To commemorate All Hallows’ Read 2013, Black Phoenix Trading Post has conspired with Neil Gaiman and Neverwear to create this ghastly bottle stand. Featuring the graves of three of horror’s greatest and equipped to house three BPAL bottles, this is a must for every literature-lover’s macabre mantelpiece!

The idea of it is incredibly simple this Halloween give somebody a scary book, to read. That’s the idea.

We’re not saying don’t give candy, candy is important, fake blood is important, Zombie teeth are incredibly important… Err do they have Zombie teeth? If they have Zombie Teeth they would be incredibly important.

The point is, give somebody a scary book. Give kids scary books that kids would like. Give adults scary books that adults would like. If you have friends give them scary book that friends would like.

Buy scary books for them, borrow scary books for them. Get them second hand. Check them out of the library…

Spread the joy… and the terror.

-Neil Gaiman

Proceeds from sales of the All Hallows’ Read Bottle Graveyard and the All Hallows’ Apple scent benefit the CBLDF.

 Graveyard Bottle Stand created by Michael Locascio at Dellamorte & Co.

Given the amount of love out there right now for all things NEVERWHERE, I thought I should point out that Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab have a Neverwhere line of scents. Smell like the Marquis de Carabas (A splash of bay rum, leather, dusty black wool, massoia bark, and opium residue), or like Door, or like a Floating Market (A cacophony of curious scents: copaiba balsam, petitgrain, citrus rind, sinicuichi accord, betel nut, wasabi root, coconut palm, and wattleseed layered atop innumerable strange herbs, spices, and woods.) or Night’s Bridge or one of twelve different magical wonderful scents.

And the best bit of it is the scents benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. This is a good thing.

The Law is a blunt instrument. It’s not a scalpel. It’s a club. If there is something you consider indefensible, and there is something you consider defensible, and the same laws can take them both out, you are going to find yourself defending the indefensible.

Because sometimes it needs restating.
