Yeah i used to love Clancy books but t was more that i loved military themed anything, books, video games, movies. the books lost appeal to me, especially now where he doesnt even write his own novels and just slaps his name on it.

As to complaining about justin beiber, rebecca black, etc, i say people should shut up. The only reason they are taken seriously is because of complaints, think "Frday" would've got a hundred million views if every blog in the world didnt comlain? No, people would see it, go "well that sucked" then move the hell on.

I feel like going to a neo-nazi forum to troll the shit out of it.

Also, what does one have to do to have their name slapped on books written by others?

I'd say that in that case, the trolling is mostly just redundant, not useful...kinda like bitching about stuff teenage girls like on the internetz.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Clancy has a big name from all his fame. So, it sells books. Little guys starting out, dont have the press or fame. So they write a book, tom clancy has the title be something like:

(really small print) from
TOM CLANCY (huge print)
Title
(all in small print)written by:author

Just the fact she knew all these different varients (my dad was lost for most of this conversation) was pretty impressive. I may be turning 18 this month, but I admit I checked for a ring. Which was MIA. Not that I made any investment there, but the gun love gave me some older woman fever.
I think you just need to move to the South. Down here, it's much easier to find women who shoot. On any given Saturday, my range has lots of them. The problems (for me) are that they're almost always with men (their husbands, boyfriends, or fathers), and that they tend to be trashy and religious (totally not my type).

EDIT: Also, you don't need to go for the older women down here, either. A lot of the girls I've seen at my range are closer to your age and mine (late teens to mid-20s).

The word you're looking for here is "brand name." You know, like how Samuel Colt doesn't design modern Colts due the the minor inconvenience of having been dead for a hundred and forty nine years.

The only problem with this comparison is that Tom Clancy isn't dead. And the guns that have borne Samuel Colt's name since his death haven't been nearly as shitty as the novels that have been marketed under Tom Clancy's name.
