OK, LOST FANS, THIS IS EERIE...

After a Lost scriptwriter mentioned in a Sept. 21 Chicago Tribune article that Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman would soon play a key role in the show, the novel jumped in ranking on Amazon.com from the 200,000 range to No. 67. Immediately following Policeman's cameo in the Oct. 5 episode (in which Desmond stuffed a copy into his bag), it landed at No. 42 — one of Hurley's numbers. Coincidence? We think not.
