I too am anxiously awaiting Amanda's next adventure. Hope to see it on the shelves before Christmas.
Keep up the great work!

I have just put Amanda at the top of my Listmania List of "My Favourite Women" On Amazon.co.uk. It may increase your sales !!. Got to help you get Phantom Force published somehow. Although there are a few romances included it may be useful to your other readers. Ayone any better ideas?

Thanks for the update. I'm going slightly crazy wondering whats going to happen after Target Lock!
Glad to hear that Amanda will be back!

Okay, here's the word on Amanda.
Baen Books has elected to not pick up the Amanda series. No hard feelings, they just thought that its a little too far out of their chosen field.
But a second major publisher is looking at the series at this time and I'll give you the word on this just as soon as I hear anything myself.
However there is yet another new Amanda project under discussion. I can say no more at the moment as we don't have the contracts signed yet. I am not finished with the lady.
In the meantime, The Arctic Event is still on track for publication this September and Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine has just picked up another Kevin Pulasky hotrod mystery.

I still have not seen any listing for the new Amanda Garrett book. I have checked Baen website but still no joy!!I am suffering from Amanda deprivation.

Dear Mr. Cobb,
Definately enjoyed the short story from the Amanda Lee Garrette universe in the "Future Weapons" book from Baen. Keep up the great work! Look forward to many more ALG stories!

Dear Mr. Cobb:
Regardless of the opinions of some, I believe you are doing a wonderful thing in keeping the Ludlum name current while putting a different spin on his wonderful body of work and characterizations. Now on to important things---I need my Amanda fix. It really has been too long between sorties and I can't wait for her next adventure. Thank you.

Dear Mr Cobb, you are so wrong. When an autor dies, the best thing to reader can do is to reread the books he wrote and appreciate them again. But the travesty that you are a part of , of using a death mans name to fool readers, who buy a " brand " trust that brand not the cheat them. is shamefull and has only 1 reason and 1 only , money.
I bought the Ambler warning in an airport , in a hurry, trusting I was buying an original. In your thinking, sir, it would not matter when I buy a Coca Cola, that there is dishwashwater inside, as long as it looks the same right. Well, Mr Cobb, the taste is very different, just as the books from Mr Ludlum and those of his graverobbers
