(Publisher’s Weekly, Mar. 23)
Though Cussler doesn’t tour for his books, he flew to New York City this past weekend to accept an award at the Explorers Club in recognition of his searchs for long-lost ship-wrecks. (One of his most famous finds was the Hunley, a Civil War sub that sank and was then lost off the coast of the Carolinas for more than 100 years.) With 364,000 copies in print, Corsair is Cussler’s 37th book and the sixth Oregon files adventure (co-author is Jack Du Brul).
