Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“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

Meet 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.
