Michael Crichton Has Passed…
In the midst of all this election turmoil, I almost overlooked a significant death. Michael Crichton, author of Jurassic Park and creator of ER, passed away on Election Day. He was 66.
Crichton was my favorite author due to his well-researched books, which brought science fiction into our modern world. Timeline remains the most interesting work of fiction I have ever read; who else could have successfully combined quantum mechanics and 14th century French history into a thriller of a novel?
You will be missed, sir.
