Michael Crichton, RIP

A great author passed away today: Michael Crichton. Probably his most memorable book was Jurassic Park, because of the movie, but many of his other books (also turned into movies, with much less success) were even better. Congo. Sphere. Andromeda Strain. Timeline. The list goes on. Though one title the linked article mentions is actually incorrect. It's State of Fear, not State of Favor. May God's peace be with his family during this time. He will be missed by many.

I've enjoyed several of Crichton's books. It's too bad to see him go.

I saw this earlier today. I have fond JP memories as that was the first REAL book Jeff read voluntarily outside of a classroom. Of course, it was many years out of college and after the movie, but still!
