Hello, there: I’m Jason Ward, a Glasgow-based writer and journalist. My latest book is A Year of Good Things.

My work has appeared in publications including The Guardian, Little White Lies, Dazed, Curzon and Hot Rum Cow, and I’ve contributed to books including Movie Star Chronicles and 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. I am also the author of Chilling Cocktails, the collection of comic flowcharts Should You Buy This Book? and nine puzzle books including Alice’s Puzzles: Through the Looking Glass, Puzzles from the Nether and Edgar Allan Poe’s Puzzles From the Grave. From 2011 to 2019 I contributed to Oh Comely magazine as its Associate Editor.


This is me, leaning against a wall for the Japanese magazine Popeye. It's a long story.
