Missing Michael

The Guardian reports that two books by Michael Crichton "have been discovered on the writer's computer" and will be published by HarperCollins in the next 18 months. The first is titled Pirate Latitudes and is set in 17th-centurey Jamaica (man, is everyone on the pirate kick nowadays?). HC is looking for a co-writer to complete the second novel, a technological thriller, which they plan to publish next year. According to Crichton's agent, there are no plans to raid his computer for material for posthumous publication and no plans to make the Crichton name a franchise. Except for, um, just these two.
