A great Science Fiction author has passed away
I don’t know where I’ve been for the last few days but tonight I received the upsetting news that my favourite Science Fiction author, Michael Crichton has passed away. As reported on Deems’ weblog, Michael Crichton died on Tuesday the 4th of November 2008, aged 66.
According to the official Michael Crichton website he died suddenly after a private battle with cancer. A good synopsis of his career and the effect that his work has had on the entertainment industry can be found on The New York Times website.
From the moment I read Jurassic Park as a teenager, I knew that I would read every story the man ever wrote. He will be missed.
