If you could have one new book from a deceased author, who would it be?

Probably philosopher and theologian R.C. Sproul for me...Most likely not famous to many, but he died just several weeks ago.
If anyone has ever helped me to make any sense of the Bible as a whole, the holiness of God, my own sinful nature and wretchedness, it would be Sproul.

I think I have read all of them with the exception of the latest one which he authorized his co-writer to publish. I don't think it's come out in paperback yet.

I'm also a fan. Mitch Rapp is my kind of Secret Squirrel. Honest, loyal, decisive, effective.

John James Audubon’s, Birds of America
Last copy sold or over 11 million. I'd sell it, retire, and buy and endless supply of books to read.

Oscar Wilde wrote only one novel, "The Picture of Dorian Gray", but I wish he had written more. He clearly had a talent for it.

Umberto Eco only wrote 7 novels, but everything I've read so far makes me feel that his fictional output could've continued far past that.

I wish James Joyce had written more works in the vein of Dubliners. His works seemed to have a progressive weirdness, so if his "one new book" was akin to Finnegans Wake, I think I'll pass.

Other than Dorian Gray, the rest are short stories, but certainly I am interested in checking those out too. He also wrote many plays.

I wish Sue Grafton could have completed the alphabet. I read a couple of her books and enjoyed them but then got into historical novels. She was good for light reading. RIP
