We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to try to answer some of the most common questions we receive. If you have any additional questions that you think we might be able to answer, please feel free to send them along for our review. We'd love to hear from you!

Q. I have a book I'd like to sell; can I see if any CCCS members are interested?

A. Sure! As a member of the CCCS, you are encouraged to contact other members through the society's mailing list, the Cussler mailing list. Please note however, that we will discourage any unfair trading practices between members. If you have an extensive list, we'd be glad to post it in PDF format in our Members Only For Sale section. Simply send in MS Word format to our editors for review at forsale@cusslersociety.com.

Q. How can I contribute an article to The Sea Dweller newsletter?

A. We recommend you develop a proposal for an article and submit it via e-mail to articles@cusslersociety.com. Upon review, we will be better able to tell you if it might fit our publication.

Q. Can I buy additional copies of the NUMA NEWS and other promotional items for friends who are not members of the CCCS?

A. Members can purchase some items for non-members, but any items with limited (e.g. only 1 per member) will be strictly enforced.

Q. I'm starting a collection of Cussler first editions. Where do I start and what should I pay?

A. First you might take a look at our list of Cussler First Editions, located right here on our site. You also should be aware that prices vary greatly according to the condition, the market, and the seller. Posing this question to the CCCS membership is recommended and will elicit varied responses. There is also a price guide available in Collector's Guide to Clive Cussler.

Q. Are hardcopies of the The Sea Dweller newsletter available to members?

A. For a nominal fee, hardcopies of The Sea Dweller are available to members.

Q. Where can I find out about Clive Cussler book signings and appearances?

A. For the most current and up-to-date information about book signings and appearances, you should visit www.penguinputnam.com and www.numa.net. Of course our members are informed quickly of these types of events through our members-only mailing list.

Q. Can we exchange links on your Web site?

A. If you site is related to Cussler and is approved by our editorial board, we would be glad to link to your site. Please feel free to link to us as well!

Q. I can't log into the "Members Only" section. What am I doing wrong?

A. The CCCS requires a username and password to access the Member's Only section of our Web site. To access this area, click on the Member's Only link on the CCCS site. After clicking on the link, a pop-up window should appear prompting you to enter your assigned username and password. If this pop-up does not appear, one of two problems have probably occurred.

You should first check to make sure you are not running special software that blocks pop-up windows. Although this software might be great for blocking certain types of advertisements, it also blocks your ability to log into the Member's Only section of our site. You can remedy this problem by temporarily turning off this software. We also suggest that when you login, you use the "remember me" functionality so you will not be prompted in the future. After you have logged into the Member's Only area, you can then return to your pop-up blocking settings.

If you are not running pop-up blocking software, you may have JavaScript disabled in your browser. Sometimes JavaScript is used to run special programs on a Web site. The CCCS uses JavaScript extensively so it must be activated in your browser in order for the site to work properly.

To Turn on JavaScript

  1. In your Internet Explorer browser, select the Tools menu and then click on Internet Options.
  2. Click on the Security tab (at the top of the dialog box).
  3. Click the Custom Level ... button.
  4. Scroll down to the option labeled Scripting of Java applets and select the
  5. Enable-ON radio button.
  6. Click Ok.
  7. Click Ok again.
