Michael Crichton’s ‘Micro’ Coming in November

HarperCollins will posthumously publish Micro by Michael Crichton in November. Prior to his passing in 2008, Crichton (pictured, via) had written about one-third of the book.

According to USA Today, nonfiction writer Richard Preston finished remaining two-thirds of the manuscript. Preston consulted Crichton’s outline, reference materials, and notes to complete the novel.

Preston explained: “For me, it was an irresistible challenge to finish the novel, and I was driven by a desire to honor the work and imagination of one of our time’s most visionary and creative authors.” (via Publishers Weekly)
