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

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?

I just finished tonight "The Artic Event". I am living in Montreal Canada and I am working in finance. Not related at all with history,or military studies or work at all. However, I want to let know how much I absolutly enjoy reading your book. Reading it with enthousiasm from beginning to the end (meanwhile taking the bus transport going to work) .
This is for me one of the most passionate triller I have reed so far.
Only just one critic: At the end I would have make Mr Smyslov living here in America and be with Randi ... :)
I am a little sad that you left him with his problem in Russia after all he has done. From the start I felt he was a good and should be more upgraded ,on an other I am really glas that he did not died
Also please know that I really really enjoy your book,the way it is writting and facility to leave and to come back because of the short chapter that brought us to an other caracter/event.
The history and the military part that is a mistery for all of us was very informative.
have a good day

It has been years since I have been able to read about Amanda Garrett and her adventures. My being a female US Naval Officer, she has always been an inspiration to me... In fact there is something in "Sea Fighter" that I would love to talk to Mr. Cobb about. Does anyone know an e-mail address to where I could reach him?

It is almost a year since we heard from you James. How about an update on what you are writing. Or anything else yor fans would be interested in.
Are you ever planning to visit England?

I totally agree with Joe's comments. The Amanda Garrett books are works of fiction not historically accurate records. All authors try to get as accurate as possible but if they tried to be perfect in all the minute references to hardware etc the books would so thin on detail as to be a terrible read, or even worse never published at all for fear of offending the purists.
Carry on Mr Cobb, I think you are doing a great job with an excellent set of characters.

Hello There, a long time fan of the Amanda Garret series. Picked up the very first one on a lark and havn't looked back since! I will keep hoping and my eyes peeled for the 5th book! Please keep writing and keep up the good work! Signed a Fan :)

All of you Arm-Chair experts leave the Author(s) alone. Nobody wants to know how smart you are or what you've experienced. When an author like James Cobb writes he is trying, with dialog and description to weave a story line, I am an "Amanda Garrett" Fan, waiting for the next release, but I am not whining about differences. EG: DDG 79 is the USS Oscar Austin a Flight IIa Burke, not a XXI Destroyer and the fact that Randy Cunningham is an imprisioned felon make it unlikely that the Navy will name a garbage scow after him, inspite of his CMH. When an author changes something for his purposes it is called authors' license . . . Live with it!
