Tom Clancy passed away October 1. A great storyteller with deep knowledge of technical material, especially considering he was an insurance agent when he wrote Hunt for Red October.

Sad news. I still play the Splinter Cell series of games.

Red October one of my favorite pictures from that era.

Terrific entertainment and production all around.

Sad news, and not that old at all. Leaves a great legacy, though.

wonder if his habits contributed to death at that age>
I do not know, but he seems like the kinda guy that might enjoy a cigar and some scotch.

This was a shock when I heard the news.

I've actually never read any of his books, but I love the first three Jack Ryan movies.

He and Michael Crichton were generally considered fathers of the modern day techno-thriller. Sad that both are gone now, at the same (not all that old) age, too.
