Very sad to see that author Clive Cussler passed away at the age of 88. He wrote the Dirk Pitt novels which are some of my favorite books and have been part of my life for the past 30+ years. I remember reading “Deep Six” when I was in high school and was hooked ever since. Since then I have read every Dirk Pitt Adventure, as well as some of his other books and enjoyed every one of them. His books were my companions on vacations, buisness trips and lazy afternoons. Nothing was better that starting a new Dirk Pitt novel and getting swept away in another adventure.
I thank Mr. Cussler for creating the character of Dirk Pitt, along with Admiral James Sandecker, Al Giordino, Rudi Gunn, Hiram Yaeger and St. Julien Perlmutter. He also created the character Foss Gly, who appears in a few of the Dirk Pitt books. I don’t know why, but I always remember this character and he has become a cult favorite of mine.
Here are a few photos of his books that I have read over the years
RIP Clive Cussler – You and your books will be missed
