He lives in an inaccessible island fortress in the Pacific. You can e-mail him at [email protected]. Visit the official Christopher Moore website at

Christopher Moore


“Moore is endlessly inventive…. This cetacean picaresque is no fluke—it is a sure winner.”—
Publishers Weekly
(starred review)


“An instant classic…. Terrific, funny, and poignant.”

—Rocky Mountain News

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove

“Reads like author Christopher Moore laughed his head off while writing it, quite possibly taking hits of nitrous oxide between sentences.”

—Miami Herald

Island of the Sequined Love Nun

“Humor that seamlessly blends lunacy with larceny…habit-forming zaniness…. The careers of the writers with even a quarter as much wit and joie de vivre as Moore are always worth following.”

—USA Today

Bloodsucking Fiends

“Goofy grotesqueries…wonderful…delicious…bloody funny…like a hip and youthful ‘Abbott and Costello Meet the Lugosis.’”

—San Francisco Chronicle

Coyote Blue

“Brilliant…. Moore’s raucous, lewd, hip novel is part love story and part spiritual search.”
—Santa Barbara Independent

Practical Demonkeeping

“Christopher Moore is a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word.”

—Carl Hiaasen
