Michael Crichton, 66, dies of cancer

Well, this sucks.

I’ve only written about Michael Crichton, or his work, [a few times](http://cdevroe.com/?s=michael crichton) – but let me be the first to say that I am a huge fan of everything he had done professionally.  When Kyle linked me to this article I admit that I was immediately saddened by the news.

Michael Crichton was far and away, and for better or worse, my favorite author. I have my reasons. And I’m really quite sad that I will not be able to enjoy more of his work.
