I'd say "Suck it, Newsbot," but I'm in shock right now.

Wow. :(

I read a ton of his stuff in my late teens/early 20's. It was after Jurassic Park, but before all his books became obligatory movies. Rising Sun and Disclosure are real page turners.

I also loved The Great Train Robbery. A wonderfully underrated film with Connery and Donald Sutherland directed by Crichton.

Its kind of fitting E.R. will be going off the air

He will be missed.

Too bad he didn't get eaten alive by dinosaurs. Now he'll have to settle for getting eaten dead by dinosaurs.
Shit. I can't think of a good signature.

Airframe was also kinda neat. I've never been fully impressed by the movies though, the first Jurassic Park being the best of the ones I've seen.
