History

Established in 2008.

"In October 2008, I set into motion what it takes to establish a bona-fide publishing company out of my garage. I submerged a great many years of my life into not only the art of writing as a profession, fiction as well as non, but into the entire process of taking something creative from typed manuscripts to computer documents to something scribbled on grocery store paper bags or napkins, packaging them into a bookstore-quality products and presenting them to the world.....my own works, as well as works of others, since 2002 under the name of Diverse Media. I decided that the time had come to take my publishing pursuits to the next level and to establish Black Bed Sheet Books as a credible, reputable, and successful publishing venture."

Meet the Business Owner:

Nicholas Grabowsky's novels of horror/fantasy, both as himself, as Nicholas Randers, and as Marsena Shane, have generated worldwide acclaim for over three decades and praised by many of today's most popular horror gurus in the literary world. He began his career in traditional publishing houses with brisk sellers in mass market paperback horror, and the last ten years have seen him hailed by many as a mentor and advocate to the smaller presses, which has become to him a personal passion.
His body of work includes the award-winning The Everborn, The Rag Man, Pray Serpent's Prey, Halloween IV (and its special edition), Diverse Tales, Reads & Reviews, Red Wet Dirt, The Wicked Haze, Sweet Dreams Lady Moon, June Park, Tale of the Makeshift Faire, numerous anthologies and magazine articles, a Nancy Reagan biography, with projects extending to screenplays, poetry, songs, film, and a wide variety of short fiction and nonfiction since the 1980's.

Quotes about Grabowsky:

"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, your blissfully complex imagination...." ----Clive Barker (bestselling author & director, Hellraiser, etc.)
"Grabowsky succeeds in making the whole world creepy...." ----Heidi Martinuzzi, E! Entertainment Television
"Grabowsky's writing is at times touching and emotional, however, his real talent is his ability to infuse his writing with a sense of dread and loathing that I have not experienced since H.P. Lovecraft..." ----Tahoe Daily Tribune
"Grabowsky has imagination to spare.....!" ---Sacramento Bee
"Impressive storytelling....." ----Wes Craven (Dir., A Nightmare on Elm Street)
“…..soon we’ll all be hearing about this Grabowsky guy….” ---Joe Dante (Dir, Gremlins, The Howling)
“Keep ‘em coming, Nicholas….” ----Stephen King
“All hail Grabowsky!” ---Horrorweb.com
“Grabowsky melds horror and Sci-fi with such expertise that I am left speechless.” ---Gorezone Magazine
