RIP, Michael Crichton, died of cancer at age 66, :-(.

I admit it, my favorite book of his was Jurassic Park, I couldn't put that one down, long before the movie. But he made other contributions to film, way back to the 70s.

Critic John Leonard, 69

I used to see him on CBS Sunday Morning, and then I'd be reading a review of some book in Harper's magazine and I'd recognize his style without even looking at the byline.

The passing of Michael Crichton seemed so unexpected - and that was the same for some of my friends. I guess cause he kept his disease to himself or maybe it is just we all thought he was so timeless?

I will miss him. He was a truth technomage of an author.

A great life he had!

Btw, what did they call "Sci-fi" before he supposedly coined that in the 1950s? Or did he just come up with that shorthand?

Science Fiction, I guess. He just coined the short form.

It would have been a trip to tour his house.
