A moment of silence is in order for the man that founded Red Storm Entertainment, and gave us some of the best tactical games in history. Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell.

Oh God no....

Well the quality of everything with the Tom Clancy brand on it has been decreasing since some time (mostly because of not so good ghostwriters) but this mans work has given me hundreds of hours of joy during my youth. May he rest in peace. :(

I just heard an hour ago or so. I'm still stunned. Chill bumps. The world lost one hell of a writer yesterday, and will be worse off because of it. :(

His books allowed me an escape. I could read for 8 hours straight and it'd only feel like 2. They were the only constant in my life for a long time, and got me through major surgery and the painful months before and after. They helped save my life, on multiple occasions. I just... I'm stunned.

Tom Clancy is my only favourite author. All the books I have read have been anything but dull. Rest in peace, Tom.

May he rest in peace and his russophobic nonsence which he wrote.
