I'm wondering if James Cobb has considered self-publishing on the Kindle? I believe he could set the price (I'd be willing to pay the equivalent of "normal" fees - I'm sure others would as well).
I don't think self-publication would preclude an eventual print run either.
Just a thought. Has this already been discussed?

the fifth book was published in German, I just found it after doing a little digging. its for sale on amazon. to bad i can't read german. this is the blurb after i ran it through a translator:
The fifth volume of the military thriller series with Captain Amanda Garrett is about a coup attempt in Indonesia's island state, which could lead to a bloody and brutal ethnic conflict. Amanda Garrett and Sea Fighters are the last hope of thousands of innocents.
The book is called Duell in fremden Gewässern (Duel in Foreign Waters). Put that german title into amazon's search and it will come up. or you can put it in amazon.de for the full german listing.

What's the current status with the 5th Amanda Garret book Phantom Force? I heard it's been published in German already?

I enjoyed the Garrett thriller series and am now reading the C.S.Forester Hornblower series. In the third book (Hotspur) on page 180 Forester uses the phrase (Chooser Of The Slain). Is this a coincidence ? You must be a fan of the Hornblower books.

Whatever happened to James Cobb? Someone told me he had died. Is that correct?
I so enjoyed his sea stories.
he will be missed.

James, I recently finished the Arctic Event. Great read, fast paced and interesting situations.
I am a concept artist and illustrator and came up with something to illustrate the drama- ecsdesignvfx.com /blog/tu4.jpg
Keep up the great work.

I want the Amanda Garret books available to the kindle. Only route 66 seems to be available now. Please... I would buy them all. Doesn't your publisher react to this sort of query????

I just read "The First Cup of Coffee War" and was impressed. Not that far into the future. I retired from a program called "Talon Shield" and found you writing very much on the mark. Thanks for the read. Where did you get the background info?
