R.I.P Michael Crichton

Michael Crichton, the author of the blockbuster science-fiction novels “Jurassic Park,” “The Andromeda Strain” and “State of Fear,” died yesterday after a hard-fought struggle with cancer. He was 66.

This link to the New York Times will take you to further links about Crichton and reviews of his work.

I read Jurassic Park when I was 11, well, I listened to the audio tape actually. I haven’t read much of his work since then, but I know that he is an influencial man in the publishing and media industry and he had a great talent with concocting fantastic stories out of thin air. The written world will sorely miss him.
