Sad to note the passing of Tom Clancy in Baltimore MD yesterday at 66. He wrote 10 NY Times best sellers and sold more than 50 million books. Through the 80's and 90's I travelled through a lot of airports and read all his books several times and enjoyed seeing how many other travellers were reading the latest book and how far into it they were, made for interesting conversations.
Good consistent author, always enjoyed his work.
Favorite book: Red Storm Rising
Least Favorite: Red Rabbit It's cheating when you set a story in the 80's and wonder whether you should invest in an unknown company called "Starbucks"
On a trivia note, David Letterman was born on the same day as Clancy, April 12, 1947
