Discover Writers Like Chris Moore

A guide by Laura Z (Chicago, IL)

So you've burned through all of Christopher Moore's books, laughing all the way...now what? Where do you turn to for your fix of weird, funny fiction that can keep you laughing as much as Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal did? Who will fill the gaps while Moore works on his next book?

Well, you can start with Chris Genoa's FOOP! and Lick Your Neighbor. Christopher Moore himself praised Foop! and called it "A surreal pie in the face." He also said that Lick Your Neighbor was "Just too F***king weird," which makes sense since Genoa is like a more surreal version of Moore--sort of like the illegitimate son of Salvador Dali, Douglas Adams, and Chris Moore.

Then head on over to Robert Rankin and start with The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse (GollanczF.) and Sex and Drugs and Sausage Rolls. Rankin is as silly as they come and has a big following in the UK. If you love Monty Python style British humor then you'll like Rankin too.

Also there's Tom Holt, another popular writer who's bigger across the pond. His Falling Sideways with its supernatural frogs and fun pacing reminded me a lot of Moore, and I've since read three other Holt novels and enjoyed each one.

I've also recently gotten into Tony Vigorito. His latest book Nine Kinds of Naked is closer to Tom Robbins than Chris Moore, but fans of Moore will dig it too.

And in case you haven't read all of Christopher Moore's novels yet, here they are. They're great to read on a plane, at the beach, or when you just want to laugh.
