I loved Michael Crichton growing up, and I never knew he wrote under a pen name, so count me super excited. I especially love pulp covers. :D

Big Crichton fan as a teen. Planned on giving these a whirl either way, but please save my pocket book!

Cool. I've read the 2 already put out by Hard Case Crime, Grave Descend and Zero Cool, a couple years ago. They were fun reads.

Check out the cover to Zero Cool. The cover of the book the woman on the beach is reading is the cover to Grave Descend.

Anyway, I'm in.
