All the Grabowsky that's fit to print!


You are NOT going to believe what we have in store at Black Bed Sheet Studios for HALLOWEEN 2023!    And with that said, if you've been one of the hundreds who have stopped by Nick's place (and the home of his publishing business) the past few Halloweens, you'll remember how we've been talking all to high hilt about expanding to, like, the back yard.  So this year, our FIFTEENTH YEAR, everyone in the area is in for quite a treat!  And as usual, free copies of books Nick will personally sign as well as some Black Bed Sheet Books authors and the association Friends of the Sacramento/Antelope Library, giving away free used children and teen books!!

In Memory of Nicholas' Mother, Doris Grabowsky 1933-2021 

Video in memory of Doris Grabowsky who passed away at home on May 1, 2021, including segments of her funeral at Saint Mary's Cemetery in Sacramento, CA on June 8, 2021. She was born Doris Ruth Moreno on January 10, 1933, during the Great Depression, to Alfred Moreno Monteagudo and Emily Moreno in Los Angeles, CA. She married Arthur John Grabowsky in the early 1960s and together they had two children, Nicholas John and Carol Jean. She and Arthur remained constantly together from the day of their marriage to their passing, and beyond. Doris was a beloved mother who will be dearly missed. We want to express sincere gratitude to the many who donated to the May 2021 fundraiser to make this funeral possible the way the Grabowsky family wanted, and this video is especially made by Doris' son Nicholas to share with all of them. Doris was laid to rest on the family plot with Arthur, who passed away October 2019, and daughter Carol, who passed away June 1995. 

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!
