I'm shocked, he wasn't that old, 66. It's sad, the world's lost a terrific writer.

Agreed. He was taken way too soon. The write up said that he had kept his illness quiet shocking everyone when he died.

This is not a good year to be famous and old...

I say this with no humour...

Whoa, that was a shocker. The world has lost a brilliant mind.

Default My God, why?

Michael Crichton,

I hope you can read this from heaven. Even though we never spoke, your work and talent have inspired me to become the person I am today. The fabulous worlds from your mind shown on screen are the reason I am in the FX business and your books are a mainstay of my literary endeavors. The world is weaker in your absence.

I am very upset about this and you are now the second influential figure I will never meet. The first being Stan Winston.

Rest in peace Sir, I wish I could have met you.

Take care,
Sean Burns
