Re: Tom Clancy dead at 66

I don't know a great deal about Clancy, but I do know that he was a thorough researcher and his thoughts and scenarios regarding the Cold War seem very calculated and interesting. Maybe we could pay tribute by reading into his literature a little.

Re: Tom Clancy dead at 66

So, was this the same Tom Clancy responsible for the 'Ghost Recon' series?
{or was in some way associated with?}

He co-founded the company that develops the games, and (assumedly) he provided a lot of political/military detail elements. It's pretty unlikely that he was directing their development or anything.

Re: Tom Clancy dead at 66

I was gonna merge this with the celebrity death topic but I think this is an ok exception since his name is big in the game industry and it's so sudden.

I never read his books or played his games but I appreciate his talent. He died too young.

Re: Tom Clancy dead at 66

He definitely was one of the best thriller novelists the world has ever seen... he will be missed. My all time favorite novel of his is The Hunt for Red October. Liked the movie, too
