Michael Crichton, the million-selling author who made scientific research terrifying and irresistible in such thrillers as Jurassic Park, Timeline and The Andromeda Strain, has died of cancer, his family said. Crichton died Tuesday in Los Angeles at age 66 after privately battling cancer.

"Through his books, Michael Crichton served as an inspiration to students of all ages, challenged scientists in many fields, and illuminated the mysteries of the world in a way we could all understand," his family said in a statement.
