I'll make two quick suggestions:

The Long Walk
The Gingerbread Girl

or

Thinner
Quitters, Inc.

The first!
The Long Walk is one of my favorite Bachman books.

1. The Stand
2. IT

Sure, I may need someone to help me flip it over, but that would be some book!!!

I'm not even sure that would be possible. It'd have to be the trim size of like Knowing Darkness or something....

Oops, I didn't realize we could make our own selection here.
I'd go for The Mist plus Apt Pupil.

The Long Walk / Rose Madder - these stories really go together to me, and they are some of my favs!

I think it'd be cool to see Desperation and The Regulators. Same characters, different story. Might be a little on the long side for that though

You would look funny carry that in your back pocket!

That, at least, has a common thread to the stories...

Yes, it would fit in my Kindle, but it wouldn't fit in my back pocket.

lol, I don't put books in my back pocket anyway. I have been known to put paperback novels in my larger front pockets in the past to take to work and read during my breaks, but that was a while ago (I don't work long enough for breaks right now). That was only with books I didn't worry about damaging though obviously, but it did limit me to paperbacks when I prefer hardcover

I wonder what the size of the physical book would be though if this was done, but if this gives someone up top the idea and they do it, I think I should get a copy for free, lol ;):cool: That's not too much to ask, is it?

The Breathing Method (my favorite from Different Seasons) and The Man Who Would Not Shake Hands. Both concern the house at 249 E 35th street. There may be other short stories that are told in the house, but TMWWNSH is the only that comes to mind right now.

The Long Walk-this might really be where "reality" television is heading in the future!
Rage-for the past and sadly, the present.

I think that this would be an awesome idea. In additon to the stories, you maybe could include bios of the people who go the house a 249 E 35th street. (I would love to hear Stevens bio!) You could also show pictures of the house and the different rooms inside the house.

Pixie, that is one of the best ideas I've read on this board! I've always though of Uncle Stevie as a butler showing me around the rooms of his imagination! Course it would work great as an illustrated LE, too!

The Gold Ballroom, suuuh! Step up to the bah, there's a tale in ev'ry bottle...

Dolores Claiborne and Gerald's Game. Neither are exactly favorites of mine, though I do prefer the latter of the two choices, but they were always intended to be published as one volume, with the title, In the Path of the Eclipse. Publishing them together, especially if the original title could be used would be nice.
