R.I.P. Writer Michael Crichton

Author Michael Crichton dies, 66

Michael Crichton, author of Jurassic Park, has died aged 66 after a “courageous and private battle against cancer”, his family has said.

And:

A Harvard Medical School graduate, Crichton became the toast of Hollywood when his 1971 novel The Andromeda Strain was turned into a film.

Andromeda Strain decades later remains one of the high points of SF in film. Some selected images:
