It's interesting to note that he showed a propensity for writing at a young age and pursued a career. Odds On, his debut piece of writing, was released in 1966. He used a few pseudonyms in the early years. The ability of Crichton to blend factual, technical information with fiction set his work apart from those of his contemporaries. Because of this, his novels had a realistic sense to them.
