Quotes about Grabowsky
"My Dear Nicholas: You seem to me---in a way that's entirely admirable----a man out of time.

I salute you: your ambition, your dedication, your achievements, your blissfully complex imagination...." ----Clive Barker (bestselling author & director, Hellraiser, etc.)
"Grabowsky succeeds in making the whole world creepy...." ----Heidi Martinuzzi, E! Entertainment Television
