"This is a huge honor for me as Cussler's novels are one of the things that inspired me to begin reading in the mid-1990's,"
The three finalists will be announced approximately September 4, 2016.
"Only a single point divided the tenth spot from the four-way tie for eleventh," said Peter Greene, the competition director. "It literally came down to the last judge's submissions to get a top ten."
2016 was the largest entry field of fifty-eight qualifying entries out over almost seventy total entries.
"There were so many great entries, I think the judges had their hands full, but in the end, they did a great job. On to the manuscript round," said Greene. Judges now have almost a month to submit their scores.
The winner of the competition will be announced on Saturday evening, October 8th at the Clive Cussler Collector Society Convention held in Denver, Colorado.
