In the course of its extraordinary history, the Jersey Devil has been exorcised, shot, electrocuted, declared officially dead, and scoffed as foolishness--none of which has had any effect on it or the people who persist in seeing it!This mysterious creature is said to prowl the lonely sand trails and mist-shrouded marshes of the Pine Barrens, and emerge perioducally to rampage through the towns and cities of New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, leaving many communities in near-hysteria.The authors show that while a few appearances have been out-right fraud and others have likely been the result of mass hysteria, this creature has been seen by enough sane, sober, and responsible citizens to keep the possiblity of its existence alive and tantalizing.Over 50,000 in print

Reputed to be haunted by spirits, it’s an unsettling place to be sure. But of all the mysterious happenings and sights to be found in the Pine Barrens, there is none so intriguing as the Jersey Devil.

Is the Jersey Devil real? Award-winning author Trinka Hakes Noble weaves a spellbinding tale about the origins of the legend of the Jersey Devil. Atmospheric illustrations by artist Gerald Kelley bring the tale to spooky life.

For 25 years the architects who make up Jersey Devil have been constructing their own designs while living on site in tents or Airstream trailers, making adjustments to their structures in response to problems encountered during the building process. Jersey Devil is a name that has been attached to work by Steve Badanes, John Ringel, Jim Adamson, or any combination of the above, plus many other people who have participated in their diverse projects. This loose-knit group of designer-builders has created projects that critique conventional practice, both the process of making architecture and the accepted definitions of architecture itself. Jersey Devil's architecture shows a concern for craft and detail, an attention to the expressiveness of the construction materials, and a strong environmental consciousness. Devil's Workshop contains complete project descriptions, photographs, drawings, and plans on more than a dozen projects, including the Snail House, the Silo House, the Hoagie House, and the Seaside Pavillion. Essays analyze Jersey Devil's work, providing an insight into the design-build process and its historical context, and discussing the formal qualities inherent in these projects.

Normally one would expect a brief biography of the author on the back cover of his or her book, but in this case I can offer the reader very little information about Eric Leeds. As an editor of a good sized publishing house, I wouldn't be expected to know all of our authors well. But I can honestly say that I've met and spoken with most of the writers we publish. I've gotten to know a few better than others and in cases where friendship has developed I've gotten to know those writers quite well. This is not the case with the author of this book though. Mr. Leeds remands as much a mystery to me now, as he was on the day we met. Mr. Leeds appeared in my office late one evening a few years ago. We spoke briefly. He left his manuscript. I didn't get around to reading his work until some time later. When I finally got the chance to pick it up, I heard from Eric again. He called me on the phone, just as I was turning the last page. I must say, the timing of his call was quite startling. I met him one more time after that. All I can say about Eric Leeds is that he is a very interesting man.Salvaje OrquideaThe truth of life is always where you seek it.Find the secret in these words and then agree to keep it.www.americandemons.com

Five suburban mall rats and a washed up Goth singer find themselves stranded in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey where they discover two horrifying truths: The Jersey Devil, hellspawn of folklore and legend, is real; and New Jersey (as many already suspected) is the gateway to Hell! With the help of one lone witch, this small group must face off against their deepest fears and the most unholy monsters in a battle where their very souls, the world they live in, and any chance of returning to Hot Topic in one piece is at stake! The first novel by musician and horror media personality, Aurelio Voltaire, Call of the Jersey Devil is a hilarious and terrifying homage to 80s horror and genre films. Like a mad doctor, Voltaire has Frankensteined together elements of Evil Dead, The Breakfast Club, Poltergeist, and This is Spinal Tap to create a creature feature that will have you laughing out loud when you're not glancing nervously over your shoulder.

Gary Gentile s seminal novel of supernatural horror that was first published as The Lurking Based on actual legend, the story begins when the monster known as the Jersey Devil manifests itself in the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey after the accidental exhumation of a human skeleton. Newspaper reporter Elaine Adams happens to be in the area during the gruesome event. She delves into the lore and gore of the creature whose deathless existence is blamed for the subsequent series of abominable fatalities. She uncovers more than she ever bargained for when she learns that people have been disappearing in the Pine Barrens for years - for decades. Helped by her husband and hampered by an obnoxious sheriff, she digs deep into the mysterious deaths and dismemberments that recommence every seven years - a cycle that coincides with the Jersey Devil s regular reappearances. Quickly she is swept into an ageless conspiracy of satanic cultists who not only worship the Jersey Devil, but who feed it by means of human sacrifice in a sensual but brutal ritual in which the victims are impaled on wooden stakes. What Elaine Adams hopes will be the greatest story of her career might instead turn out to be her last. Already one reporter has vanished in the quest to unravel the mystery of the Jersey Devil. Would she be the next?

"For the better part of two centuries, at least, the story of the Jersey Devil has been part of the culture of Southern New Jersey. A fire-breathing monster with the head of a horse, bat wings and the body of a kangaroo, the creature is said to be the thirteenth child of Mother Leeds, born in 1735, when the unfortunate woman put a curse on her future offspring. Informed at a tender age by his BeBop (his grandmother) that he is distantly related to the beast, Bill Sprouse goes looking for the story behind the story of his family's connection to the famous monster. The result is part memoir, part travelogue and part a raucous tour of three-hundred years of New Jersey history. The domestic life of the Jersey Devil traces the origins of the Jersey Devil legend to an obscure pamphlet war that sent the Leeds family to Leeds Point at the end of the seventeenth century, with the family patriarch, Daniel Leeds, branded Satan's Harbinger in the process. If follows the story through its connection with the residents of the Pine Barrens (the famous Pineys), who were said to live in fear of the beast, and, finally, it examines the legend in its modern iterations: X-files episodes are made about the monster, a pro hockey team is named after it, and residents of Galloway Township attempt to adopt the creature as the official town mascot. The domestic life of the Jersey Devil is a book about suburban identity, and about one suburbanite's attempt to come to terms with his family history in the most unlikely of places."--

“Old school horror.” —Jonathan Maberry THE LEGEND LIVES Everyone knows the legend of the Jersey Devil. Some believe it is an abomination of nature, a hybrid winged beast from hell that stalks the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey searching for prey. Others believe it is a hoax, a campfire story designed to scare children. But one man knows the truth... THE DEVIL AWAKES Sixty years ago, Boompa Willet came face to face with the Devil—and lived to tell the tale. Now, the creature’s stomping grounds are alive once again with strange sightings, disappearances, and worse. After all these years, Boompa must return to the Barrens, not to prove the legend is real but to wipe it off the face of the earth... THE BEAST MUST DIE It’ll take more than just courage to defeat the Devil. It will take four generations of the Willet clan, a lifetime of survivalist training, and all the firepower they can carry. But timing is critical. A summer music festival has attracted crowds of teenagers. The woods are filled with tender young prey. But this time, the Devil is not alone. The evil has grown into an unholy horde of mutant monstrosities. And hell has come home to New Jersey... “Shea delivers a tense and intriguing work of escalating tension splattered with a clever, extensive cast of bystanders turned victims...An otherwise excellent, tightly delivered plot...Fans of cryptid creatures are likely to revel in this love letter to a legendary menace.”– Publishers Weekly Raves for The Montauk Monster “A lot of splattery fun.”—Publishers Weekly “Frightening, gripping.”—Night Owl Reviews

On a stormy night in 1735, a healthy babe, William Leeds, is born in the colony of New Jersey. Preternatural circumstances surround the birth, and his early life, which culminate in the knowledge that he is in fact a demon, the one that is called 'The New Jersey Devil.' However, there is more to fear in the colonies than William Leeds. An attack on his home in the Pine Barrens forces him to escape to Philadelphia in 1776, where he becomes intrigued by a pretty servant girl, Adeline Stevens. With the colonies in the first stages of revolt against the British, he schemes to make her his bride and steal her away back to his home in the Pines. Ancient and dangerous foes, enigmatic and indifferent allies, and a determined Native American tracker harass him throughout, but it is not until what he treasures most is threatened that William deviates from the normal existence he longs for and is forced to embrace the demon within.
