Matt Moore: Author of Horror and Dark Science Fiction


“Subtle power, intelligence, and humanity are the hallmarks of Moore’s work. These stories are apt to stick in your mind like quills. They did in mine.”
—Nick Cutter, author of Little Heaven, The Acolyte, and The Troop

It’s Not The End and Other Lies is the taut, muscular debut of an original and gifted voice. Matt Moore is a gardener of nightmares, artlessly turning over the dark soil in which the horrors that entangle ordinary people in their killing grasp bloom. If you read one new writer this year, read this one. You’ll thank me later.”
—Michael Rowe, Shirley Jackson Award-nominated author of Wild Fell and Enter, Night
