Overview

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.

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.

    Weird N.J. Volume 2

    Being from another state, I had never heard of 'Weird NJ' until I picked up a copy of this book to look through in an airport gift shop. It was so fascinating at first glance that I ordered a copy as soon as I got back home (I would have purchased it right there on the spot, but it is a heavy hardcover book and I didn't want to have to carry it through 3 airports). When I did get to read it in its entirity I was completely astonished and more than just a little creeped out. The stories are incredibly vivid and well told. The photos are haunting and eerily beautiful. The material covers a wide range of subject matter, from the outrageously funny to the downright bone- chillingly scary. I'd recommend this book to anyone, whether they are from NJ or not. I've already ordered a copy of Vol. 1. I just hope that they will publish a Weird Montana someday!

    Weird N.J. Volume 2

    I am a longtime reader of WNJ so I naturally expected great things from this second volume. But I was truly amazed by this book. As most people know, sequels are usually filled with disappointing leftovers from the previous work. Sometimes though they actually surpass the original in quality (think Godfather 2). This book is a perfect example of that. The stories contained in this edition are more intriquing, and explored in more depth than those found in WNJ 1 (which is still an amazing and incredibly original collection). This book has actually raised the bar of the bizarre!

    Was excited about book, but found it not so interesting

    I really liked the first book, and was so excited to get the second book, but upon reading the second book, I found ti really disapointing. These places didn't seem that creepy or scary to me, it just seemed like they were mysteries that had been solved so therefor were no longer interesting
