Клайв КАССЛЕР/Clive Cussler
США, 15.7.1931

Дата рождения: 15 июля 1931, США
Клайв Касслер — автор 16 книг о приключениях бесстрашного героя по имени Дирк Питт, который работает на государственную организацию под названием «НУМА» (NUMA: National Underwater and Marine Agency), и занимается обнаружением и подъемом затонувших кораблей, и океанографическими исследованиями. Вместе со своим напарником Альбертом Джиордино, Питт попадает в водоворот политических интриг, древних тайн, террористических заговоров, но всегда спасает положение в самых безнадежных ситуациях. Сам Клайв Касслер живет почти как его герой — вместе с NUMA он находит и поднимает с морского дна исторически важные суда. Среди 60 кораблей, в послужной список Касслера входят подводная лодка CSS Hunley и легендарный корабль Mary Celeste. Так же как и Питт, он коллекционирует старинные автомобили, и его коллекция насчитывает свыше 85 образцов классического автомобилестроения. Опубликовав первую книгу о похождениях Дирка Питта в 1973 году, Касслер создал одну из самых популярных приключенческих серий в мире. Суммарный тираж его романов превысил 100 миллионов экземпляров. А новейшая книга в серии, Valhalla Rising, вышла в августе 2001 года. Великий мастер жанра недавно начал другую художественную серию о деятельности NUMA с новым героем по имени Курт Остин. Помимо написания вымышленных романов, Касслер выпустил две книги о собственных подводных приключениях и о процессе создания своих фантастических героев.
Книга, принесшая Касслеру всемирную известность — «Поднять титианик!» («Raise the TITANIC!») — была экранизирована в 1980 году. Однако сам автор назвал этот фильм чудовищным и поклялся никогда больше не иметь дело с Голливудом. Действительно, картина не смогла перенести на экран блестящий триллер достойным образом. Но вот, 20 лет спустя, Касслер подписал контракт со студией Crusader Entertainment, по которому автор полностью контролирует процесс производства кинофильма. Эта сделка была названа «самой удачной в истории Голливуда». Первый фильм из четырех появится в кинотеатрах мира в 2004 году. В основу сюжета ляжет роман «Сахара» («Sahara»). И уже снят сериал по мотивам The Sea Hunters каналом National Geographic.

Juan Cabrillo and his expert team on the "Oregon" are used to working dirty, dangerous jobs. While diverting terrorist missiles, Cabrillo and the crew stumble on pirates in the seas of China - men who are more concerned with destroying ships with their "Shock and Awe" attacks than plundering their valuables. When the team grows desperate for all the information they can get, one of Juan's best men risks everything to get closer to the truth.
Soon, the "Oregon" team will discover that the pirates are hiding a much more deadly power: an international conspiracy of slavery that will rock the very foundations of the world's banks. Millions of dollars and thousands of lives are at stake - and Juan Cabrillo is their only hope...

In the waning days of World War II, the Japanese tried a last desperate measure, a different kind of kamikaze mission, this one carried out by two submarines bound for the west coast of the United States, their cargo a revolutionary new strain of biological virus. Neither sub made it to the designated target. But that does not mean they were lost. Someone knows about the subs and what they carried, knows too where they might be, and has an extraordinary plan in for the prize inside a plan that could reshape the world as we know it. All that stands in the way are three people: a marine biologist named Summer, a marine engineer named Dirk, and their father, Dirk Pitt, the new head of NUMA. Pitt has faced devastating enemies before, has even teamed up with his children to track them down. But never has he looked upon the face of pure evil until now. Filled with dazzling suspense and breathtaking action, "Black Wind" is Cussler at the height of his storytelling powers.

Atlantis Found

Dirk Pitt is on hand at a Colorado archaeological site where an ancient and mysterious artefact has been found -one that is perhaps linked to other strange objects turning up across the globe. And soon Pitt's skills and ingenuity are desperately needed to rescue the team after a suspicious explosion seals them deep underground.
It quickly becomes clear that the artefacts carry a message: a warning of global Armageddon. Yet a shadowy organization called the Fourth Empire not only wants to stop others from heeding that warning, but is also actively seeking to accelerate the end it foretells. Now Pitt and NUMA must face this diabolical foe, who will stop at nothing to wipe out all life on earth...

For four novels, Clive Cussler has charted the exploits of the Oregon, a covert ship completely dilapidated on the outside, but on the inside packed with sophisticated weaponry and intelligence-gathering equipment. Captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo and manned by a crew of former military and spy personnel, it is a private enterprise, available for any government agency that can afford it - and now Cussler sends the Oregon on its most extraordinary mission yet.
The crew has just completed a top-secret mission against Iran in the Persian Gulf, when they come across a cruise ship adrift at sea. Hundreds of bodies litter its deck, and as Cabrillo tries to determine what happened, explosions rack the length of the ship. Barely able to escape with his own life and that of the liner's sole survivor, Cabrillo finds himself plunged into a mystery as intricate - and as perilous - as any he has ever known, pitted against a cult with monstrously lethal plans for the human race ... plans he may already be too late to stop.

In the remote wastes of Greenland, a young scientist has unearthed an artifact hidden in a cave for A millennium: a 50,000 year-old meteorite known as the Sacred Stone - which he soon discovers possesses potentially catastrophic radioactive power. But the astounding find places him in the crosshairs of two opposing terrorist groups who seek the stone for themselves.
One is a group of Muslim extremists who have stolen a nuclear device. With the power of the meteorite, they could vaporize any city in the west. The other group is led by a megalomaniacal industrialist who seeks to carry out the utter annihilation of Islam itself.
Caught between two militant factions bent on wholesale slaughter, Juan Cabrillo and his ship of high-tech mercenaries known as the Corporation must fight to protect the scientist and the Sacred Stone - and prevent the outbreak of World War III...
