Meet the Author

At one time, Tom Clancy was an obscure Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history and only a letter to the editor and a brief article on the MX missile to his credit. Years before he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red Octoberthe story of a Russian submarine captain who defects to the United Statessold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn” and “non-put-downable.” Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.



Clancy’s next novel, Red Storm Rising, took on U.S./Soviet tension by providing a realistic modern war scenario arising from a conventional Soviet attack on NATO. Other bestsellers followed: Patriot Games dealt with terrorism; Cardinal of the Kremlin focused on spies, secrets and the strategic defense initiative; Clear and Present Danger asked what if there was a real war on drugs; The Sum of All Fears centered around post-Cold War attempts to rekindle U.S./Soviet animosity; Without Remorse took on the rising U.S. drug trade and Vietnam War era POW’s; and Debt of Honor explored the hazards of American/Japanese economic competition, the vulnerability of America’s financial system, and the dangers of military downsizing. In light of the events of September 11, 2001, Debt of Honor demonstrated once and for all Clancy’s cutting-edge prescience in predicting future events. The novel ends with a suicide attack against the U.S. Capitol Building by a terrorist flying a 747 out of Dulles airport.





Clancy’s uninterrupted string of best sellers continued with Executive Orders, which combined the threat of biological and conventional terrorism with the instability of the Persian Gulf region; Rainbow Six, which explored the dual threats posed by former Soviet intelligence operatives willing to sell themselves to the highest bidder, and genetically engineering bio weapons; and The Bear and The Dragon, which posited a limited war between China, the U.S. and Russia.





Clancy’s nonfiction works include Submarine, Armored Cav, Fighter Wing, Marine, and Airbornea series of guided tours of America’s warfighting assets. He has also written three books in an extraordinary nonfiction series that looks deep into the art of war through the eyes of America’s outstanding military commanders. Into The Storm: A Study in Command, written with armor and infantry General Fred Franks Jr., and Every Man a Tiger, written with Air Force General Chuck Horner, won unanimous praise for their detailed exploration of traditional war-fighting from the ground and from the air. The third book in the Commanders series, Shadow Warriors: Inside the Special Forces, written with General Carl Stiner, former commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command, tells the story of the soldiers whose training, resourcefulness, and creativity make them capable of jobs that few other soldiers can handle, in situations where traditional arms and movement don’t apply.  







In 1995 Martin H. Greenberg was honored by the Mystery Writers of America with the Ellery Queen Award for lifetime achievement in mystery editing. He is also the recipient of two Anthony awards. Mystery Scene magazine called him "the best mystery anthologist since Ellery Queen." He has compiled more than 1,000 anthologies and is the president of TEKNO books. He lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

    Most disappointing Clancy I've read

    The huge amount of unnecessary detail in this book left me wondering about Clancy's influence on the writing. The first 100+ pages were spent explaining greed & bigotry as reasons to have the 'superbug' that didn't relate to anything further on in the book. The excruciating scientific detail about how the virus was designed, applied, triggered and ultimately countered left me snoring.

    A Must Read for everyone!

    11/26/01 various locales: I've just finished reading this disturbing and engrossing novel and am anxiously awaiting Tom Clancy's next book in this series. The intricate plots are so time relevant to all us now, following the 9/11/01 attacks, that it chills you to the core.....a must read for all!

    The suspenseful story with a dark cold twist.

    Tom Clancy tells a fictional story about Harlan DeVane, the most dangerous man of the century. Harlan DeVane plants bio-chemical bombs all around the globe. Then he sells the detonator triggers to foreign terrorists around the country. I like the ironic book because the ending was superb. Tom Clancy tells the book in a more detailed style. Relating to this book is in more of a terrorist mind set. If you seek a book with suspense, a book with a twist then drop everything and pick up this book.

    Bio-strike Makes Up!

    I have now completed the series and I am pleased w/politika and bio-strike the others were not as impressive or amusing. I liked the book with it having more action sequences and more irony and less confusing talk about stuff I have not yet to relate. This book was a little drawn out but I recommend it!

    A Fantastic Book... Clancy Shines

    Tom Clancy has always been one of my favorite authors, producing fantastic, thrilling books like Rainbow Six and Bio-Strike. Bio-Strike is an excellent book full of suspense and detail... a great book that can't be missed!

    Disappointing

    I was expecting something as exciting and suspenseful as Executive Decision. Instead I read something as boring as watching paint dry on a wall. Don't waste your money
