More About the Author

John Campbell is the author of seven novels, a collection of short stories, and one nonfiction book. Using his experience as a U.S. Naval officer, and his extensive experience in the aerospace industry, he began his first novel in 1976 with a story about an attempt by North Korean special forces to hijack a U.S. nuclear aircraft carrier. Fifteen years later Raid On Truman was published in hardbound and paperback and was translated into Japanese for hardbound and paperback sales in Japan. That was the fulfillment of a dream to become a published novelist. He sold a second novel on the heels of the first. COBRA DANE was published in paperback in 1995. A third novel, Sub Zero, quickly followed and was published in 1996 along with publication in Japan.

John has written four more novels, Vauclain's Shield, Hidden Sun, These Final Hours, and The Telekinetic Man and a screenplay derived from The Telekinetic Man and is in the process of trying to sell them.

Another book was published in 2003 just before the Iraqi War. Desert War was a nonfiction look at how the war might be conducted, weapons systems, intelligence gathering, and forces on both sides. While John was the author, his daughter, Christine researched the work.

Influenced initially by the works of Ian Fleming and his brand of no-holds-barred action and intrigue, John has tried to bring to readers that same action elements, but with a large dose of sobering reality. Violence has profound consequences and the characters within John's novels feel all the passion and agony of real people.

Raid On Truman, COBRA DANE, Sub Zero, Vauclain's Shield, These Final Hours, The Telekinetic Man, and Hidden Sun are available on Amazon's Kindle Store. Note that COBRA DANE has for its cover image a picture of the actual COBRA DANE radar on the island of Shemya in the Aleutians. Vauclain's Shield's cover image has a photo of actual reentry vehicles passing through the atmosphere over Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific, and Raid On Truman has a real picture of the USS Harry Truman taken by the author.

A collection of fourteen sci-fi/horror/paranormal short stories, A Case of the Vapors was added to the Kindle store in August 2013. These stories run the gamut from the humorous A Case of the Vapors to the somber, but hopeful, The Iron Sergeant.

Sub Zero has both and combines it with a well balanced action theme to make the story well worth the read.

John Campbell has has written an exciting tale full of action and suspense. An isolated American base in the Pacific finds itself invaded by a ruthless enemy. Campbell's heros have character and stubborness, and the way the bad guys finally get theirs in the end is brilliant. I recommend this book to break up any boring day.

JOHN T. CAMPBELL is an exceptional Action Adventure Author. Has all the best in his books. Submarines, Aircraft, Military, CIA., warfare and enemies of the U.S. You're in the Subs, on the aircraft and warships. Fighting to survive in battle. Characters are easy to identify with. The action starts from page one. Your Instantly drawn into the plots.There are several players that interact throughout his books. Each chapter takes you to actions of the different players . In other words . Never boring

One of the stronger parts of Mr.Campbell's books is the depth and the completion . All questions are answered and the Epilogue completes the books. I really enjoy the fact his books don't take the quick and easy ending. He goes way beyond a lot of Authors whose books lack depth and end quickly with little reward for the readers. Just when you think the books are about to end he throws another aspect into the mix.

I've read them all. Highly recommend his book to others. You'll be hooked and won't be able, to put the books down. Only wish is he 20 more like these.

As one who currently lives and works on Kwajalein, the locations depicted in the book are right on the money. The plot keeps the action going until the very end. Recommended.

Unfortunately, this is one of those books you should warn other potential readers about. It does read fast, but not well. The formatting is defective on my Paperwhite (half-width columns mixed with full-width columns), it is unbearably verbose, the plot (what very little there is) moves at a snail's pace, and it's somewhat boring. It is insufficiently edited. The situations seem unrealistic. It is not really entertaining and I will not read more from this author.

It is a work of fiction based on the authors opinion and view of technology, world politics and options of his characters. It kept me interested and the characters were believable. I will read more of this author.

Good story and great premise but drags a little as some scenes are too focused on unnecessary details. But overall a good read

This is one book I could not put down. It is fast-paced right from the giddy-up. There is no whoa in this book. As an ex-submariner, I read lots of sub books and this was one of the best and it was not all about sub-to-sub intrigue. There is an exciting land skirmish with a bunch of civilians and a few military guys fighting the bad guys that left me breathless. Excellent!!

Although the storyline had some merit, the author showed poor understanding of American submarine function and capability. Only an incompetent crew and an inept captain could perform as demonstrated within this story--there would be many careers coming to an abrupt end. On the other hand, an able bodied crew would have brought this book to an end within 30 pages.
