    my vote is for MISERY. for his shorter works its a masterpiece, i prefer King straight up, neat, by the shot. Am I the only one who prefers it when the "bad guy" is human instead of supernatural ? As great as the movie is, i was a tiny bit disipointed by the horrific hobbling scene, as i had always wanted to know what a "salt dome" would look like! ( yes i do slow down at accident sites why do you ask?)

    I would be torn about who would be best for illustrating it. Alan Clark? Glenn Chadbourne?? Whoever it would be, an illustrated 2 volume (to make it more readable) edition of IT would be beyond fantastic!!!

    One of my favorites is CUJO. This one scared me the most when I was growing up and it still gave me the willies 30 years later. It has it's flaws to be sure, but this bare-bones, unneutered, horrorshow is unparalleled in Kings universe. And after seeing the cover of "Picking the Bones", let Vincent Chong illustrate it.

    I love working with Chong -- he's terrifically talented and his art brings a lot of depth to a project.

    My choice has been revised from Different Seasons to The Mist. I could see that as a double, like Riding the Bullet.

    But - there is a S/L Eyes of the Dragon.
    A gorgeous Philtrum Press edition.
    I think it was even my first S/L.

    Just the novella.
    At one time Frank Darabont was working on it.
    But that was years ago...
    Anyone know what happened?

    sk
    Definitely one of the better films to have come from a King story - but what else would you expect from Darabont - the man seems to turn everything he touches to gold as far as supernatural/horror work goes.

    I thought Philtrum did an excellent job on the Signed/Limited edition of EYES OF THE DRAGON, including the interior production.





    Example of the artwork inside the book. I wish I had saved a larger version so we could see the detail.

    It's not one I own, but I love that edition. It's a beautiful, well-made book.

    I would say that "Lisey's Story" would be a definite first choice for me. After seeing the cover artwork of "boo-ya moon" I wished the entire book was illustrated. Some of the artwork could be very graphic (Like when Scot's father cuts his sons)

    My second choice would be "Duma Key" I saw the picture of the ship painting in "Knowing Darkness" and thought it was beautiful. And hey, the book is about painting and drawing, so I think it would make a lot of sense to have a S/L limited with lots of artwork.
