OMG - I just heard the most terrible news. One of my favorite authors passed away yesterday... Michael Crichton. :(
I've read everything he wrote - the list is too long to mention in my distressed state, so I'll just throw out SPHERE, THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN, DISCLOSURE,and JURASSIC PARK for those who aren't sure who he is. Was. *sob*
RIP Michael. The world will miss you!
