Author Michael Crichton dies.

It has been announced that best selling author, director and TV show creator Michael Crichton has died.

Besides his many popular books that frequently explored science and medicine, I find two facts about Crichton interesting.
  1. At 6' 9" in height, he certainly must be among the tallest authors around.

  2. Crichton was one of the few popular authors who successfully wrote in a variety of genres. During his career he wrote mysteries, science fiction, historical novels and books that explored contempory issues. A rare talent to have the ability to do that.
