    Author Tom Clancy has died at the age 0f 66, sources with his publisher and family tell CNN.

    Clancy's first international military and espionage thriller was "The Hunt for Red October," published in 1984. Other best-sellers included "Red Storm Rising," "Patriot Games" and "Rainbow Six."

    I was never his reader but my sympathies to the millions who were. It's not an exaggeration to say that a mighty voice has been stilled. Just as a great title to a novel, 'The Hunt for Red October' is a hard one to beat (in terms of the subject-matter about which Clancy wrote, the only one better that I can think of is G.K. Chesterton's 'The Man Who Was Thursday'), and naming a novel ('Patriot Games') after an Irish ballad by Dominic Behan ('The Patriot Game') is also top-drawer stuff, to me.

    Rest in peace Tom Clancy.

    A tragic loss when the best leave us.
    Very sad indeed.
    RIP Tom Clancy.

    Imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery but parody is even better because those who are parodied immediately know one thing: they have been successful at what they do.

    Read the CIA's Parody Version of Tom Clancy's Most Famous Book. (Gawker)

    I couldn't get through many of his books, but the ones that I could - just wow. Hunt, Patriot, Sum, all of those.

    RIP, Tom...you brought joy and respect to many, many millions who served our country in the military whose actions all rely on but are never noticed.

    Go spin a yarn for God, all right?

    Best-
    Herding Cats

    Rest in peace, good sir. Such a tragedy, the world has certainly lost some of its brightness at your passing. :rose:
