Home > About Us

Incorporated February of 2002, the Clive Cussler Collector's Society (CCCS) has a membership that consists of both fans and serious collectors from around the world. Through our society, enthusiasts are able to learn more about past, present, and future Cussler related projects as well as locate other fans and collectors throughout the world. Through interaction with members and publications by Wayne Valero, members have extensive access to bibliographic information related to Cussler, his writing, co-writers, current news and other publications.

Through the CCCS, we strive to produce and preserve an accurate historical record of all events pertaining to Clive Cussler. Originally created as an informal group, the society has now become the premier organization for people who admire the life's work of Clive Cussler.
