Although he sold insurance before writing his first
best-seller and has never worked as a technical writer as
far as I know, my vote would go to Tom Clancy. His gift for
explaining technology is truly amazing, especially in his
early novels before his contracts apparently specified that
he be paid by the pound for final manuscript drafts. ;)

IMHO, _The Hunt for Red October_ contains some of the most
brilliant technical prose I've ever read.
