One of the most common questions posed our membership relates to the identification of Cussler first editions. In addition to the information provided below, we highly recommend Wayne Vallero's book titled The Collector's Guide to Clive Cussler that provides a complete overview of Cussler collecting. In the near future, the CCCS hopes to provide a detailed on-line bibliography for or members. Each title is listed chronologically according to year of publication.
