Why one shouldn’t annoy novelists

Most people will know novelist Michael Crichton. His last book, State of Fear, was heavily critical of the environmental movements, so hence his appointment by Bush to an advisory role on climate change was criticised by many, including Michael Crowley who wrote for The New Republic.

By coincidence a Mick Crowley appears in Crichton’s latest book. He is a paedophile child rapist. Yes seriously.

Boy is that holding a grudge. One would think Crichton would not be so petty or at least slightly more subtle, I mean you could have him a a hack journalist or a petty thief, but a child rapist!!

On the positive side it might all lead to a good Southpark episode!
