The author of thrillers has died. Last year, I asked Brad Thor if his real last name was indeed Thor. Here’s how he replied:

The first question many people ask Thor regards his byline: Is he trying to channel the Nordic god of thunder through a nom de plume? “Thor really is my last name — it’s Swedish,” he says. “If I had picked a pen name, I would have started it with a ‘C,’ so my books would sit between ‘Clancy’ and ‘Cussler.’”
