    Wonderful author. He will be missed.

    Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Twister, Congo...some of my favorite movies came from this guy's works.

    I liked a number of his novels... Jurassic Park is a given.. but also The Andromeda Strain, The Terminal Man, Eaters of the Dead (The 13th Warrior), and Rising Sun

    RIP
