Michael Crichton obituary | Books | The Guardian

In quick succession in the early s, Michael Crichton's novel Disclosure was No 1 on the US best-seller charts, the film Jurassic Park, based on another of his novels and on whose screenplay he worked uncredited, was America's top-grossing film, and the television series ER, which he created, was the best-rated programme on US television. This remarkable hat-trick emphasises the ability Crichton, who died yesterday, aged 66, possessed to catch the interests of the mass-market audience with fiction that otherwise might be consigned to genre ghettos. And catch it he did, selling more than m books worldwide, and seeing many of his works made into hit films. This was all the more surprising because his speciality, the "techno-thriller" strand of science fiction, was remarkably dystopian, generally dealing with the unexpected consequences of technology or misunderstood science gone out of control, and could usually be read as warnings about putting too much faith in progress. Crichton was unusual too in the way in which he moved from writing novels to directing films at a very early stage in his career.
