SUGGESTED FURTHER READINGS ON UNDERSEA WARFARE,
compiled by Joe Buff. Copyright 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003.

Dear Site Visitor and Reader:

My first two novels, DEEP SOUND CHANNEL and THUNDER IN THE DEEP, both included bibliographies. These were partial (and only partial!) listings of the many non-fiction references I studied cover-to-cover to gain a good factual basis for my stories. The two bibliographies are listed separately below -- there is some overlap, but since the two novels have separate plots and locales the two bibliographies also have many entries that are different. I hope these listings serve you as a guide for further reading. If you have any questions, please do E-Mail me by hitting the CONTACT button on my JoeBuff.com Website.

Yours truly,

--Joe Buff
