Microtechnology versus Nature techno-thriller begun by Michael Crichton...and completed by non-fiction author Richard Preston.
Dr. John Michael Crichton (1942-2008) was an author, screenwriter, and director and producer who worked in every visual media and made techno-thrillers extremely popular.
Micro is a techno-thriller novel by Michael Crichton, the seventeenth under his own name and second to be published after his death in 2011. Upon his death in 2008, an untitled, unfinished manuscript was found on his computer, which would become Micro. Publisher HarperCollins chose science writer Richard Preston to complete the novel.
