Tom Clancy R.I.P.

The "military thriller" novelist is dead at age 66. Of his work, I'll best remember his Red Storm Rising as it came out my senior year of college and I skipped a few classes to finish the damn thing. It was that good. (It's about a hypothetical World War III scenario ... but would come off as "dated" now, I'd wager.)

Heard about this earlier today. Very sad, as he was one of my favorite novelists. Red Storm Rising is one of the few Clancy books I HAVEN'T read, unfortunately.

His death came on the day they released the poster for the new Jack Ryan movie with Chris Pine and Keira Knightley.
