Jason's latest book:
What Lurks Beyond
The Paranormal in Your Backyard

Ghosts, aliens, a time traveler, and a mind-reading dog could be fiction, but Jason Offutt investigates true tales of these and other paranormal events that happened within 100 miles of his home.

And if you like What Lurks Beyond...
Haunted Missouri:
A Ghostly Guide to the Show-Me State's Most Spirited Spots

Jason delves into the "mysterious cold spots, disembodied voices and smoky apparitions" found throughout the State of Missouri.

I’ve never laughed so hard in my life...

Jason Offutt is a writer.
Not the kind of writer who knocks you in the head with words then takes your wallet.

Not the kind of writer who’s just clever enough that no one knows what in the hell he’s talking about.

And not the kind of writer who’s so timid he still wets the bed.


Jason is the kind of writer who occasionally comes up with a line or two that aligns your karma in a cosmic Magic 8 Ball sort of way. His work may even give you the random "Wow. That might actually make sense if I was on pain medication." And he’ll occasionally surprise you with a profound message . . . but any actual profound message usually occurs by complete accident, or after loads and loads of beer.

Yet, after all this, he has never been knighted by the English royalty. Nope. Not once.

Stupid monarchs.

But enough said. Welcome to Jason’s Web site. Take a few of his columns for a test drive, laugh at the way you can see his scalp through what’s left of his hair, send him an e-mail to tell him what you think about him and yes, oh, yes, sign up for his e-mail newsletter.
