Hello Again!

Hello Again!

I’m so sorry I was away for so long. But I have a little treat that you may enjoy.

The latest edition to my Michael Crichton archives is an April 1972 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. On p. 138 is an article by Betsy L. Freund titled “Is Michael Crichton Superman?” Freund interviewed Crichton for the article. A couple of highlights:
“Crichton says The Terminal Man was written as a direct result of the reviews and letters he received after the publication of The Andromeda Strain.”
“His next book, Leading Women, is a series of interviews with 13 Hollywood actresses, none of whom he identifies. ‘It will probably be very weird.’”
I’ve been researching Michael Crichton for decades and this is the first I’ve heard of this nonfiction former work-in-progress. Crichton has mentioned other unrealized projects in his writings and interviews. I’ll work on compiling a list.

LEADING sounds intriguing. reminiscent of the sort of books that Irving Wallace wrote.

Is there a full version of Freund's article on the internet for us to read?
