Tom Clancy

Today, for the first time in Bookworm's Anonymous history, we will be discussing an author instead of the usual novel or book related post.

When you look at the New York Times Bestseller list, usually there are authors such as Stephen King, John Grisham, or Tom Clancy. The most popular authors always end up on the bestseller list because of their name. But Mr. Clancy takes it to a new level.

Nowadays when you see a new Tom Clancy novel out, it's not written by him. In fact most of them are written by his son. But to make them automatic bestsellers, Tom Clancy places his name on the cover.

So if you happen to be a Clancy fan and you want to read his newer works, just make sure to check the whole cover before you read it, chances are it isn't actually Tom Clancy.

NOTE: I am not writing this to ruin the Clancy family reputation. Both father and son are great authors and both deserve the status they have. I wrote this only to notify my fans that you need to check who is the actual author is.
