Gregg Nations, keeper of 'Lost' secrets

The Sunday New York Times features a story about Texas native Gregg Nations, who as script co-ordinator is the man charged with writing what is known as "the Bible" on the set of Lost.

Nations functions as the show's own official Lostpedia, keeping track of continuity and the myriad details of Lost's many interlocking plotlines and the stories of its nearly 100 characters. Or, as executive producer Carlton Cuse puts it, the "timelines, charts, dossiers" by which true Lost obsessives live and die.

The NYT story is a fun read for devoted fans of the show, and it reveals no Lost Season 5 spoilers, so enjoy.
