A farewell to a good man

Post by M240B on Wed 2 Oct 2013 - 15:52

Yesterday, October 1st, author Tom Clancy died, at the age of 66, in a Baltimore hospital.

This man wrote many military thrillers, such as Patriot Games, The Hunt for Red October, which later spawned movies and even games, like the Rainbow Six series. He was also someone for whom I based my writing off of. No, I don't match his style directly, but he was the framework for which I latched onto. He meant a lot to me, and many, many others. That's all that counts.

So, here's to you sir. I hope you find yourself somewhere nice. You deserve it.

Thank you for all the great stories Tom and for being a big inspiration to me as a writer. We will miss you greatly.

Cry Cry Cry Cry


In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

I liked a great many of his books, but my favorite was 'Without Remorse'. No gee-whiz tech, very little military jargon, just solid storytelling and riveting characterization.

Mario Bossi would make a better handler than Marco Toni. Come to think of it, so would Christiano.
Elizaveta didn't jump - she was pushed.
Sofia was pregnant. It would have been a boy.
