A literary icon of our generation has passed away. The great writer Michael Crichton ended his battle with cancer at the age of 66 on November 4.

Crichton is best known for his masterpiece, Jurassic Park. As a bit of a dinophile, this became one of my favorite books. Over the years, I read many other Crichton books – Congo, Sphere, Airframe, Timeline, Prey, and Next among them. Crichton also wrote Twister and created the television show ER. I await the final Crichton novel, now scheduled for release on May 4, 2009.

Thank you for everything, Michael, and enjoy your eternal reward. You deserve it.
