Overview

A brand new entry in the best-selling Weird U.S. series, Weird New England proves without a doubt that the pilgrims landed in one very strange spot. So travel down our region's highways and byways with your tour guide par excellence, and learn all the stuff about New England that our school marms never taught us.

Colonists, clambakes, and the Coast Guard. Sure, those things define New England, as do witches and whale watching. And don't forget the Red Sox and the Patriots. But there's more. New England is also filled to the brim with serious strangeness. And there's no one better to chronicle the odd goings-on in our patriotic, but extremely weird section of the country than Joe Citro, a citizen in full possession of the "weird eye."

For years, Joe has traveled our six states with camera and notepad in hand, mosquito netting or snowshoes firmly in place, in search of the bizarre and the offbeat. And he found them everywhere. He has tracked down some unbelievable tales that have just enough truth in them to create the same uneasiness a chance meeting with Lizzie Borden's ghost would.We promise: it's a journey you'll never forget.

Joe Citro is an expert in New England weirdness. His many books, radio commentary series, and frequent television and radio interviews have done a lot to keep the region's legends, lore, and strange-but-true tales alive in the popular culture. He has written five suspense novels—three of which have been optioned for motion pictures—and six books about high weirdness in his native New England. Joe lives in Burlington, Vermont, where he teaches at local colleges, lectures widely, and researches the things that man was not meant to know.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
It could be argued that no other region can match New England's heritage of weirdness. Ever since the Pilgrims first stumbled on old Plymouth Rock, people in the region have been zestfully dabbling in the bizarre. Whether you favor witches, ghosts, vampires, or aliens, New England has always been a happy hunting ground for the truly abnormal. In the cause of science and good stories, Vermonter Joe Citro has traveled through these bastions of weirdness, gaining access into realms perhaps best left unvisited. This addition to the Weird U.S. series stakes its claim to paranormal supremacy with tales of the Frog People, Lizzie Borden's ghost, and a slippery visit to the Bloody Tower.

    Joe Citro is the Karl Kolchak of New England

    Usually, Joe Citro comes out with a new book every year, just before Halloween. This time, he's given us a real treat. All of the famously spooky Vermont & New England legends and ghost stories are there along with lots of new stuff, photos and illustrations. Grab a bag of candy corn and savor this book on a dark, rainy day!
