-J.J. Abrams is the "​creator"​ of //​S.//​. ​ J.J. Abrams came up with the concept for S. when he discovered a book on a bench outside LAX in which someone had left a note for the person who'd find it. All of the marginalia and loose material in S. was inspired by Abrams'​ reflections on the ways in which people ​can connect through books, ​more specifically ​a singular book in particular. J.J. Abrams approached Dorst by asking him what kind of story he'd want to create using a story within the margins of a book as a structural conceit. They then spent the better part of a year discussing the characters, motivations,​ story arcs, and other elements, while Dorst did bulk of the actual ​writing((http://​swiki.zachwhalen.net/​real_world/​doug_dorst)). Abrams'​ name goes first in the bibliographic entry for the book.+J.J. Abrams is the "​creator"​ of //​S.//​. ​ J.J.
