    I was saddened when Wilbur started with the co-authors.

    I also enjoyed Clive Cusslers escapism too but they too suffered when he started "co-writing"

    In his prime, Smith was truly a master storyteller.

    Interestingly, Smith has always been especially popular in Italy.

    A combination of their ability to draw you into the story but also your willingness to escape into it.

    Robert Ludlum was capable of doing this well.

    We should meet up sometime, bringing a Wilbur Smith novel each to read.. find some nice spot underneath a tree, and sit together reading.. and when one of us reads a particularly nice passage, he could nudge the other with his elbow, smile, and say, "Hey, mate.. listen to this".. and the other will laugh or exclaim and say something like, "Hell yeah, that's why I love Wilbur Smith"...
