World Horror Convention '08: Salt Lake City Utah
Nicholas' Diverse Media just released two novels, PRAY, SERPENT'S PREY (a re-release of Nick's 1988 bestselling first novel, see "Featured Works") and the second, THE WICKED HAZE, showcases three previously incomplete Randers works put together in a psychedelic stew (click here for details). Look for more "Books From the Vault" soon (see yellow paragraph below for related info)! Also, watch out for DIVERSE ARCANUM, a huge coffee table book showcase of full-color journal pages and tons of art!
Secondly, we've published SHOCKING TALES OF MURDER & INSANITY, raw & dark poetry by author Jake Istre! It's available now, click book image for details!
Other news.....writer/director Larry Cohen (It's Alive, Q: The Winged Serpent, etc.) telephoned Nicholas last August, concerning the It's Alive remake novelization! Details as things progress......
Nicholas will be touring and out promoting THE WICKED HAZE and DIVERSE TALES this year (2006). In the meantime, a special edition reprint of his 1988 mass market paperback romance "SWEET DREAMS, LADY MOON" is NOW AVAILABLE! This is the first title in a long line of Grabowsky-penned "books from the vault." Diverse Media is publishing these previously out-of-print books or unpublished works (like Wicked Haze, Shadow Walk and Tale of the Makeshift Faire) only through Lulu.com (because it's fast and cheap.....we're saving all new works for the big boys. Ordering details here for Lady Moon) so the reading public can do what the depths of Nick's file cabinets can't: ENJOY THEM (hopefully!)
Officially, he's set all Halloween movie matters aside (see below) and is concentrating on writing and directing "Cutting Edges", started a new novel ("The Sirens of Knowland"), and is at work on a full-length screenplay of "The Rose Hole," based on a story from Diverse Tales. We'll post any new developments as they happen, as usual!
The War of the Worlds novel reprint was released, just in time for last summer's Spielberg blockbuster! Nicholas wrote a special introduction for this book (with splendid artwork by Sean Simmans), as well as the reprint of The Invisible Man! Go to Books & Merchandise to order!
See Nicholas in the independent horror film Scalped (as a wild dog/man)! From Sacramento's Apprehensive Films....(click here for info)
There is no news of any more Grabowsky-related works in the Halloween movies franchise. There is a Grabowsky fan club at the Official Halloween Message Board for the fans that want him to pen Halloween 9 and a lot of rumors floating around the major horror news web sites, but the official word from Nick and Diverse Media is "we'll just go about other projects and not hold our breath waiting to be involved. (see "Short Fiction" for a peek at the unfinished Halloween 5 novel though)!

Many more appearances of importance to come!
An awesome experience indeed it was, at the WHC in Salt Lake. Nick hooked up with many outstanding talents and friends, such as Cody Goodfellow, Simon Clark, the folks at +The Horror Library+, and with his special guest and fellow Triad author Norm Applegate sharing his table. And that Friday night was especially a blast.
Diverse Arcanum, a full color coffee table book, contains pages from the so-named journal Nicholas carried around with him throughout an entire decade and contains entries, artwork, tidbits and contributions from the author, his friends, and famous names. Due for release 2009.
A small traditional publishing house and division of Diverse Media, Black Bed Sheet Books has opened its doors! We have nearly forty authors and unleashed an assault on the literary world in 2009 with the release of almost two dozen titles, mostly horror/fantasy, and this year (2010) is already ROCKING with our new summer releases!.
