'Lost' book 'Bad Twin' sells well despite lacking show writers' details

UPI News Service, 06/21/2006 

"Bad Twin," the "Lost" tie-in book, penned by thriller author Laurence Shames, lacks some of the elements the "Lost" writers were hoping for.

"Bad Twin" was published by Hyperion Books last month, written by Shames under the pseudonym Gary Troup, in a cross-promotional campaign meant to play off the obsessive interest of fans of the ABC series "Lost," The Daily Variety reported Wednesday.

Insiders say the author of the book had his own vision and wound up including only a few of the elements that the "Lost" writers supplied him with.

"Lost" scribes had written Troup in as a character on the show, a passenger presumed dead in the plane crash that left a manuscript behind. The connection sent fans flocking to bookstores to search for clues to the show's mysteries and propelling the book to a number of bestseller lists.
