Joe Moe has written for Phil Kim's Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine ever since it was relaunched in 2008. His interview style has been described as "insider" as his friendships with some of his subjects make for intimate and insightful conversation. His sentimental Forry Ackerman essays, an article on director Jennifer Lynch on the eve of helming her first The Walking Dead episode, and his recurring coverage of Showtime's Penny Dreadful have been hallmarks of his FM contributions.

Joe Moe provides a candid introduction to this "kitchen sink" bio about his best friend and genre icon Forrest J Ackerman. Only a couple of months out and already in its second printing, this is a hardcover edition lovingly written by Deborah Painter and published by McFarland Publishing.

Jim Green and Al Astella have put together this trade-paperback about the notorious "Ackermansion". Composed mostly of Al's pictures from visits to this odd-ball museum of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror memorabilia. Joe Moe has written the afterword for this colorful book on the unique house he lived in with Forry Ackerman from the 80's right up until the time it was dismantled. Published by Midnight Marquee Press.

Anthology of the Living Dead

Edited by J. Travis Grundon, published by Nicholas Grabowski's Black Bed Sheet Books imprint, features Joe's story: A HICCUP. A REMEDY. Joe is also a contributer to Phil Kim's Famous Monsters of Filmland.

"Joe Moe was raised on my iconic monster magazine and is now raising monsters of his own. In his story, A HICCUP. A REMEDY, Joe gives a fresh (er, rotten?) spin to the Zombie genre. Like Joe's screenwriting, his short story is cinematic, disturbing and wildly creative. In short, Joe Moe's gruesome tale is to (un)die for!" – Forrest J Ackerman, Original editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine.

"The talented Mr. Moe has taken a well-worn horror theme and treated it in an amazingly literate, wholly unorthodox way. It will be remarked upon forever after." – Earl Roesel, Scarlet Street: the magazine of Mystery and Horror.
