True tales of the Paranormal by Jason Offutt

Updated: 2018-04-22T10:27:13.433-05:00


'A Funeral Story'



Jason Offutt’s first novel, A Funeral Story,” is here.

Flirting with the bereaved isn’t easy Deever Dickson is a normal guy. He has friends, mows the lawn, bowls on Saturday, and hates his job. But Deever has a secret. A secret that rates so high on the Creepometer he can’t tell anyone – ever. Deever Dickson has sex with strangers at funerals. Deever’s adept at keeping his sex life hidden. What he never anticipated was meeting Marissa, a woman with the same hobby, and falling for her – hard. When someone close to Deever dies at the biggest science fiction convention of the year this is one funeral Deever and his new relationship are not prepared for. Filled with romance, funerals, beer, bowling, and a time machine, A Funeral Story chronicles the love of Deever Dickson, a normal guy with an abnormal secret.

"Shadow People" (2013) a Movie Review

Any resemblance between events in the movie and my 2009 book "Darkness Walks" (Anomalist Books), is understandable.

My New Book


My newest book, "Across a Corn-Swept Land: An epic beer run through the Upper Midwest," is now available.

OK, so it's not a book on the paranormal, it's a humorous travelogue about my trip from Missouri to Canada on a rural highway to find some really good beer. I do explore a 1960s UFO encounter near Long Prairie, Minnesota, in Chapter 8, so it's kinda paranormal. It's also lots of fun.

Copies are available from my publisher, North Star Press, or Amazon. If you want an autographed copy, contact me at

New Paranormal Posts


Wow. How easy it is to fall behind. No excuses here, just an apology for not posting in a while. Here are my three latest paranormal offerings at Mysterious Universe:

1) We've all heard of Black-Eyed Kids, those creepy, surprisingly lucid children who demand to be let into a person's home. In a semi-hypnotic haze, the homeowner almost lets them in ... almost. These stories are strikingly similar, but occasionally one will emerged that is much more terrifying: "When Paranormal Entities Change Their Own Rules."

2) Gnomes, trolls, goblins; these are all make-believe entities from our superstitious past, right? Not according to people who've seen these diminutive beasties: "Encounters With Gnomes - Part 1."

3) Part two of this short series takes us to Porterville, California, where two different families were terrorized by the same cackling, evil little man: "Encounters With Gnomes - Part 2."
