Sad news has been announced that author Tom Clancy has died aged just 66 in a hospital in Baltimore.

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Tom Clancy studied literature at the Loyola College in Baltimore and was originally an insurance salesman before becoming famous for writing technically detailed espionage and military science books.
He is responsible for best-selling books such as "The Hunt for Red October," "Patriot Games," "Clear and Present Danger," and "The Sum of All Fears" — all of which were adapted into major Hollywood films.
In 1996, Clancy co-founded the video game developer Red Storm Entertainment and has had his name on several of Red Storm's most successful games.

He was my favourite author, a master at character introduction and his attention to detail was immense.
My personal favourite novels are Without Remorse, Red Storm Rising, and The Bear and the Dragon. I cannot recommend them enough.

Mr Clancy, you will be sadly missed.

Respect.
