He's just not high profile, on the best seller charts lately. The last few years there have been several of the "co-author" books, or his name is one the cover. Usually paperbacks. But quite a while since he's had a big blockbuster like back in the 80's.

I found one just recently published Every Man a Tiger, about the air war in Iraq. No joke- the Amazon sales ranking #970,544 !

Well, he can certainly afford retirement!

He's made a mint by licensing his name out on games like Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell, etc.

Money you don't have to work for is the best kind.

At 60+ years of age, I imagine he's slowed down quite a bit.

More: I found out he had bypass surgery in 2006. I guess he's fine now, because his wife threw him a big birthday party for his 60th on the Battleship New Jersey. Lots of celebrities, like Buzz Aldrin, were there.

Also they had a daughter born in 2004- so maybe enjoying "late in life" parenting.

Yeah, if I had as much money as him, I'd probably not feel like working too hard either.

All the best to Mr. Clancy, eat, drink and be merry....then get back to your keyboard and get busy, this is prime time for your genre.

He made the local news last week, his deck caught fire. They were home at the time, but nobody was hurt.
