  • Tom Clancy dead at 66... RIP.

    R.I.P. Tom Clancy... and thanks for years of entertainment. (Books and video games.)

    That man could not write inter-personal dialouge to save his life, but boy could he weave a plot.

    Personally, The Hunt for Red October and the Cardinal of the Kremlin will be tied for my favorite novels of his.

    Followed closely by The Sum of All Fears and then Rainbow Six.

    A very talented author will be missed.

      I am sad to see this happen. I enjoyed his works and the many weaves he wove...

        In a few years, once the massive US Gov't coverup unravels, we'll find out the truth - that he was done in by a commando unit of Guatemalan revolutionaries, whose motives appeared to be an attempt to prevent the exposure of the largest drug-running ring in Central America, which was silently funding their revolution. But that motive was only a carefully crafted ruse, the whole op was bankrolled by the Russians, who were trying to prevent the exposure of their next-generation stealthy STOL troop transport, which Clancy had uncovered during a resource-gathering trip to Nicaragua.

        I'm going to miss those stories. Rainbow Six, Red Rabbit, The Bear and the Dragon... There's not a story of his I didn't enjoy. Rest in Peace.

          Wow, I hadn't heard that news until reading this. :(

          Only 66? Too young for such a great light to be extinguished...

          Strait, a fitting tribute. :) Will rep tomorrow when I'm not on Tapatalk.

            Such a shame, a great writer. Red Storm Rising blew my mind, and I still maintain if followed properly it would make the greatest 6 hour movie ever made.
