We collect stories about New Jersey. That’s what we’ve been doing for the last 23 years. We like stories that make New Jersey the atypical place that it is. Maybe not weird to some, but we’ve always felt the magazine should represent everything New Jersey is distinctive for in an offbeat and wonderful way. We think that’s what gives Weird NJ magazine the timeless and decidedly “Jersey” quality that it has. We still have many avenues to travel with this project we call a magazine and we have you, the readers, to thank for keeping us on the darker roads, in the tick-infested swamps, crawling under floorboards and through musty tombs, and dodging cave crickets in dark tunnels to find new stories to entertain you.

The Wicked NEW WNJ Hoodie for 2016!

Weird NJ Presents: Home State Hauntings–True Stories Of Ghostly Places In New Jersey

Home State Hauntings is a 106 pages, fully illustrated, soft bound special issue of Weird NJ, beautifully photographed and designed by hsh-coverPaul Michael Kane with spine-tingling illustrations by Ryan Doan. Here, for the first time, we have compiled the most chilling tales ever told of supernatural encounters in New Jersey in this special issue of Weird NJ. Home State Hauntings is a collection of ghostly stories as recounted by those who have lived them; in our graveyards, on our roadways, in our institutions and yes, even in their own homes. These are the stories of otherwise regular citizens of the Garden State––our neighbors, friends, family and coworkers. But they tell us they have had experiences that are incredible, yet somehow credible––unbelievable, yet we are compelled to believe them.  While we don’t always know whether or not to believe all the ghostly tales we hear, we certainly get the sense that the people telling these tales wholeheartedly believe them. Will you? Also available through our Amazon store.

2016_fall_package-webHome State Hauntings is now available on newsstands throughout the state, or you can order through our Web Site and Amazon Store. It can also be purchased along with the latest regular issue of the magazine for one low price in our 2016Autumn Package Deal.

That’s right, the new issue of Weird NJ, #47, which just might be the BEST ISSUE EVER, is now in stores throughout the state! Be the first person on your block to read about all local legends and best kept secrets in New Jersey that we’ve unearthed over the past six months. How can it be possible, you may well ask, that after 47 issues of a magazine there are still interesting, unexpected and downright weird things to discover and write about in a state as small as this? The answer to that question is simple, THIS IS NEW JERSEY! Go to this LINK to find a store near you that carries Weird NJ. You can also purchase the new issue through our WEB SITE or AMAZON STORE.

Layout 1Weird NJ Presents True Crime Files: WNJ

In this special issue of Weird NJ we examine some of the evils that men (and women) have done unto each other in our fair state’s history – the truly bizarre, deplorable, and all too often downright senseless deeds that our residents have perpetrated against one another. But we’ll not only delve into the unusual crimes motivated by passion, lust and greed, but also atrocities that are so heinous that they would almost seem incomprehensible in our supposedly civilized society. Continue Reading…
