Crichton a candidate for Jurassic Park

What books, zines or other pulp are you reading? What aren't you reading? What should everyone else read?

Can't say I read many of his books outside of the 2 about dinosaurs, but they were my favorites as a teen.

I'm not buying it. Obituaries are nothing but consensus science.

The man was an expert at perfectly smart thrils.
Andromeda Strain, Congo, Sphere, Eaters of the Dead....
Bow down to a master.

Agreed - the stories were fantastical but gripping. I absolutely loved "The Andromeda Strain" and "Sphere" as a teenager.

I did laugh at the "consensus science" bit. I never recognized Crichton's reactionary streak until "State of Fear" came out a few years back.
