Tom Clancy (1989)

Thomas "Tom" Leo Clancy Jr. (born April 12, 1947 in Baltimore , Maryland ; † October 1, 2013 ibid) was an American writer who wrote under the name Tom Clancy and was particularly popular for his political thrillers such as B. Hunt for Red October is known. Over 100 million copies of his books have been printed.

Clancy was also a co-owner of the major league baseball team Baltimore Orioles .

Life and work


Thomas Leo Clancy Jr. was born in Baltimore . He attended Loyola Blakefield High School in Towson , graduating in 1965. After high school, he graduated from Loyola College with a degree in English-language literature (BA 1969). Clancy then applied for the Reserve Officer Training Corps , but was declared unfit for duty due to poor eyesight. Before he published his first novel, he ran an independent insurance agency for some time, which was then bought by a group of investors. In 1993, he joined a group of investors that bought the Baltimore Orioles baseball team . In 1998 he also wanted to buy the Minnesota Vikings , which failed because of the purchase price.


Clancy married his first wife, Wanda, in 1969. The marriage was divorced in 1999. On June 26, 1999, he married the journalist Alexandra Marie Llewellyn, whom he had met in 1997. She is the daughter of J. Bruce Llewellyn, a wealthy American businessman who introduced Clancy to former US Secretary of State Colin Powell .

In 2008 the rights to Tom Clancy's name were sold to the French software manufacturer Ubisoft . He is allowed to use the name for his products.

Clancy died on October 1, 2013, at the age of 66, at Johns Hopkins Hospital in his hometown of Baltimore.


Clancy's political thrillers mostly take place against the background of the work of secret services and the military, whereby a pro-American point of view is always represented. This manifested itself in particular in the subjects which, in the context of the Cold War, addressed the East-West contrast and US-American and Soviet thought patterns. In the books set after 1990 he emphasizes very strongly the difference between a democratic Russia and the communist Soviet Union.

Although the literary style of his books has been controversial among many professional authors and critics, most of his books are bestsellers. The followers of his work like the actions they consider to be well thought out and the sometimes extreme attention to technical details. Clancy owes this wealth of detail to his numerous contacts with the US military, which presumably values ​​his style and his pro-American perspective, which also includes the American legal system and the American military as good and generally rarely expresses criticism of the system.

In recent years, Clancy's books have become more politicized and show many of his, in the American sense, more conservative , pro-military views as well as his legal ideas and their enforcement. Especially in his book In the Eye of the Tiger, the critics and European fans criticized an anti-European mood, which they associate with the rejection of the Iraq conflict in Europe. In order from above (English title:. Executive Orders ) is its main fictional character Jack Ryan President of the United States . Some Clancy fans objected to this ambiguous move from intelligence to politics. Even so, his books continue to sell well.

In 1997, Clancy signed a contract with Pearson Custom Publishing and Penguin Putnam Inc. , both part of Pearson Education , which earned him $ 50 million and secured the contractors' worldwide marketing of his next two books in English. He then signed a second $ 25 million contract for a four-year book and multimedia agreement. This was immediately followed by contract number 3 for $ 22 million with the ABC for the publication of 24 paperback books in connection with the ABC television miniseries Tom Clancy's Net Force . Combined with $ 190 million in proceeds from The Attack , Clancy made at least $ 300 million.

After the attacks of September 11th, Clancy was allegedly called in by the American government as an advisor - in debt of honor he had designed a scenario that came very close to the later reality.

The publication of his new novel of the Jack Ryan series, which had already been announced for 2005, has been postponed several times, most recently to July 2007. Since Tom Clancy had to undergo a bypass operation in October 2006 , it was for a long time questionable whether there would be another book at all Number of himself will appear. In December 2010 the next novel from the so-called Jack Ryan universe was published. Dead or Alive is, like In the Eye of the Tiger , about Jack Ryan Jr., the son of Jack Ryan. From this point on, titles published were published with the help of changing co-authors . With all his might , Mark Greaney, as one of these co-authors, continued the Jack Ryan universe as an independent author at the end of 2014. In June 2015, the book entitled Under Fire , written by Grant Blackwood , was published. Others followed.

Four of his books were made into films successfully in financial terms, even if the contents sometimes differ significantly from the novel:

In 2014, the movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit , based on Clancy's main character, starring Chris Pine, was released . A television series entitled Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan has been available as a streaming offer on Amazon since 2018 . The main actor is John Krasinski .

In addition to his fictional works, Clancy also wrote several non-fiction books about the American armed forces .

In addition, books are also sold under his name that are only partially or not at all from his pen, but have a similar style. These include the series:

The books in the Splinter Cell series are based on the computer and console games of the same name (see below).

Naming rights

After the French publisher Ubisoft had already taken over Clancy's game company, Red Storm Entertainment , the publisher also acquired the naming rights to "Tom Clancy" in 2008. Accordingly, Ubisoft has unlimited permission to sell games, films and other products under the “Tom Clancy” brand. Industry insiders reckon that Ubisoft let the naming rights cost around 20 million euros.
