Michael Crichton, RIP.

One of my favourite authors, Michael Crichton, has passed away aged just 66 from cancer. He had kept his illness private between him and his family.

Crichton was the author of such novels as Jurassic Park, Eaters Of The Dead, The Great Train Robbery, Westworld, The Andromeda Strain, Sphere, Prey, and many more. He was also the creator and first writer of the award winning ER TV series. In recent times he courted controversy with his novel State Of Fear and with it’s alternate view of global warming.

He will be missed.

Interestingly, it seems he had at least one more novel in the pipeline that has been postponed, so perhaps we will see another work from him posthumously.
