            I am a C. S. Lewis fanatic. I’ve read all his works, been to his home in England, and even written a book about one of his stories. For an expert, it can be humbling when an amateur points out something you’ve missed. The book was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first of Lewis’s classic Chronicles of Narnia. The hidden lesson was pointed out by my father-in-law who saw it the first time he read the book. That lesson still speaks to us today.

Today, we start a new feature here on Republibot that we are very proud of: Science Fiction University. For the first quarter (and maybe beyond), C.S. Lewis expert and all-around-pop-culture maven, Dr. Charlie Starr will be sharing scholarly, insightful and fun thoughts on such topics as LOST, King Kong and Battlestar Galactica. We get started with a three part series on C.S. Lewis' Space Trilogy. Without further ado, let's look at Out of the Silent Planet

Lost and C. S. Lewis: Connections on the Fringe

After reading the following essay, I can imagine Charlie sitting up in bed and yelling "Eureka!", and then realizing that he was yelling the title to the wrong TV show, yelling "Lost and Fringe!  And Jack Lewis!"

We have all the elements to a great story here- a long forgotten text, a mysterious TV show and a college professor trying to find THE TRUTH.  Too bad we have no budget to hire Tom Hanks.

In this case, though, we do have Dr. Starr's latest Lost essay.  Enjoy!
