I love the Amanda Garrett novels. Sad maybe but they are now among my "comfort books". Whilst waiting for the next installment, try a Brit author for similar authentic, fast battle action? Mike Lunnon Wood (Harper Collins) has three crackers: "King's Shilling", "Long Reach" and "Heraklion Blue", all featuring Royal Navy frigates and destroyers plus Marine Commando action.

Yes it saya the same in my 1997 copy of Stormdragon. You would have thought someone else would have noticed before now. But even after several re-reads I did not. But I only use the 24hr clock in connection with flights so it just did not matter.

Re.: Sea Strike
Hard Cover, Page 46, Line 7 (From the bottom).
Captain Garrett is scheduling a meeting. "...division heads for oh one hundred hours this afternoon."
0100 hours is 1am (after midnight); that should have been 1300 hours (afternoon noon, "this afternoon").
Being a new reader of your material, I would hope that you strive for maximum accuracy in your novels.

Hello, I'm a fan from Germany too and I'm thankful for this message board, cause that's the only place (for german fans) to get news about my favorite novel. In Germany it's very difficult to get more of James Cobb (in german language) than the paperback Amanda Garrett novels. So I hope there will be a new one soon. Greetings from Germany, Friederike

Dear Stella & Company
Honest to Gosh I've been trying to post here for the past couple of months but for some reason the board just hasn't been picking them up.
I'll give it anothert try though.
1; Currently I'm working on my second book in Robert Ludlum's Covert One series, but due to aspects of the contracting I can't talk about that yet.
2; We are still working on getting the 5th Amanda book out there but for a number of reasons I can't talk about that yet.
3; There is the possiblity of an all new Amanda project in the near future involving another major technothriller author but I can't talk about that yet either.
I can say that the next new Kevin Pulaski hot rodding mystery story will be out in the August issue of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and that I'll be a guest panelist at Norwescon 31 in Seattle, WA. this March 20-23
