  • Author Michael Crichton has died

    Dang... He has done some decent sci-fi and fiction. Not a fan of all of his work, but still kinda sucks

      I enjoyed his writing he was sort of a modern day Jules Verne. Really liked Eaters of the Dead (which was made into a terrible movie).

        Wow...someone with the same opinion. Eaters of the Dead, Jurassic Park, Congo are some of my favorite books. Right up there with Jules Verne.....a sad day truly.

          Very sad indeed. Crichton was a very talented author. Brilliant mind for being able to combine elements of science fiction, reality and horror.

            This is...extremely saddening. I've read and reread his books numerous times.

            An author who will be missed.

              He was one of my faves too. I forgot the name of the book that dealt with some of the hype about global warming, but it was a fascinating read.
