    Will that dunderhead Alex Jones call Clancy's death suspicious and say it's a conspiracy given the subjects of Clancy's novels?

    some great games based off of his books as well. The Division looks pretty badass. Was he working on anything in the meantime like Vince Flynn was in the middle of a book when he passed?

    at some point it wasn't even him, somewhere around Rainbow Six he licensed his name and other people churned them out.

    Wow, didn't even know he was having health issues. I read a lot of his earlier books, and my dad has probably read everything he wrote. RIP.

    Not to mention some great movies also.

    Damn. I was kinda hoping for a Robert Jordan like death in that he left some huge cliffhanger in his last book and then died before completing the next one.

    I've never read a Clancy title, but still, he was a fantastic author that got people to read, and for that, I respect him. RIP dude

    I remember seeing him all over the news after Sept 11th, because he had a plot point in one of his books that an airliner was used as a weapon against congress.

    Sounds like a great idea.

    The event spanned two books. Two really good books. I've read all his Ryan series, and most of the following series written ghost writers. Nothing high brow, per se, but always enjoyable.
