Overview

We are very proud to announce the release of Weird NJ’s very first true eBook, Home State Hauntings. It is state of the art e-pub only compendium of ghost stories from around the Garden State. This eBook has been beautifully designed by photographer and graphic artist Paul Michael Kane, and includes all the interactive features you have you have come to expect from electronic publication from major publishers.

The notion that the souls of the dead are all around us as we live our daily lives is a weird one indeed. The thought of them inhabiting all the places we feel most familiar with; our homes, schools, libraries and theatres, can be unnerving, to say the least.

There seem to be just too many convincing stories of people’s encounters with ghosts for them not to exist. As far back as anyone can remember there have been accounts of people seeing, hearing and feeling apparitions of an otherworldly nature. Here in New Jersey is no exception. Our state has a long and rich history of paranormal activity, spirited spooks and things that go bump in the night. At Weird NJ we are fortunate enough to get to hear these stories firsthand from the people who experienced them. And, rather than try to recount them for you, we prefer to pass these stories along as they were told to us by the people who lived them. If you are a believer in ghosts these tales might help reinforce what you already suspect to be true. If you are a skeptic they might just seem like amusing goose bump reading. Perhaps, if you are on the fence about the paranormal, some of the stories in this chapter might convince you one way or another.

In Home State Hauntings you will hear tales from the Gardens State’s most haunted hotspots––our graveyards, schools, hotels and houses––all told by the people who lived though the terrifying experiences. These are the stories of otherwise regular citizens of the Garden State––our neighbors, friends, family and coworkers. But they tell us they have had encounters that are incredible, yet somehow credible––unbelievable, yet we are compelled to believe them. So, based on what you read, you will have to decide for yourself. Are these harrowing accounts of ghostly encounters all just fabrications of overactive imaginations? You be the judge. While we don’t always know if we believe the ghostly stories we hear, we certainly get the sense that the person telling them wholeheartedly believes them. Do you?

Meet the Author

Mark Moran is a lifelong resident of New Jersey. After graduating from Parson's School of Design 1983 he set out on a journey of weird discovery, wandering the back roads, back alleys and back woods of the state, listening to the tall tales locals would tell and photographing the unusual sites he found along the way. This odd quest would lead to him to his unforeseen and unexpected roles as magazine publisher, author and TV show host.

These days Mark lives a seemingly normal life in a quiet Jersey suburb with his wife and two daughters. Though his mild-mannered neighbors would never suspect it, each morning as he jumps into his Jeep to go to work, Mark begins a brand new adventure into the unknown, seldom explored and all but forgotten side of New Jersey culture.

Though he has never seen a ghost himself, he keeps his eyes and mind open to their existence, and continues to document and share the experiences of others who have had firsthand encounters with them.

Mark Sceurman
With his love for the state of New Jersey and his affection for the strange, Mark blended the two into a magazine called Weird N.J. It was an adventurous concept that explored every unbelievable tale he would hear while traveling around the state. The response to the publications was overwhelming. Thus, the journey to uncover little-known weird stories about the other 49 states began.

Mark has been in the publishing industry most of his life as a graphic designer, writer, and man behind the scenes on the New Jersey music front. For many years he’s been traveling across the United States, jumping in the car and hitting the weird road with only cryptic notes and crude directions as the guide.

He believes ghosts dwell in that thin existence between the living and the afterlife, a dimension he would rather not be stuck in when he sheds his mortal coil.

He is of New Jersey, from the county of Essex where he lives with his wife Shirley and their daughter. He likes rock ‘n’ roll, vacations “down the shore,” and was voted “most likely to spontaneously combust” in his high school yearbook.
