Word just came out that Michael Crichton's technothriller novel, Micro, will be published November 22, 2011. According to an Associated Press story, Micro, which Crichton had written a third of before he died, has been completed by science writer Richard Preston. The novel will be "a thriller about a biotech company in Hawaii and the graduate students who end up stranded and endangered in a rain forest. Preston, known for his best-selling nonfiction work about the Ebola virus, 'The Hot Zone,' used Crichton’s outline, reference materials and notes to finish the book."
“Michael was writing at the top of his game, with a grand sense of adventure, into an eerie world that seems almost beyond imagining,” Preston said. “For me, it was an irresistible challenge to finish the novel, and I was driven by a desire to honor the work and imagination of one of our time’s most visionary and creative authors.”
