9781402739415: Weird N.J., Vol. 2: Your Travel Guide to New Jersey's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets

New Jersey is even WEIRDER than we thought!
From the authors of Weird N.J.—with more than 125,000 copies sold—comes a second amazing collection of the wonderful weirdness that fills every inch of the Garden State. One of the bestselling books ever to hit New Jersey was Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran’s Weird N.J. The book was such a phenomenon that it began a whole series of Weird state books, each one a bestseller. But the Marks, as they are called, always knew that there were more, bizarre stories lurking in their own home state. So back they went, camera and notebook in hand, to travel the highways and byways of New Jersey to chronicle more weirdly bizarre stories. And what did they find? How about the pathway of a doctor’s office paved with tombstones? Or a pumpkin-shaped house? Then there’s the Hub Cap Tree, the Birdsville Church (yes, a church for birds), and the bowling ball pyramid that graces one proud resident’s front lawn. Fun too are the haunted houses to visit, the ghosts to chat with, and the cursed roads to travel down. It’s all part of the long, strange trip known as Weird N.J.

About the Author:

Mark Moran graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City, where he studied fine art, illustration, and photography. He lives with his wife, Barbara, and their two daughters in a boring suburban New Jersey neighborhood (when he is not out tracking down satanic albino cannibals). Mark Sceurman blended his love for New Jersey and his affection for the strange into a magazine called Weird N.J. The response was overwhelming, beginning a journey to uncover little-known weird stories about the other 49 states. Mark lives in New Jersey with his wife, Shirley, and their daughter. He likes rock 'n' roll and vacations “down the shore,” and in high school was voted “most likely to spontaneously combust.” So far it hasn't happened. 

Review:

“If you want weirdness, look no further.”--USA Today
“This is the stuff you wished you learned in school. (Or maybe you did, but you weren't allowed to talk about it in class.)”--Newsday
“Provides a trove of bizarre stuff to ponder.”--Houston Chronicle
“Deliciously demented.”--Library Journal


Praise for Weird N.J.:
“They are the chroniclers of the creepy, bards of the bizarre ... From abandoned asylums to colorful real-life characters past and present, to folk stories of ghosts, monsters, and aliens, Mr. Sceurman and Mr. Moran have created a journal of New Jersey's unwritten history.”--the New York Times
“Enough with the head-severing mobsters of Jersey. The state is packed with far more evil than TV could ever invent--from satanic Klan rallies to time-traveling tree farmers. And Weird N.J. has the pictures to prove it.”--Rolling Stone
“Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran see their native state as others do not. For them, it is a demented Disneyland of worldly, and otherworldly, delights.”--the Boston Globe
“If it's the offbeat, paranormal or downright weird that you crave ... there could be no better place.”--USA Today
