      >He has a nine or ten city Book Tour coming up in November and
      >December for the next Dirk Pitt (R) adventure TROJAN ODYSSEY. Then
      >he leaves for three months on location to assure that the film is

      >books of the same name. www.seahunters.net He will not read your E-

      >going so far as to be in a submarine movie set in World War II and
      >dying his hair black and going to Mali. I think he has the "fire in

      >no one else believed in. I was watching a Biography on Kevin

      >too, because baseball movies never make money but BULL DURHAM did.
      >Then he turned around and made another FIELD OF DREAMS and that made
      >money, too. Have a little faith that the man who has entertained

      >down with the movie SAHARA. Thank you all for your passion and

      >the nasty personal comments I have been receiving the last several
      >days, I do not care what you say about me but I do care what you say
      >about Dr. Cussler. He has been through a great deal this year
      >personally and he's still standing. He gives to more charitable
      >causes and individuals than I can count, quietly, and without fan

      >proud to have worked with and for him for nearly 18 years. Those
