Publisher Comments:

What's Weird Around Here?That's a question Mark Moran and Mark Sceurman have enjoyed asking for years--and their offbeat sense of curiosity led them to create the bestselling phenomenon, "Weird N.J." Now the weirdness has spread: several key locales throughout the U.S. are getting the full Weird treatment, with travel guides to the strange, bizarre, and wacky. Each fun and intriguing volume offers more than 250 illustrated pages of places where tourists usually don't venture--it's chock-full of oddball curiosities, ghostly places, local legends, crazy characters, cursed roads, and peculiar roadside attractions. What's NOT shockingly odd here? That every previously published Weird book has become a bestseller in its region.So join the fun on a trek through Maryland, Michigan, and Minnesota. Some of what's out there is disturbing, some hilarious, but all of it is unforgettably...weird

Synopsis:

GET WEIRD Best Travel Series of The Year 2006--Booklist What's weird around here? Mark Moran and Mark Sceurman asked themselves this question for years. And it's precisely this offbeat sense of curiosity that led the duo to create Weird N.J. and the successful series that followed. The NOT shockingly result? Every Weird book has become a best seller in its region ((Series Sales Points)) This best-selling series has sold more than one million copies...and counting Thirty volumes of the Weird series have been published to great success since Weird New Jersey's 2003 debut

Synopsis:

Call it the Free State or the Old Line State, but after reading this guide to the odd, bizarre, and unexplainable, Maryland will be officially titled the Weird State. Follow a transplanted Englishman (himself a curiosity) as he journeys through a giant cider barrel, maneuvers down Satan Wood Drive, visits the Presidential Pet Museum, says hello to the Pig Woman of Cecil County, and more. Tip: If you see the Bunnyman on your journey, move on-fast.

Thomas Kirby, January 17, 2007 (view all comments by Thomas Kirby)
This book hits a little closer to home than the others in the "Weird" series by the same authors, because I live right across the river and my family used to vacation there when I was a kid. I recognize some of the places and people from long ago. Reading about the weird and bizarre is always fun, moreso when it rekindles fond memories.
