David Bowie came from another world. Or, at least, listening to his music seems to launch us far beyond the confines of this one.

More terrestrially, it can transport us beyond the circumstances of our everyday existence — from poverty to dukedom, from the suburban to the surreal. His music was a space of endless possibility. A master mythologist, Bowie embodied the idea of constant self-reinvention. He was the very personification of story.

To celebrate the release of Melville House’s David Bowie: The Last Interview, music journalist, novelist, and lifelong Bowie devotee Jason Heller has written here about the role that Bowie’s storytelling has played in his life, and his development as a writer.

Jason’s Bowie-inspired book, Strange Stars, is in progress and forthcoming from Melville House. In it, he tells the wild, loud, weird, and totally unexpected story of science fiction’s massive influence on popular music, particularly during the boom enjoyed by both in the 1970s.
