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"), and the not popular music blog, Much Preferred Customers.


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

"A wickedly clever amalgam of science fiction, horror, and contemporary music that makes one reconsider whether Ziggy Stardust's arrival here on Earth might not, in fact, be such a good thing... I could have read Your Favorite Band Cannot Save You in one sitting, but I stretched it over two nights because I couldn't bear for it to end... Buy this book." --Elizabeth Hand in Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine

"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

"A lean, quick read with no fat. The clever, exciting story mixes weird fiction with an engaging and mysterious plot." --Library Journal

"My fave [book] of the new year... wherein a real life, superbly malevolent, female Ziggy Stardust hits the road with her band and wreaks havoc. Hilarious & eerie as hell." --Elizabeth Hand

"Moore writes with a playful jauntiness that buoys the growing darkness rather than undercutting it. His details about a certain subset of music nerds give the story some great texture... the ride is a fun one and the soundtrack is killer." --Locus
