      Wow, this is a shame. I always found his books so engaging and just finished reading Next. I will miss new stories from him.

              Sad, really sad. I loved Prey, that was a really good one, and of course, Jurassic Park.

                He will be missed, and have to include one of his first movies, and one of my favorites, "Westworld".

                  Oh come on!! I was just getting really into his work too! Finished Jurassic Park last week, almost done with The Lost World right now, Prey was amazing, as was Timeline. He was a brilliant writer and the world is going to miss him.

                    I remember accidently picking up Jurassic Park from a Book of the Month club by accident (I had meant to fill in another dot in the catalog) and ended up reading it anyways.

                    And I was hooked.

                    He will be missed.

                    Peace,

                        He was the first author that I had all of his books.
