Dear John:
I was checking on your site for a copy of Blue Gold by Clive Cussler however am unable to find it. I understand that this book was only a paperback edition. Have you ever heard of the book Blue Gold being in a hardcover? Thanking you in advance to your response.

John Replies:
Dear Dan -
Blue Gold Clive CusslerBlue Gold (Clive Cussler with co-author Paul Kemprecos) was released by Penguin as an original paperback and as such, no standard hardcover edition was issued. However, two hardcovers were produced, one as a library binding (no dustjacket), and one as a Norwood Press Limited Edition. Norwood Press continues to produce special signed and numbered editions of each of Clive's different series. Unfortunately, the first two NUMA files, Serpent and Blue Gold, are sold out at the publisher and commanding substantially increased prices in the after market.
Best, John
