    One of my favorite authors, Tom Clancy, has died. He was age 66.
    October 2013

    A few words from CNN.
    Author Tom Clancy, whose novel, "The Hunt for Red October" propelled him to fame, fortune and status as a favorite storyteller of the American military, has died, according to sources with his publisher and family. He was 66.

    The cause of death wasn't immediately available.

    A Baltimore-born former insurance agent, Clancy was known for writing meticulous thrillers focusing on political intrigue and military tactics and technology. He published 28 books -- including a new novel yet to be released.

    Several were made into Hollywood blockbusters, including "The Hunt for Red October," "Patriot Games," and "The Sum of All Fears."

    Seventeen of his novels appeared on the New York Times best-sellers list, according to his website. Many of them reached the No. 1 spot.

    His writings also provided the inspiration for the "Rainbow Six," "Ghost Recon" and "Splinter Cell," video game series. Story Continues

    It is with regret that we announce that Eileen Coly peacefully passed away in Manhattan at the age of 97 on November 18th, 2013. She served as President of the Parapsychology Foundation from 1970 until her retirement in 2011. She continued to share the founder, her mother Eileen J. Garrett’s vision for the Foundation which is to formulate a multi-disciplinary international approach to the study of psychic phenomena with an emphasis on scientific methodology and education.



    Born and educated in England, traveling extensively with her mother the famed psychic and author, they were separated during World War II, during which she remained in England, surviving the London Blitz. Settling in the United States in l947 she worked at Creative Age Press and “Tomorrow” Magazine before joining the Parapsychology Foundation in l966. She is the recipient of the 2001 Parapsychological Association’s Outstanding Career Award “for her generous support and dedication to the science of parapsychology.”



    With her French born husband, Robert R. Coly, now deceased she raised two children, Lisette and Robert Louis Coly. She is survived by her daughter, Lisette, who continues to serve as current President of the Parapsychology Foundation in Manhattan and Greenport as well as her son-in-law George E. Damalas and three grandchildren: George Robert Damalas, Anastasia Eileen Damalas and Robert Alan Coly. She has resided in Greenport since l990.

    RIP Nelson Mandela

    Former South African President Nelson Mandela died Thursday December 5, 2013 at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection.

    The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism.

    We have had a rough few months here with people from our field leaving this realm and moving on to the Great Beyond...
