Hello

Marshall Moore

Thanks for stopping by. If you’re here, it probably means you want to know more about the author of Bitter Orange, The Infernal Republic, The Concrete Sky, and several other books. If so, you’ve come to the right place. However, if you’re looking for a financial recruiting firm based in the UK or for the author of the novel Tantalus Zero, I am not related to them in any way, but I do have my entertaining moments.

The Infernal Republic

Comprising stories published between 2003 and 2009, as well as several unique to this book, The Infernal Republic is Moore at his best: surreal, hilarious, wise, brutal, and sometimes just plain wrong.

Black Shapes in a Darkened Room

Black Shapes in a Darkened Room is a collection of witty, visceral, and darkly imaginative short fiction from the author of the novel The Concrete Sky. Revenge and eroticism, humor and despair, the supernatural and the everyday… Marshall Moore draws new contour lines and makes new connections in this nighttime map of the human soul.
