Two New Michael Crichton Novels Found

Posted: April 7th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Two New Michael Crichton Novels FoundSubmit Comment
HarperCollins is getting ready to publish two new novels written by the late author Michael Crichton, who died of cancer last year at 66. He was known for such hits as "Jurassic Park" and "ER."

The action adventure "Pirate Latitudes" is set in Jamaica in 1665 and revolves around plans by a notorious pirate named Hunter and the governor of Jamaica to raid a Spanish galleon filled with treasure. The novel was written before Crichton's death and was discovered in his files by an assistant.

HarperCollins plans a first printing of 1 million copies, with the novel set to hit stores on November 24th.

The other book is a yet-to-be-titled technological thriller that was left unfinished by Crichton. It will be completed based on the writer's notes and released late next year. An author has not yet been hired to finish the work.

Creative Artists Agency is handling the film and TV rights of the books. Crichton's agent, which had represented the author, continues to broker deals for his estate.

Hollywood has long been interested in adapting Crichton's novels, with "The Andromeda Strain," "Congo," "Disclosure," "Rising Sun," "Sphere" and "Timeline," in addition to "Jurassic Park" and "The Lost World" all turned into pics, while "Airframe" and "Prey" have been optioned.

Pfft. Nothing like the 23 page manuscript they found by Beckett. 23 pages of nothing. Critics say, possibly his best work. That pirate book probably isn't even Chriton's, his assistant probably wrote it and just slipped it in with his sh*t. The dead can't defend themselves.

'The novel was written before Chrichton's death...." Hm, yes if it was really written by him, then I would surely expect that... (Sorry, but I couldn't help myself...)

I'd have to agree with Donald Kaufman, considering he's posting on this forum from beyond the grave. Imagine me and you.

Yeah... I wouldn't bet a kidney or anything that he had nothing to do with writing either of these 2 books. They're just feeding off his name.
