Michael Crichton, author of more than two dozen novels, died on Tuesday from cancer. He was only 66. Another very sad loss. As famous for the movie adaptations of his books as for the books themselves, Crichton is a perfect example of how an author can really succeed. And he was nearly seven feet tall (six foot nine inches, I think). I know that’s not really relevant to his death, but it’s pretty cool.

Vale Michael.
