Michael Crichton net worth: Michael Crichton was an American author who had a net worth of $175 million. That may seem like a surprisingly high net worth, but if you see the number of bestselling books that have Crichton's name on them, you may find yourself wondering why he wasn't worth even more money than that. His career as a published author began in 1966 with Odds On, a novel about a hotel robbery planned by a computer program. Crichton's pet themes of technology gone amok and humanity's attempt to deal with it were present even at this time. Three years later in 1969, his first novel to become a bestseller, The Andromeda Strain, was published. That novel, dealing with a killer virus from outer space, later became a movie, which established Crichton as a creative force in Hollywood. But it wasn't until the release of Jurassic Park that Crichton reached true blockbuster status. Crichton's career has been divided between books and film, directing and writing a deceptively influential science fiction movie WestWorld, which featured killer cowboy robots malfunctioning at a western-themed amusement park, with lethal results. In 2008, he died unexpectedly after an undisclosed-to-the-public battle with throat cancer. His novels and films continue to be popular, and will doubtlessly continue to be long after his death.
