Hi there! I thought you might be interested in this little macabre exercise we have going for Cranioklepty. I know you already have a copy of the book (or will soon), but you're still eligible to win a finished copy. Or tell your friends!

The question is: If you could steal a skull, any skull, whose would you choose, and why?

Cranioklepty (the theft of skulls) has fallen out of fashion, but it wasn’t very long ago that stealing skulls was viewed by some as akin to possessing genius. Colin Dickey’s forthcoming CRANIOKLEPTY: GRAVE ROBBING AND THE SEARCH FOR GENIUS (Pub date: September 29, 2009) takes us on an extraordinary history of a peculiar kind of obsession. The desire to own the skulls of the famous, for study, for sale, for public (and private) display, seems to be instinctual and irresistible in some people. So we ask again, WHOSE SKULL WOULD YOU DIG?

Send us your choice—by leaving a comment on our profile page or via email ( between September 9 and October 21, 2009. We’ll be posting the most lively ones (no pun intended) and as a thank you, we’ll be sending a copy of CRANIOKLEPTY to the folks whose selections most intrigued us. Winners will be announced on October 31, 2009 (yes, on Halloween). For complete rules and regulations visit We do not, for the record, endorse the actual stealing of skulls!
