My first choice is The Witching Hour by Anne Rice (unless it's been done). I would love to see the portrait Rembrandt painted of Deborah Mayfair come to life.

Not really the same genre, but I would love to see illustrated, signed, limited editions of the original Sword of Shannara trilogy by Terry Brooks.

Anything by Lovecraft would be my choice.

There are many scenes in Cujo that lend themselves to illustration. I really liked the movie but I'd still like to see what an imaginative artist could do with King's material.

If I remember correctly I believe there was already a Limited Edition of Cujo. Not sure if it was illustrated or not, but alot of limited editions are so it might be.

Wow, I didn't know there were so many Stephen King Limited Editions. I just discovered Cemetery Dance a few months ago and have being playing catch up on the illustrated editions. Now looks like there are more to add to the list. Thanks for posting the link!

Those aren't all just King books, but I believe they are all signed by King / contain works of his.

No, I don't believe the Cujo limited was illustrated.
I don't own a copy, but I've heard it's a rather boring limited - dull.

I would really like to see an illustrated version of Earth Abides by George Stewart. One of my favorite books of all time. OF ALL TIME, I say!

In the horror genre, GHOST STORY by Peter Straub. My favorite horror novel. Gave me nightmares for most of the 80s and when I reread it last year (after I had become familiar with the ghost stories of Henry James, Nathaniel Hawthorne and the other literary figures Straub conjures up), my spine was tingling with a more deeply-rooted dread. I don't know if I have the courage to face Fenny, Gregory, Alma and Dr. Rabbitfoot a third time; but I'd make the attempt for a CD illustrated edition.

Ghost Story by Straub is near the top of my TBR pile... It is one I'm really looking forward to.

The Ceremonies, by T.E.D. Klein. No question about it.

How about Joe Hills 20th Century Ghosts? If this hasn't been done yet it should. I think the stories lend themselves to illustrations.

PS: I think Bubble Boy has been down separately but I'm not sure about the other stories.

I think Savage by Richard Laymon would be spectacular and i agree with copefiend2 about 20th Century Ghosts as well.

I don't know if there is one already but Duma Key is one I would really like (and anything else by King really).

Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld series

KT, they're not illustrated, but if you're a Farmer fan, you should check out the volumes of his work that have been released by Subterranean Press. Some great stuff!!

Maybe not the most popular book in the world but I would also like to see "The Gates" by John Connolly illustrated. I think there is a ton of great material in this book that would look great illustrated.

A few other books, not in within the scope of CD, I would like to have illustrated editions of:

1. The Worm Ouroboros, E.R. Eddison

2. Winter's Tale, Mark Helprin

3. Mother London, Michael Moorcock

4. The Warhound and the World's Pain, Michael Moorcock

Now that I think of it more, I would love to see illustrated versions of Jeffery A. Carver's Chaos Chronicles SF series which will be a 6 book series, though just 4 are out right now (and book 4 took a very long time to come out). Found these books at the library by where I used to live when I was in HS and have been a fan ever since. If you like SF I would recommend at least checking him out if you haven't already
