Moby Picks: F. Paul Wilson

mobylogo100b2Moby is the artist who wasn’t there—but only because he’s always in motion. From hardcore punk to techno to film scores to mainstream rock to the sampladelic commercial phenomenon that was 1999’s Play, Moby’s career can appear as a blur of forever-changing sounds, vocalists and moods. His palette has shifted to twilight blue on the home-recorded Wait For Me (out this week on Little Idiot/Mute), with noir, shapeshifting pocket symphonies such as “Shot In The Back Of The Head” and its David Lynch-created video. Moby will be guest editing this week. Read our Q&A with him.


Moby: I’m a nerd, and I read a lot of science fiction. The best sci-fi series of the last decade is, in my opinion, the Repairman Jack series by F. Paul Wilson. It’s fantastic.

I have to say, the repairman jack books I have read have been the best pieces of fiction I have read in a long time. I thoroughly enjoyed “By The Sword,” which was selected as Freedom Book of the Month for Novermber 2008, as voted by participants in the Freedom Book Club!
