Michael Crichton, dead at 66
Michael Crichton dies of cancer
Crichton died Tuesday in Los Angeles at age 66 after privately battling cancer.
John Wells, executive producer of "ER" called the author "an extraordinary man. Brilliant, funny, erudite, gracious, exceptionally inquisitive and always thoughtful.
"No lunch with Michael lasted less than three hours and no subject was too prosaic or obscure to attract his interest. Sexual politics, medical and scientific ethics, anthropology, archaeology, economics, astronomy, astrology, quantum physics, and molecular biology were all regular topics of conversation."
Damn. We've lost a great mind and an amazing talent.
