Buy a Piece of Tom Clancy

Thriller writer Tom Clancy passed in 2013, but he’ll always be an indelible part of the top secret D.C. landscape. He knew his subject inside out, and if authenticity is what thrills you, no one did it better.

Now his estate is going up at auction and you can bid to own a piece of Clancy, either in person or online. Or, if you’re a fan like me, you can take a virtual nose around and pretend you’re sipping coffee and discussing fictional spies with a literary master.

WASHINGTON — An eclectic batch of items from American novelist Tom Clancy is being sold by an Alexandria, Virginia, auction house.

Clancy, who was a Maryland native, died in 2013 at age 66, and much of the on-sale belongings come from his 80-acre estate on the Chesapeake Bay in Southern Maryland.

The auction takes place Jan. 31, but bidding is already underway online. Potential buyers can also see the items in person at the gallery in Old Town Alexandria.

“There is his luxury modern furniture from his estate over in Calvert County. It’s comprised of modern furniture with unusual textures and skins: snakeskin, crocodile, stingray,” Elizabeth Wainstein, owner of The Potomack Company auction house, told WTOP.
