There is one full set of the Charnel House lettered collection for sale. For the seriously interested please e-mail for information from this site.
The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz is at the bindery and should ship at the end of October. I am sorry for the long delay on this title. Greg Campbell has bound the Charnel House editions by hand for the past couple of decades and I felt it a prudent decision to wait for him to set up shop in his new location.That said, these books don't like to adhere to the schedules I set for them. This title fought me tooth and nail and I would like to thank my customers who have had great patience with me as well as the want of a fine hand made book. A pre-order E-blast will go out later this month for The Whispering Room by Dean Koontz which is already in production.
The Collected Stories of Tim Powers is now being designed. The 22 story Charnel House Edition will be a tall drink of water in a binding you have never seen or touched before. More on this title soon.
BLACK RIVER, I'll Be Watching Over You by Dean Koontz. When Dean ends this series of novellas and novelettes Charnel House will issue a slipcase to house the entire series. There are copies of this title still available for purchase. Order now to own the first book of this series, you can then retain your number for the rest of the series.

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 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.
