About this author

Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name. See this thread for more information.

Christopher Moore (born 1957 in Toledo, Ohio) is an American writer of absurdist fiction. He grew up in Mansfield, OH, and attended Ohio State University and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA.

Moore's novels typically involve conflicted everyman characters suddenly struggling through supernatural or extraordinary circumstances. Inheriting a humanism from his love of John Steinbeck and a sense of the absurd from Kurt Vonnegut, Moore is a best-selling author with major cult status.

Be safe, be kind, have fun….

Interviews

February 2009, Christopher Moore
"Why are we fascinated with vampires? Because they're scary, sexy, cool. All at once. That's a lot of emotion wrapped around one monster. I mean, zombies are scary, but no one wants to shag them." ...More
