Does anyone have a list of books written by these authors?  I am sure some are no longer in print, based on an Amazon search, But, I am fortunate that there are a few used book stores near where I live. 
  Also I am only about a one-and-a half hours drive from the Sub Force Museum in Groton. I visit there quite often, and am adding to my library. 
  Oh yeah, when the weather is warm enough, I take the bike and visit the Albacore.  They have a good selection of new books. Thanks for any info you can provide.

I googled some of the names and found each had a listing of their books. 
Be Well

You are probably referring to "Nautilus 90 North."  He also has 'Ice Diary" and " Atomic Submarines and Polaris."

I just finished reading The Ice Diaries by Capt. William R Anderson with Don Keith.

Kindle $7.99

Good Read.  Lots of familiar names!
