Although he hasn't actually written a book in years and farmed out his name for all those spin off books written by others, a good chunk of my teen years were spent reading his ten million page Jack Ryan techno thrillers.

And of course, I've seen all of the movies based on his Jack Ryan books.

RIP Tom Clancy. (

The Ryanverse books continue to be some of my favorites to this day. And of course, that's not counting the games he attached his name to.

Command Authority is going to be his last published work, out in December.

RIP Tom Clancy.

I loved all of his books up until Jack became President then it got weird. The books were wonderful distractions and insight into the military for a 14 year old boy. Red October and Red Storm Rising are two of my favorite books.

I still remember his 9/11 CNN interview as it was either going or the next day where they asked if he thought anything like this could happen since most of his books are based on incidents like this. He was flat out stunned and said he could not comprehend the religious nature of a person who would attempt this let alone multiple people. It was my general feeling as well and it totally caught the interview off guard. It was probably my favorite moment out of any of his interviews. RIP Good man.

Not a fan of his work, though my Dad is and Tom Clancy books have been my go-to gift option for him for years.

And now that I know there are spin-off books out there too, I guess I will need to stat moving on to them next.

RIP Tom Clancy, and long live those who continue your stories

This really makes all of us who like SMALLVILLE kinda feel like we're getting fucked in the ass. Oh yeah, and now, yet another character made likeable by Peter David gets the shaft. (His SUPERGIRL has been completely forgotten and ignored by DC.)
