Michael Crichton, one of my favorite sci-fi authors bid adieu to the world yesterday (Nov 4th) at Los Angeles. Known to have been battling with cancer for a long time, his battle with life finally has ended. He had just completed 66. I've been a great fan of his books like Congo, Jurassic Park, The Lost World and the State of Fear (though I didn't completely read this one).
His exemplary skills of portraying the bizzaire effects of scientific experiments is something that has keep me gaping everytime I read his book or see his movies. Michael, you will stay in my heart (and the hearts of many other readers and fans of yours) forever! May God bless your soul!
