The Hunt for Red October

by Clancy Tom

Condition: As New


His first book-you all know this. The book is price clipped, has the eight as opposed to six blurbs, with the Cussler blurb near the bottom, not the top, with silver ISBN on back, and the usual two pounds. BUT, it is in excellent condition.

Published in 1984, The Hunt for Red October follows a Soviet submarine captain who defies orders and charts a course for the United States. Unclear of his motives and fearing a nuclear launch, the protagonist Jack Ryan attempts to track the nearly untraceable vessel as it nears the east coast. The basis for a blockbuster hollywood film of the same title, The Hunt for the Red October catapulted Tom Clancy from insurance salesman to one of the most popular writers of his generation. After being rejected by several mainstream publishers, Clancy submitted the book to the Naval Institute Press and was reportedly surprised at it's acceptance. The publisher, which had never published a work of fiction before printed only 5000 copies in the first run, making the first printing rather scarce.  Read more: Identifying first editions of The Hunt for Red October
