Harlan Ellison has delivered an introduction for The Glass Teat & The Other Glass Teat Omnibus that is beyond description. It is titled, Welcome To The Gulag. An eight and a half minute CD will accompany each copy of both editions of the book. This one is huge. 12 inches tall, 8 inches wide, 2 inches thick, and handmade with materials created for this project. Printed on Mohawk Superfine Ultra White and Frankfurt White. The Glass Teat & The Other Glass Teat Omnibus collects all of Harlan's columns on television and the media from the L.A. Free Press, 1969/70. 102 columns, with various introductions and afterwords. This material has been out of print for 28 years. Charnel House has put it all together in one signed limited edition bound in handmade cotton paper with random typed letters embedded throughout the sheet. You've never seen anything like this. The book is printed and on it’s way to the bindery. This title is now scheduled to ship in late June.
Tim Powers has the solitary honor of having his book, A Time To Cast Away Stones, placed in Lord Byron's library at his ancestral home of Newstead Abbey in Nottingham, England. Tim is the only modern writer who can say this.

Charnel House has partnered with Newstead Abbey on their Adopt-A-Stone program ( www.newsteadabbey.org.uk ) to help raise money needed to restore the West Front which is pictured at the back of A Time To Cast Away Stones. We have gone back and made a place for ourselves in our favorite time in history. If Lord Byron doesn't like the book we're sure he will let us know.

Charnel House will be reducing the size of the numbered editions.
Charnel House will be reducing the size of the numbered editions which will now be bound by hand creating far superior books at smaller, more desirable editions.

The unprecedented response to the new Tim Powers title, A Time To Cast Away Stones, has been very strong and it is pleasing that the deluxe treatment is preferable.
Most forthcoming titles will be offered exclusively in these hand bound editions which will go up in price as it goes out of print.

A Time To Cast Away Stones by Tim Powers is in stock and shipping.
Congratulations go to Keith Reid for the honor of having written the most played song in the last 75 years. A Whiter Shade Of Pale by his band, Procol Harum came in at #1 in the UK. Check out Keith's book My Own Choice, a selection of lyrics right here on the BOOKS page.
ODD HOURS by Dean Koontz.
The book came out beautifully. The chapter numbers are printed as a red digital read-out within a drawing of a nuclear trigger and the page numbers are also printed as red digital digits counting down backwards from the first page––Page 213––to the last page––Page 1. Here are some pictures of the lettered copies from the bindery.

Look what The New York Times has to say about the collectibility of a Charnel House book:
Charnel House

Charnel House is a proud sponsor of The Newstead Abbey West Front Appeal – Adopt A Stone Program.

Newstead Abbey is Lord Byron's ancestral home. The West Front, which is the image most recognized, is in need of restoration. The Adopt A Stone program allows you to name and dedicate the stones of the 13th century West Front, the only surviving part of Newstead's former priory church, to raise funds as part of an ongoing program that will help rescue exquisite carvings from the ravages of time and restore the West Front.

The life and work of Lord Byron is a passion that this publisher is indebted to. Therefor, a portion of the profit from A Time To Cast Away Stones by Tim Powers will be donated to the West Front Appeal. You can Adopt A Stone by going to adopt-a-stone. Tell them Charnel House sent you.

Here are some lettered BROTHER ODD production pictures.
