Biography

Michael Crichtons oeuvre is so vivid and varied that it hard to believe everything sprang from the mind of a single writer. Theres the dino-movie franchise and merchandising behemoth Jurassic Park; the long-running, top-rated TV series ER, which Crichton created; and sci-fi tales so cinematic a few were filmed more than once. Hes even had a dinosaur named after him. Ironically, for someone who is credited with selling over 150 million books, Crichton initially avoided writing because he didnt think he would make a living at it. So he turned to medical school instead, graduating with an M.D. from Harvard in 1969. The budding doctor had already written one award-winning novel pseudonymically (1968s A Case of Need) to help pay the bills through school; but when The Andromeda Strain came out in the same year of his med school graduation, Crichtons new career path became obvious. The Andromeda Strain brilliantly and convincingly sets out an American scientific crisis in the form of a deadly epidemic. Its tone — both critical of and sympathetic toward the scientific community — set a precedent for Crichton works to come. A 1970 nonfiction work, Five Patients offers the same tone in a very different form, that being an inside look at a hospital. Crichtons works were inspired by a remarkably curious mind. His plots often explored scientific issues — but not always. Some of his most compelling thrillers were set against the backdrop of global trade relations (Rising Sun), corporate treachery (Disclosure) and good old-fashioned Victorian-era theft (The Great Train Robbery). The author never shied away from challenging topics, but its obvious from his phenomenal sales that he never waxed pedantic. Writing about Prey, Crichtons cautionary tale of nanotech gone awry, The New York Times Book Review put it this way: Youre entertained on one level and you learn something on another. On the page, Crichtons storytelling was eerily nonfictional in style. His journalistic, almost professorial, and usually third-person narration lent an air of credibility to his often disturbing tales — in The Andromeda Strain, he went so far as to provide a fake bibliography. Along the way, he revelled in flouting basic, often subconscious assumptions: Dinosaurs are long-gone; women are workplace victims, not predators; computers are, by and large, predictable machines. The dazzling diversity of Crichtons interests and talents became ever more evident as the years progressed. In addition to penning bestselling novels, he wrote screenplays and a travel memoir, directed several movies, created Academy Award-winning movie production software, and testified before Congress about the science of global warming — this last as a result of his controversial 2004 eco-thriller State of Fear, a novel that reflected Crichtons own skepticism about the true nature of climate change. His views on the subject were severely criticized by leading environmentalists. On November 4, 2008, Michael Crichton died, following a long battle against cancer. Beloved by millions of readers, his techno-thrillers and science-inflected cautionary tales remain perennial bestsellers and have spawned a literary genre all its own.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our 2005 interview with Crichton: Im very interested in 20th-century American art. I have always been interested in movies and television as well as books. I see all these as media for storytelling, and I dont discriminate among them. At some periods of my life I preferred to work on movies, and at others I preferred books. In the early 1990s, interviewers began calling me ‘the father of the techno-thriller. Nobody ever had before. Finally I began asking the interviewers, ‘Why do you call me that? They said, ‘Because Tom Clancy says you are the father of the techno-thriller. So I called Tom up and said, ‘Listen, thank you, but Im not the father of the techno-thriller. He said, ‘Yes you are. I said, ‘No, Im not, before me there were thrillers like Failsafe and Seven Days in May and The Manchurian Candidate that were techno-thrillers. He said, ‘No, those are all political. Youre the father of the techno-thriller. And there it ended. My favorite recreation is to hike in the wilderness. I am fond of Hawaii. I used to scuba dive a lot, but havent lately. For a time I liked to photograph sharks but like anything else, the thrill wears off. Earlier in my life I took serious risks, but I stopped when I became a parent. I taught myself to cook by following Indian and Szechuan recipes. They each have about 20 ingredients. I used to grind my own spices, I was really into it. Now I dont have much time to cook anymore. When I do, I cook Italian food. I read almost exclusively nonfiction. Most times I am researching some topic, which may or may not lead to a book. So my reading is pretty focused, although the focus can shift quickly. I have always been interested in whatever is missing or excluded from conventional thought. As a result I am drawn to writers who are out of fashion, bypassed, irritating, difficult, or excessive. I also like the disreputable works of famous writers. Thus I end up reading and liking Paul Feyerabend (Against Method), G. K. Chesterton (Orthodoxy, Whats Wrong with the World), John Stuart Mill, Hemingway (Garden of Eden), Nietzsche, Machiavelli, Alain Finkielkraut (Defeat of the Mind), Anton Ehrenzweig (Hidden Order of Art), Arthur Koestler (Midwife Toad, Beyond Reductionism), Ian McHarg (Design with Nature), Marguerite Duras, Jung, late James M. Cain (Serenade), Paul Campos. Because I get up so early to work, I tend to go to bed early, around 10 or 11. So I dont go out much. I suppose I am borderline reclusive. I dont care.

A few words about book author

Long before he wrote Jurassic Park, before he scripted blockbuster movies like Twister, before he created the groundbreaking TV series ER, Michael Crichton was an honors student at Harvard Medical School - and writing paperback suspense novels on the side, under the top-secret pen name John Lange. Lange wrote eight books between 1966 and 1972...and then vanished.

Until, 40 years after John Lange was born, Michael Crichton chose Hard Case Crime to bring him back, personally re-editing two Lange books, even writing new chapters for one of them. Now Hard Case Crime is proud to bring all of John Langes work back into print for the first time in decades - and the first time ever under Michael Crichtons real name.
