Michael Chrichton

Andromeda Strain and Terminal man were my introduction to a class of science fiction called future history. And when I learned that Michael Chrichton was in his early twenties when he wrote these books, I was simply blown away. This morning, I learned that he passed away at the young age of 66.

Farewell my friend. The world lost not only a great story teller, but a big visionary and a source of inspiration.
