HarperCollins will publish two new books by Michael Crichton, the author’s final projects before he passed away last November.
The author of the classic novels Jurassic Park and The Andromeda Strain was working on two books, according to the NY Times. The first will be released in November, entitled “Pirate Latitudes.” In addition, the company also plans to complete Crichton’s final novel in fall 2010 with the help of a co-author.
Harper publisher Jonathan Burnham discussed the pirate book: “It’s eminently and deeply and thoroughly researched…It’s packed through with great detail about navigation and how pirates operated, and links between the New World and the Caribbean and Spain.’”
