Re: [Clive Cussler fan club] Where'd Dirk Pitt go?
- The Numa Files series of books with Kurt Austin starts with Serpent
and is co-written with Paul Kemprecos. According to Dr. Cussler's
pr person Carole Barthlowmeax(I'm sure I spelled it wrong) Dr.
Cussler supplies the 'Base" material....storyline, character
development etc. .... and Paul Kemprecos 'fleshes' out the story,
with Clive helping.
In the beginning of "Serpent" their is a 'Letter' from Dirk
introducing Kurt and Joe. They are another group working for
N.U.M.A under Sandecker. The second book in the series is "Blue
Gold" and the third is "Fire Ice". I have enjoyed all 3 books and
look forward to reading the newest edition in the series "White
Dirk is not being retired, according to Carole in the next Dirk Pitt
book........Do not read further if you don't really want spoilers....
Trojan Odssey will be released around Thanksgiving and some of the
story plots will be.....Sandecker becomes Vice President, Dirk
becomes head of N.U.M.A., but is by no means going to 'retire', he
and Al will have adventures of their own. Dirk Jr and Summer Jr.
will be joining N.U.M.A and will start their own adventures. (no
news if this will be ongoing in the Dirk Pitt books or their own).
Dirk and Laurn will marry.
Altho it looks like Clive may be retiring from writing, as his real
life son Dirk Cussler will be taking over writing the Dirk Pitt
novels starting next year. (another Dirk Pitt adventure release in
2004 written by Dirk Cussler). He will still be 'helping' out.
Another new series will be launched in October called "The Oregon
Files" about the mercenary group from.....um Dragon, I think (I
could be wrong now I have to go look it up), this will be co-written
with Craig Dirgo (Sea Hunters and Sea Hunters II).
