Lots and lots of people have been asking about this for the past few months.  So here you go:

Ben Ripley and his friends are training in Alaska when Cyrus Hale is kidnapped by his old Russian nemesis.

I am aware that there is not a whole lot of information in that synopsis.  The reason for that is, the more you know about a book before you read it, the less fun it will be to read.  I don’t want to ruin any surprises. So if you write to me and ask for more information about what happens, in this book, I’m not going to give it to you.  I’m just going to tell you to re-read this page again.

    I don’t know what the font is, but it probably mentioned on one of the first pages of the book. The one with all the publication information in tiny print.

  2. Hi! I was wondering if you knew that when I buy a book by you at any book store that was probably SSBI or later it was “signed”(had your signature on the first 2 pages). If you did know but the signatures weren’t real, why?

  3. Spinach Ice Cream –

    Those books have absolutely been signed by me. I signed thousands of pages (known as ‘tip-ins’ before the books are printed and they are then bound into the books. So if you have a book with my signature, I legitimately signed it.

    I have presigned a lot of books, but if you want to guarantee that you get one with the signature, you ought to contact your local, independent bookstore. Amazon definitely won’t have presigned books.

  5. We are the same age as Ben Ripely and it is dream to become a spy. You are also the best author ever!

  6. Mr. Gibbs
    Your books are the best books I have ever read!
    Will you ever make another Space Case book?

  7. Robert –

    Sadly I have ended the MBA series for now. I have an older blog post explaining why.

    1) Ben definitely liked Jessica.

    2) I don’t know. Please see my blog post about Questions I Can’t Answer.

  9. Dear Mr. Gibbs

    I am very excited to see the new release of Spy school 11. I have been camping my local Barnes & Nobles on the release date on all the books since Spy school 6 including all the Fun Jungle books as well. I wish you well and I am still looking for signed copy.

    If you really want a signed copy of one of my books, check out the Signed Copies page of this website, which will tell you how to get one.

  11. My son read this whole series this year and he’s been looking forward to this new book for months! Any chance you’ll be making a visit to Unlikely Story in Plainville, MA? We’re holding off on a pre-order hoping he gets the chance to meet you and get a signed copy there 🙂

    Unfortunately, I was at Unlikely Story at this time last year, so it’s not on my schedule for this year. Hopefully next year!
