Michael Crichton wrote the novels that inspired the movies Jurassic Park and Hideaway. He writes strictly sci-fi (even his attempts at drama such as Disclosure and A Case of Need are covered in science fiction). He comes from a strong scientific background (medical school, etc.).
I'm a huge Crichton fan and that is why there are descriptions with most of these novels. I haven't read some of the other books that goldblum.com features.
