I always looked forward to his next new book. Sometimes they didn’t meet my expectations, but I never stopped looking for the next book. He was 66. Some of my favorites were Jurassic Park, Airframe, Rising Sun and State of Fear, Travels, Timeline.
I liked that his books also had bibliographies if one wanted to read more on the subject. For screen writing, I also enjoyed Andromeda Strain and The Great Train Robbery, but first encountered those as movies.
