjoyed every page. He will be missed but I still have many more of his novels to read.
