Hong Kong, hiding from the Kommies!
This guy wrote classics like: The Terminal Man, Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park.

His later stuff is quite good as well: Timeline, State of Fear, Prey, Next.

Really really good reading. I cannot stress it enough.

Fucking cold.
His early work is good.
He became a massive whore after jurassic park though.
Fucking up his own plots to score endorsements on sequels he hadn't planned for or written yet.

Nobody ever shows "Westworld" any love when Chrichton gets brought up. Westworld owns your face. I think they're remaking it *sigh*

Fucking cold.
Not even Mozart has a clue.
Could you pls cite more. What sequel, what plot and what endorsement?
Sorry I didn't get back to this.
Ian Malcolm dies in the end of Jurassic Park.
He writes it as a faked death in the lost world and to me it screams of deus ex machina.
If he'd have meant it to be a fake death in Jurassic Park, he'd have bothered writing it. All it says is something to the effect of "The burial of Ian Malcolm wasn't even allowed".
Universal wanted a sequel to the movie and he started writing the books accordingly.
Really a brilliant author, but a filthy whore.
