    Haven't read him for many years but I really enjoyed his stuff back when I was reading him. There were some pretty decent movies made from his books, too.

    I think the Red October took him for divulging its secret making a new conspiracy for future Clancy fans.

    We will miss him.

    In nineties I read all his novels that were printed in Poland - I think that basically meant everything up to Rainbow Six.

    I was a big fan as well. I really enjoyed his detailed character development, and how he wove the stories with so much detail about so many characters at once.

    I also liked the fact that he used some misinformation in his novel about making the nuclear weapon -- he gave a lot of details, but enough were wrong so that an effective nuclear weapon couldn't be made using his novel.

    I have a lot of Clancy books in the shelves. Good stuff.

    Same here; Rainbow Six is my favorite, followed closely by Op-Center.

    RIP, Mr. Clancy! :frown:
