I am 



New trade paperback edition ON SALE NOW!

It will totally blow you away

"My Dear Nicholas: You seem to me---in a way that's entirely admirable----a man out of time. You're writing horror epics when the audience has become increasingly numbed by cinematic hokum and stale ideas. I SALUTE YOU: your ambition, your dedication, your achievements. I have no doubt in my mind that there is much, much more to come from your fertile and blissfully complex imagination, and I'll await the next work with much anticipation!"

---- Clive Barker

(Director, producer, artist and bestselling author --Hellraiser, Nightbreed, Lord of Illusions)

Nicholas Grabowsky's Diverse Compendium


We've had this domain (, which is named after a novel titled "The Downwardens" that Nick still has yet to finish), and we've been on this site since probably 2002. It's had many incarnations over the years, and we're very proud of this user-friendly and responsive modern look that we've had for a few years now with Wordpress.  While Nick has been obsessively keeping up with Black Bed Sheet Books, you'll find this site keeping up with him!  We deeply appreciate your patronage, fandom, and readership!
