Meet the Author

Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognized as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed.

    King of Action & Adventure--much better than the film!

    If smart, fast-pace action and adventure is your bag, MacLean is your man. Having seen the film before I read the book, I can not express how much superior the story is in written form. There are twists and turns which just can't be expressed on film and MacLean captures the Cold War conflict beautifully.
