I have a sailing friend who knows Jim Cobb's brother. According to his brother, Jim Cobb is struggling with some sort of cancer. Let's all pray that Jim overcome this adversity and return to writing again.

This is totally from left field. I wouldn't know of Mr. Cobb except that a mutual fan put me on to the fact that he named a bunch of the hi-tech vehicles in "Sea Fighter" after characters in Elfquest. Which got me to read that volume, then seek out the others in the series. I just wanted to say hello and thanks for both some great reading and the literary shout out!

Where is this mythical 5th book and where can I buy it? Just checked Amazon, nothing new since Nov 2008. I wish Cobb would just get a very nice cover done and self publish on Amazon.
I'm not sure what happened back in the day but he either ticked someone off, or the series just didn't sell well enough to warrant anyone publishing the 5th book. I personally recommended Baen to him. But they couldn't come to a meeting of the minds and so here we are years later still waiting.
I feel for him I do, seems like he's had a tough row to hoe as a author. I still hope the 5th book will come out in English. Anyone know anyone in the movie industry? Help the man out. Best wishes for JHC.

Has something happened to Jim that I didn't hear about? (I hope not.) This forum has been dead for almost half a year and there's been no mention of him on the book sites that I've read. Also nothing about the long-awaited English version of the 5th Amanda Garrett book that was reportedly released in German long ago.

What does the H. stand for?
Also, what was your major in college?

Hi, Jim. Very long time no chat! Just a quick note to let you know that the Pacific NW Writers are holding a book fair at Freighthouse Square in Tacoma on 19 November. If you'd like to sell a few books and meet other writers and fans, the cost is $20 per table. You can deal directly w/ Freighthouse Square for a table, or let me know and I'll forward more info. And if you know of other writers who'd like to attend, they'd be quite welcome.
Hope to see you there.

its now Oct 2011, I acquired the book "Choosers of the Slain" in Puyallup. (used to live and work in the Tacoma area) I liked the story. Its set in 2006 and copyrighted 1996. In the story its mentioned playoff games between Philly and Vegas. VEGAS ?? where did that idea come from? Just curious.
Will find the next book in line somewhere.

Apparently The Infinity Affair isn't happening anymore. The next book is going to be The Ares Decision by Kyle Mill and going to be released in Oct 4, 2011. What happened??
