    Favorite Old CD Titles

    Hi guys, I'm brainstorming a bit of a project, and I'd like to know everyone's favorite older CD title. I'm gonna say Pre-2005 (yes this date is completely arbitrary). Post your titles and let me know. Thanks!

    The two that immediately come to mind are The Traveling Vampire Show and October Dreams.

    More than one is fine. Just need to know some "Fan Favorites" so to speak.

    And since the data is arbitrary I will add a 2006 release, The Looking Glass.

    It was actually my first title with Mr. Hill's signature. I loved the round robin nature of the story.

    For me my 2 favorite older titles are Taverns of the Dead anthology and Prodigal Blues by Gary A. Braunbeck. And going back even further I would pick 411 by Ray Garton and Purity by Douglas Clegg. Both of those are from the Novella series and were my introduction to both Authors.

    I can tell you what would be my favorite CD titles, but I unfortunately never purchased them at the time (I only have one, after the year you mention): the Grave Tales comic books. Will they ever be made available on Comixology?

    Probably not. We don't really have proper distribution to put them out on a platform like Comixology.

    I jumped on the CD train in 2011. So I missed out on the early goodness. Though my faves that go furthest back in the CD publishing history that I own are IT (duh!) DINNER WITH THE CANNIBAL SISTERS, and KIN.

    Dan, are you asking boom design/production-wise or story itself?

    Story. I have an idea for a "line of books" that would involve reprints of older titles / fan favorites type of thing. Don't know if it'll come to fruition, or if we can even get rights to anything. I'm just trying to get an idea of what titles people would be interested in inexpensive (essentially trade) editions of.

    Isis is a 2006 release. It is one of my favorite books and I still remember it today.

    I think we're going to be emailing out a survey about this to try and get responses from a larger audience than are here on the forums. I'm enjoying this discussion though.

    I really liked "The Machinery of Night" by Douglas Clegg. Came out in 2005. A real doorstop of a book with some really interesting short stories.

    I would LOVE to see collected volumes of the Novella Series starting at the beginning. Maybe 2 or 3 per volume.
