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

About the Author

After graduating from Parsons School of Design, Mark Moran set out on a journey of weird discovery, wandering the back roads of the United States, listening to the tall tales locals would tell and photographing the unusual sites he found. This odd quest would lead him to unforeseen and unexpected roles as magazine publisher, author, and TV-show host. These days Mark lives a seemingly normal life in a quiet New Jersey suburb with his wife and two daughters.
and#160;
Mark Sceuerman blended his love for New Jersey and his affection for the strange into a magazine called Weird N.J., which explored every unbelievable tale he would hear while traveling around the state. The response to the publication was overwhelming, and 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. Currently Mark lives in NJ with his wife, Shirley, and their daughter.

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.
