Come on somebody let us know what's going on with the last book. We've been loyal readers I think somebody could tell us a little bit about what's going on. Thank you

I was very saddened to find out that James Cobb had passed away.
I have read all of the Amanda Garrett series numerous times and had to replace my copy of SeaFighter once already because I love the books so much, I will probably have to replace the other books soon as well.
I'm just wondering if the sequel to Target Lock (Phantom Force) will ever be published in the UK ?
The reason I ask is that I have found out some details on wikipeda about a particular part of the plot detail which makes me believe that an English language manuscript must be available for publishing.
I have even had an idea to write my own story to continue the Amanda Garrett series as they are my favourite naval thrillers.

What about the last book. Does anybody have any details ?? Surely somebody has a manuscript in English that could be published. I gotta believe that would be Mr Cobb's wishes plus the money would surely help the family.

Mr. Cobb. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your books especially the Amanda Garret series. Brilliant reading. I've been wondering why no new material has been published and now I know. I wish you all the best in your recovery.

My condolences to Jim's family in this time of loss.
I am a huge fan of his work and I will miss the adventures of Amanda Garrett the most.
I wonder if the 5th book can now be published in English to help support his family, I for one would contribute to any crowd funding or e-publishing effort.

Good Morning to all James H. Cobb fans and friends. Jim is my cousin, and with a heavy heart I feel compelled to inform his audience that he passed away the other night (July 8, 2014) at 10:15pm surrounded with love by his mother and close friends. He will be buried in the family (Nygaard) cemetery plot in Idaho Falls, ID. No local service or memorial dates have been set yet. Thank you for loving his talent as he chose to express it.

Jim, Thanks so much for the information on James Cobb. Although the news is not good, at least some of us now know why no more books. Please let him know that we are all praying for his recovery. Not just for our selfish reasons but him as well. Anyone that has given us so much should be able to reap and enjoy his own life
Like many others I have just re-read all four of his Amanda series and now hope there will be another.
Get well Mr Cobb.

My name is Jeff Knutson, and I've been a long time friend of Jim's since 1975. So for all of you out there that want to know a little more about him, here you go.
The reason there hasn't been anything new coming out, is because Jim has been battling with non-Hodgkin lymphoma for the past 6 years. He has been trying to write, but the medications and treatment have not allowed him to keep his thoughts in tact enough to write.
He is currently working on two new novels (the titles of which, have not been determined). One is a fantasy book and the other is a UFO Historical-Fiction book. I have only read small excerpts of the Fantasy book, so I can't tell you much about that one, but the UFO book is FANTASTIC!! If Jim is unable to complete either of the books, I will be talking to his Mother about finding a writer, or writers to help finish the stories, and get them out there.
I will try and get some more information together, and post it here (and on other sites) when I get it all together.
Since his death appears to be approaching us sooner than later, Jim asked me to put together and give Jim's eulogy.
Jim is Currently being treated at Tacoma General Hospital.
Oh yes ... The "H" in James H. Cobb stands for Jim's namesake, his uncle Harvey.
If anyone wants to pass on a message to him, just send me an email.

Anyone have any idea where I can buy Target Lock ? I have it in paperback but really want this to finish my collection in e-books of Mr. Cobb
