Michael Crichton, RIP

by Jeff Abbott on November 6, 2008

Michael Crichton, creator of The Andromeda Strain, ER, Westworld, and Jurassic Park, has died. Sarah Weinman unearths a great interview with Crichton and his editor, Robert Gottlieb, and talks about the process of editing his breakout novel The Andromeda Strain. I remember reading The Andromeda Strain as a kid and thinking how different was from most novels–this interview helps explain why.
My condolences to his family. I was a fan, he was a terrific entertainer.
