Michael Crichton Dies

November 5th, 2008

On the heels of my previous buoyant blog post came the sad news that Michael Crichton has died, at a mere 66 years of age. He was one of my influences; he pioneered the acceptability of science-fiction concepts in mainstream publishing and launched many other visionary projects. Very sad.

God’s speed, Michael.

    Arg, was hoping no-one else would blog this till I got home at 10ish and that I could be the first 😛
    So sad, too young – he was one of my favourite writers.
    RIP

    Yeah, sorry — beat you to it Fergal. Not the kind of news I’m happy to get to first though, alas. 🙁
