Experience Season Six of LOST as it happened-the way it was meant to be enjoyed. LOST Reality contains all 20 of Pearson Moore's Season Six essays, each of them written in the early morning hours following the episode's broadcast premiere. There's no better way to enjoy the journey.

This is a book for dedicated fans of the television series. In this volume you will find no time-tested theories, only the deep, on-the-fly analysis that made Pearson Moore's essays must-read events during the final season. In light of later revelations, most of Moore's insights could probably be labeled as 'wrong' or at best 'incomplete', but a constant refrain in Moore's essays is reader involvement. The point of the essays is not to reveal truth, but rather to stimulate thought.

Take as an example the idea of Faraday's Boulder, developed by Moore in three essays during the season. The original concept was that the Incident was fueled by the catastrophic opposition of nuclear and electromagnetic forces, creating separate but parallel channels in the flow of spacetime. We can laugh at Moore's idea, thinking it disproven by later episodes...or we can use this concept as a stepping stone to deeper understanding of the real meaning of the Sideways World. As Moore points out, the flash sideways scenes originated in a PARALLEL world, not in an 'afterlife' or 'purgatory'. The reality was appropriately called 'Sideways' because that's what it was. Contemplation of Faraday's Boulder, and Moore's other 'harebrained ideas', pays enormous dividends in understanding Season Six.

LOST Reality contains all-new essays prepared especially for this edition. A new introduction sets the tone, and the chapter on the Sideways Reality puts the final season into a dramatically new perspective. As promised, this book also contains Moore's long-awaited fourth essay on Christian Shephard, "The Good Shephard." A long essay on "Molasses Smuggling and the Intelligence Singularity" rounds out the volume with a look at Moore's LOST-inspired work and interests, including a discussion of the fascinating structural features of his science fiction epic, Deneb.

For the first time in a book by Pearson Moore, a fair number of the illustrations were created by Moore himself. His works include computer-generated images created for the original essays, and feature outstanding freehand pencil drawings generated only in the last two weeks of August 2014, days before publication. Fans have already commented on the surprising quality of the work. "I'm as shocked as anyone," Moore said. Indeed; he completed his first-ever pencil drawing on August 6, 2014. Sketches include freehand portraits of John Locke, Kate Austen, and Dr. Christian Shephard, as well as renderings of both Neandertal and Sapiens (human) skulls.
