The Girl in the Corn by Jason Offutt

Thomas, a non-believer in fairies, has a life-changing experience when he follows one into his family’s cornfield and survives an explosion unharmed. Thomas comes across Dauor, a destructive force that poses a threat to the fairy realm and his own sanity.

The fairy stood out as an especially intriguing character among the others, who also had a lot of depth. Reading numerous stories allows me to appreciate diverse writing styles and storytelling talents. The author’s writing style is distinct and undoubtedly capable of captivating storytelling. This story was far from the usual 'fairy' tale. Covering multiple time periods, including the 80s, the author includes references that were specific to each era. There is a diverse set of characters. Certain entities possess enchanting powers while others pose a threat, causing heightened turmoil and an unforeseeable outcome.

Many thanks to @TheJasonOffutt & @HenryRoiPR for the chance to review it.


About the Author

Jason Offutt grew up on a farm near the little town of Orrick, Missouri. In his life he’s been a farm hand, journalist, photographer, bartender, and the mayor of that same small town. Jason now teaches journalism at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville and keeps the world safe from the forces of evil.

Okay, so now that the interview bio’s out the way, here’s who I really am. I’m a nerd. A Dungeons and Dragons playing, “Star Trek” watching, conspiracy theory Fanboy. “The Twilight Zone” is the greatest television program ever created, author Michael Crichton was a wizard, and I once went to a Halloween party dressed as Gilligan (my wife went as Mary Ann. Hubba hubba).

As a kid I looked for Sasquatch footprints in the yard, UFOs over our farmhouse (one night my whole family saw something that shouldn’t – couldn’t – have been in the sky. Damn straight), and one afternoon, alone, I saw a full-bodied apparition that stared at me through hollow eyes.
