The LA Times Asks Me About the LOST Books

Last week someone from the LA Times asked to interview me about the Lost book club project I’ve been doing on this blog for the past few years.  The article is here, and she even included some of my theorizin’ about where the show might be headed in these last 2 episodes.

I’ll be coming up with a final theory after the next episode and have it up in time for the series finale. As much as I like trying to predict Lost, though, I really love it when I’m wrong if only so I’ll be more surprised by how things play out.

If you’re one of the many people suddenly showing up here today, welcome and thanks for coming by. My Lost reading is only a minor part of this site so I hope you’ll have a look around while you’re here.


  1. ok — now I almost think I need to start watching lost. (I am usually the last to arrive at the party.)

    congrats on the la times! pretty cool.

    • It’s a very worthwhile way to spend time. We started at the beginning of Season 2. Watched all of Season 1 in about a week.

      And thanks for the retweet! 🙂

  2. Angie & I can sit in the corner & compare late-comer notes. I *have* been tempted to watch, just because of your series here.

    Congrats on the pick-up. It is tre neato!

    • Thanks, Deb. Like I said, it’s worth the time. LOST is unusual in that the network allowed the LOST to set a fixed end date, thus allowing a full narrative arc. And it’s lots of fun.

  3. Just getting around to reading the LA Times article, a week late. Very cool, James.

    I lost a great deal of sleep in April watching all five seasons’ worth of Babylon 5 online. So I am going to try hard not to get sucked into Lost.

    • Thanks, Dave. It was a fun surprise for this side of my blog to be noticed. I haven’t tried Babylon 5, though I’ve heard nothing but good things. LOST is a pleasant addiction, though, if you ever do get sucked in.

  4. I have just discovered your Lost Book Club List and I am both absolutely amazed by it and completely in love with it. You put so much work into it, and it is fascinating and remarkably insightful. I just want to say thank you for sharing it on the web so I can divulge from the effort you put forth in creating it. Wow!
