    So I am looking for some novels similar in style, feel and mythology to LOST. I know A Song of Ice and Fire, and I am watching Game of Thrones.

    I added Walking Dead to the mix in the sense that, it and LOST, both have a wide array of characters, all of them developed, and action happens in different places with different groups. Add to that fantasy / supernatural / sci-fi mystery and you get what I am looking for.

    Some people suggested Simmons' Hyperion

    Do you guys have any other suggestions for novels like Lost or the TV Show Walking Dead (not necessarily a Zombie novel, preferably not as well)

    Thanks

    The Walking Dead has some books and graphic novels if you want to stick with the characters and world you know.

    If you like Game of Thrones, you should check out Prince of Thorns.

    Hmm... not exactly sure what you're looking for, but I would suggest looking into the books of Neal Stephenson. Well, at least the ones from Snowcrash onward. Possibly Cryptonomicon would be a good starting point. (BTW, it has a few gay characters, including a fictionalized Alan Turing.)

    Also maybe William Gibson.
