Michael Crichton , one of my all time favorite authors, passed away November 5th in Los Angeles.  Crichton's death was a result of cancer.  He was best known for his science fiction and techno-thriller novels.  A list of books he wrote can be found below:

Outside of writing, Crichton was also a producer.  He created ER, an Emmy/Award winning popular medical drama TV series that still airs on NBC today.
