About the Author

SCOTTO MOORE is a Seattle playwright, whose works include the black comedy H.P. Lovecraft: Stand-up Comedian!, the sci-fi adventures Duel of the Linguist Mages and interlace [falling star], the gamer-centric romantic comedy Balconies, and the a cappella sci-fi musical, Silhouette. He is the creator of The Coffee Table, a comedic web series about a couple that discovers their new coffee table is an ancient alien artifact that sends their house shooting through the void. He is also behind the popular Lovecraft-themed meme generator, Things That Cannot Save You ("a catalog of your doom"), which spawned his novella, Your Favorite Band Cannot Save You. Moore's debut novel, Battle of the Linguist Mages, was met with widespread critical acclaim, with the New York Times calling it "...an audacious, genre-bending whirlwind."


"Throughout this sprawling, ambitious romp, Moore draws from numerous perspectives and gleefully embraces the inherent absurdity of both setting and premise... Readers are in for a rollicking trip through the fun house." --Publishers Weekly

Praise for Battle of the Linguist Mages

"By the halfway point, it had blown my mind twice and accumulated such cavalcades of incident that I couldn't fathom where it had left to go -- but it found places, and it went there." --The New York Times

"It reads like Snow Crash had a dance-off with Gideon the Ninth, in a world where language isn't a virus from outer space, it's a goddamn alien invasion." --Charles Stross

"A frenetic romp... a whole lot of fun... Glitter-bombed popcorn fiction at its finest." --Kirkus STARRED REVIEW

"A roller coaster of weird in this wildly entertaining gonzo adventure... Readers will love it as much for the outlandish ideas as for the narrative complexity and sense of fun." --Publishers Weekly

Praise for Your Favorite Band Cannot Save You

"Scotto Moore understands a key truth about Ziggy Stardust: Rock and roll messiahs are really fucking scary." --Kieron Gillen

"Absolutely stunning. A fast-paced, psychedelic blur of music, tech, and things way beyond either. I picked it up, and it simply would not let me go until the final page was read." --Ramez Naam

"The ride is a fun one and the soundtrack is killer." --Locus
