This is going to sound dismissive, so I'll premise it by saying that I like Tom Clancy books.

But he hasn't written anything new since the mid-90s.

After Red October and Red Storm Rising, everything was written using a formula.

The exception, I think, being Rainbow Six.

And after that point, with the Clancy name entering the video game world (classic but niche Microprose games not withstanding) he took a step back.

Just about everything with his name on it, including books in his main novel series, was ghost-written from his notes and formula and he just slapped his name on it to get his percentage of the take.

The man is significant in that he has a minor media empire with his name on it, but he stopped being a writer a long time ago. There are people almost old enough to vote who didn't live in a time when he actually wrote.

In the end they will lay their freedom at our feet and say to us, 'Make us your slaves, but feed us.'
