Talk soon,

Hi. Thanks for reading books, and for taking a break from books to talk about books.

On my mind

I'm alway happy to chat about projects I'm working on, previous books, and what led me to my various odd and unusual subjects.

Why I'm excited to talk with readers

I enjoy talking with people who share my interests or want to learn more about the weird and wonderful topics I write about, and my approach to them.  I'm curious to hear your thoughts on my books, these subjects in general, and projects you might be working on.

Fun fact

I hold multiple world records for juggling tiny objects, like cashews (salted), pumpkin seeds, and unpopped popcorn kernels. 

Let's talk!

We Are Not Alone

The Extraordinary History of UFOs and Aliens Invading Our Hopes, Fears, and Fantasies

Explore our fascination with UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence through exclusive interviews, archival photos, and strange but true stories from history. Do you want to believe?

"WE ARE NOT ALONE is a highly informative new book by Marc Hartzman that covers the UFO/UAP topic from ancient times to present. It manages to be highly entertaining and easy to read, yet fair, balanced and thorough. Because it manages to be so enjoyable and engaging, while still doing justice to the complex history of the issues, it provides an ideal introduction to the UFO/UAP topic."

― Christopher Mellon, former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence

Chasing Ghosts

A Tour of Our Fascination with Spirits and the Supernatural

Ghosts are everywhere—whether you believe in them or not. Every town has its local legends, and countless books, movies, and TV shows are haunted by their presence. But our obsession with ghosts runs deeper than we know—and is embedded in the very fabric of American history. Writer and historian Marc Hartzman dons the mantle of tour guide, taking readers on a fascinating journey through supernatural history, including the Fox Sisters and the rise of Spiritualism, along with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s beliefs in the afterlife.

"No one loves America's spooky nooks and crannies more than Marc Hartzman, and Chasing Ghosts is a beautifully-serveyed roadmap to the shadowy detours and haunted highways of our fascination with the supernatural. If you care about ghosts―and you should―this is the guide you've been waiting for."

― Grady Hendrix, New York Times bestselling author of Final Girl Support Group
