Without Conan Doyle's The Lost World (1912), it's hard to imagine Crichton could have written his Jurassic Park and if it came down to a toss up between the two, my choice would be to keep the first and chuck the other to the raptors. (This works the other way round if we're talking about the movie versions, incidentally!)
"I can only pity the generation that gets its dinosaurs from Jurassic Park instead of the magic plateau in whose steamy jungle the Prof and his friends spent so much time on the run." -- Clive James.
