Author Tom Clancy dies at age 66

Article here.

The NY Times article says President Reagen spoke of "The Hunt for Red October," his first novel, favorably, and it skyrocketed.

I have read all but his last two novels, I think, and enjoyed them all.

I've seen several of the movies but not read the books. I see that his latest book was written with a co-author which usually indicates an illness.

First class writer shame he died as 66 is not such a great age. I have read most of his books along with lots of Clive Cussler Rip Tom

I've read Clive Cussler, too. But, I found Clancy better. In my opinion, he is the best in the genre he pioneered, the military tecnno-thriller.

Tom Clancy was one of my favourite writers, along with Clive Cussler and Wilbur Smith.

I've read quite a few James Patterson books of late too


RIP TC

"Executive orders" was brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

He was scarily prophetic, too, which is talked about, here:

Coincidentally, I'm currently reading "Red Rabbit".

I only read one duffer, by Clancy. SSN.

One report I saw, had the military worried about how he knew so much, he was, apparently, surprisingly accurate.
