Crichton died of cancer in 2008, leaving behind two manuscripts on his computer. One was a completed work about 17th century pirates called 'Pirate Latitudes' that was quickly published. The other was 'Micro', only half-finished and another author had to come in to finish the story based on 'Crichton's notes.' I put that in quotes because who knows how extensive those notes actually were and how many liberties co-author Richard Preston had to take to complete it.
