I was sad to hear the following news:
In Los Angeles, on Tuesday, November 4, 2008, Michael Crichton passed away at the age of 66 to cancer.
This is what the family said about one of my favorite authors,
"While the world knew him as a great storyteller that challenged our preconceived notions about the world around us – and entertained us all while doing so – his wife Sherri, daughter Taylor, family and friends knew Michael Crichton as a devoted husband, loving father and generous friend who inspired each of us to strive to see the wonders of our world through new eyes."Publishers are holding the release of a new book, but if it is anything like his previous books, I am sure it will be great.
