In Memoriam: Michael Crichton

Michael Crichton died yesterday, November 4, 2008.  Crichton was the author of many books, including The Andromeda Strain and Jurassic Park.  He was also a movie and TV writer and director.   His movie credits included Westworld and Coma.  As a youngster, I saw movies like The Andromeda Strain, Westworld, and Coma.  They were pretty scary for their time.  Yul Brynner as the gunslinger in Westworld made an especially lasting impression.

Crichton was also creator and executive producer of TV’s ER.
