1984 by George Orwell, i just think hearing about a dead future and a dead past through a skull is some how fitting

Lisely said...

"Hamlet" by Shakespeare.

David Bird said...

Neil Gaiman's M is for Magic....

john said...

My guess, Servant of the Bones by Anne Rice or maybe Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut.

email is tonto@bex.net or thru etsy.com/johnnynothumbzzz

Tatman said...

Of course a skull would love to listen to Skulls, an audio book about his friends.

Twana Gilles said...

It would be Treasure Island me thinks!!! Ye old classics never die, ya rekon??? Aye me hardees!! YO HO!!!!!

Redhead Fae said...

My skulls would listen to Bones of the Barbary Coast by Daniel Hecht.

science33 said...

Desert Solitaire
science33@sbcgloabal.net
or for the skulls music pleasure, some AFP, with Who KIlled Amanda Palmer.

ShellHawk said...

I think they'd listen to The Haunted Mansion or The Shining, of course! Who wouldn't?

Morte said...

Well of course "Skulls by Noah Scalin"

Tuffy said...

Slaughterhouse V... very skully.

christopher575 said...

Hamlet, of course! Where else does a skull get so much attention?

Rhonny Reaper said...

Stephen King's Dreamcatcher (just got in on a 20 cd set :) )

rhonnyreaper@yahoo.com

xineko said...

Terry Pratchett's 'Reaper Man' would be favorite - and one of mine, too!

I ar tigerbay(at)northwestel(dot)net

Leann said...

Perhaps "The Tell-Tale Heart", by Edgar Allen Poe.

Mrs. DeRaps said...

I think that The Book Thief, which is narrated by "Death" would be an appropriate choice for these skull-icious earbuds.

hderaps@mtbluersd.org

dbz711 said...

As Simple As Snow. Its a good book. I don't think a skull would care much to hear about other skulls anyway...Assuming he wants to hear a story in the first place we can conclude that he is sentient. Generally, most skulls in literature have no such quality! So what comfort would he find in reading of other dissimilar, lifeless and dull bones?...Yeah, he would want to hear something a little thought-provoking instead, I think. :)

Alex said...

good omens by gaiman and pratchet

amber said...

choke.

amber.rieger@gmail.com

biddypunk said...

To me a skull represents what we are when all of our pretense is stripped away. I think a skull would like to listen to confessional poetry and journals read by Sylvia Plath.

Nikoli said...

I'm with Leann and think Poe's work would be a skull favorite. Though if a winner, I'll be listening to BoneJovi with them.

DepraveDave said...

"The Great & Secret Show" by Clive Barker

MsLestat said...

A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore, naturally.

Warlord Blade said...

I think they'd listen to any of the Terry Pratchett novels, especially those dealing with Death hisself.

Vanessa said...

they would listen to the audio book version of...Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull!

atouchofmaddness said...

Ozzy Osbourne's new book " i am ozzy" these headphone's would go with the price of darkness words of wisdom ..if you could understand what he says...

Amy said...

war of the worlds...and the music of rob zombie of course =)
amydhull(at)gmail(dot)com

Jenny Garza said...

I think it would listen to something by Kathy Reichs.

Lisa South said...

Any skull would enjoy the Joe Pitt series by Charlie Huston. Pulp-noir at its finest!

lisa@badbabyart.com


PS - I the Morbid King buds are especially AWESOME!

letty said...

hamlet

zackofalltrades said...

The Necronomicon, of course !!! I mean, what skull wouldn't enjoy a nice audio book of the means for summoning the Old Ones?

Stac said...

The Exorcist, as read by the author-- that's some scary stuff! Much more intense than the movie, which I didn't even know was possible.

lemonwitch@hotmail.com

bobthewalrus said...

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, I think. Actually...probably nearly anything by Gaiman ;)

Megan said...

For the audio book: Skull Duggery by Aaron Elkins

For music: It would have to be the album by Band of Skulls called "Baby Darling Doll Face Honey"

tristan said...

Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan's The Strain

nitebyrd said...

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." Every skull should listen to that book!

Dr. Spanky said...

a skull, huh? well, isnt it the bones of a human? sooooooo...wouldnt it be listening to whatever the human chooses? XD

Eli Zachary said...

Skulls would listen to Edgar Allan Poe's "Tell-tale Heart" or "The Pit and the Pendulum".

These two stories invoke strong themes concerning the sanctity of life and the resultant dilemma of what is death like and what is means to take a life.

Obviously have to go with the philosophical, since when you are dead, you got all the time you want to think.....despite that there is no brain left in your head.

Scoob said...

The Statement of Randolph Carter
by H. P. Lovecraft most definitely

"Again I say, I do not know what has become of Harley Warren, though I think--almost
hope--that he is in peaceful oblivion, if there be anywhere so blessed a thing. It is true
that I have for five years been his closest friend, and a partial sharer of his terrible
researches into the unknown. I will not deny, though my memory is uncertain and
indistinct, that this witness of yours may have seen us together as he says, on the
Gainsville pike, walking toward Big Cypress Swamp, at half past 11 on that awful night.
That we bore electric lanterns, spades, and a curious coil of wire with attached
instruments, I will even affirm; for these things all played a part in the single hideous
scene which remains burned into my shaken recollection."

Skeleton Crew by Stephen King! tWarner419@aol.com

The Scarlet Circus Ring Master said...

I will stray from my normal response of anything by Edgar Allan Poe and say listening to Clive Barker's Mister B Gone would be perfect.

email -mark.mihalko(at)comcast

Tatman said...

I would be totally disappointed if someone didn't mention "Get In The Van" by Henry Rollins. He is a GREAT story teller.

Dawn said...

I think they would like to listen to The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury.

Hiro C. said...

H.P. Lovecraft's Call of Cthulu, followed by Metallica's Call of Cthulu.

I believe they would be reading a copy of "Bone Appitite" Magazine!

Grey Matter said...

The Monkeys Paw. I just read it and can imagine the figure at the door with a skull & zombie-like appearance.

Loligo said...

I think George Carlin's "Brain Droppings" would be appropriate for that foramen magnum. Or, for the more refined skull, Alighieri's "Divina Commedia."

You can reach me at Chroshere@aol.com

Mr. Stranger said...

Any skull would love to read Stephen King's short story "The Body"... I think.

Kozytartan said...

H. P. Lovecraft's collected works.

Why, "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold of course!

siddownshaddup@yahoo.com

Caren said...

Hey, you can call me a dweeb, but Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince would be the perfect great book to listen to with the skull earphones.

Ashtaroth said...

My first thought was also the Necronomicon but since that has been suggested maybe a close second albeit a much less fun title would be "On Death and Dying"
by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Brad said...

Skeleton Crew by Stephen King.

I would have to say Clive Barkers Cabal, just because it is one of my favorite Barker stories.

A skull would be perfectly happy listening to 'The Strain' by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Listening to this book through a set of skulls is the way it should be.

I think the would enjoy A Punisher audio book.

James said...

How about my own audiobook that was released a few years ago, HOLY ROLLERS? It's a disturbing tale that asks, "What if those pesky door-to-door evangelists showed up on your front porch one day . . . but then they absolutely refused to leave until you had listened to their 'Good Word'? What if they carried guns, a straight-razor . . . and something even scarier, locked up in a black leather briefcase?"

Tara said...

Night on Bald Mountain, or Phillip Glass' Orphee. Or even Damnation de Faust. Something strong and powerful, from hell itself.

Leslie said...

I think she would like to listen to Dante's "La Divina Commedia" - in Italian, of course.

feedmefarmer said...

Anne Rice - Servant of the Bones.
Her books always make a great audio experience.

"The hollow skull" by Christopher Pike.

Apryl DeLancey said...

I think a skull would like to listen to Imajica by Clive Barker. Period.

luvskulls said...

Maybe they would listen too the worm song, "The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, into your stomache and out your mouth. "

Karen said...

My skulls would be curious skulls. They'd listen to "The Archaeology of Death and Burial" by Parker Pearson, and then follow up with something like "Dead Men Do Tell Tales" by William Maples. After that they might start talking back!

Holl-iE Pocket said...

"The Silence of the Lambs" by Thomas Harris

I believe a Skull would find the face transplant quite amusing.

clefcrossheart@gmail.com

Elissa said...

The best book would be Christopher Moore's "Dirty Job"(http://www.chrismoore.com/dirty_job.html).
The obvious choice would be "The Lovely Bones" a novel by Alice Sebold.

Shattered_star86 said...

There are a few I would listen to and read with these skulls... Along with the others in my collection!!!...
1~ The Lovely Bones By Alice Sebol
2~ Exiliana By Mariela Griffor
3~ SKULLS: the skull-a-day book By Noah Scalin
4~ Picking Bones From Ash By Marie Mutsuki Mockett
5~ Bone Crossed By Patricia Briggs
6~ Bare Bones: A Novel By Kathy Reichs
There are a ton more not to mention all the music and movies!!!...

The Robe of Skulls: The First Tale from the Five Kingdoms, by Vivian French. What else!?

Christina said...

I think they would rather enjoy 'A Rose for Emily' by William Faulkner. (I know it's a short story and not a full novel, but I still think they'd like it.

Stephanie said...

I am actually going to go with two books, Choke, and Wicked. To amazing books, perfect for a skull to get more educated on himself lol

aleutgirl said...

Most definately, "A Dirty Job," by Christopher Moore.
