With one 20¢ brown-and-red "Nation of Readers" stamp affixed. FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. A pioneer of the techno-thriller, insurance broker TOM CLANCY (1947-2013) combined his lifelong interests in the military and technology in his first novel, The Hunt For Red October (1984). The book, which became an instant best-seller, introduced Ryan, who became a government operative in later novels, including Patriot Games (1997) and Clear and Present Danger (1989). All three books were made into films. He also created the media franchise Rainbow Six and contributed to the Splinter Cell video game series. The novels of action/adventure writer CLIVE CUSSLER, born in 1931, feature underwater explorer Dirk Pitt, who has saved the world from disaster in such yarns as Raise the Titanic, Inca Gold, Sahara and Atlantis Found. The agency for which Pitt works, the National Underwater & Marine Agency (NUMA), really exists. It was formed by Cussler in 1978 as a non-profit organization to explore shipwrecks and has discovered over 60 shipwrecks, including the Carpathia, which tried to rescue the Titanic, and the U-20, which sank the Lusitania. Cussler himself makes brief appearances in the novels and is usually pictured on the back cover with one of the classic automobiles from the Cussler/Pitt collection. His novels Raise the Titanic and Sahara were adapted for the silver screen. ROBERT LUDLUM (1927-2001) wrote 25 spy thriller novels, which were often inspired by conspiracy theories and pitted an individual or small group against powerful and influential enemies. Among Ludlum's most well-known books are those of the Bourne trilogy - The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum - which were adapted into acclaimed films starring Matt Damon. His other best-sellers include The Scarlatti Inheritance; The Osterman Weekend, adapted for film in 1983; and The Matarese Circle (1979). Lightly toned and soiled. Postmarks touch Clancy and Ludlum's signatures, which are legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
