    Maybe a double pack with The Illiad?

    Don't! As a Classicist, I would KILL to do make that happen. Don't think it hasn't been suggested!

    Richard Marsh's The Beetle would be ideal for the Classic treatment. Especially under Scott Handcocks guidance.

    Absolutely. I wasn't sure about The Iliad being adapted because it's a difficult story to adapt. The Odyssey though is a fairly easy story to adapt.

    Well it's mostly about the end of the Trojan war which is less condensed that the Odyssey, despite the fact it switches between different people.
    What I find most sad about these two is they are part of a bigger story known as the Epic Cycle which included Cypria, Illiad, Aethiopis, Little Illiad, Ilious persis "Sack of Troy", Nostoi "returns", Odyssey and Telegony. Each tells a different part of the war itself with Cypria detailing the events leading up to the war after Helen is taken, Aethiopis about the arrival of the Trojan allies, their defeat and the death of Achilles, Little Illiad being the events after including the building of the horse, Ilious persis is self explanatory, Nostoi is the return home of the Greeks including Agememnon and Menelaus and Telegony is about Odysseus finally getting home to Ithaca and his death. We only know the details of these because other sources mention them and because the full text is lost they were absorbed into Illiad.
    If Big Finish wanted they could do the whole Cycle while adding on to the missing portions.

    I'd be interested in hearing what Big Finish could do with Oscar Wilde's Salome.

    Has 1001 Nights been suggested? There's practically a whole new range in there alone though because of how many nights some take they'd have to be condensed or multiple releases would have to be done, especially the ones that are a story in a story in a story in a story.

    I haven't seen anybody suggest it but it's a good idea. Send an email for the next podcast and ask Big Finish about it.

    Just sent an email to Vortex. How do I send a question for the podcast? I couldn't find that.

    I very much recommend checking out the releases from H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. They are done more in a classic radio kind of way but that doesn't stop them from being really kind of creepy.

    Absolute agreement! Creepy and fun in a very unique presentation...and each release comes with lots of "artifacts"!

    How about Robin Hood and King Arthur audios? I know Big Finish did audios of the BBC Robin Hood series but I mean an actual take on the old Robin Hood legends. I think Medieval Fantasy overall would be a genre worth exploring for Big Finish.

    How about The Secret Garden? Or as a Christmas Special Babes in Toyland. I know it's not a book and is an operetta but it does have a story.

    What about a really good Moby Dick adapted from the original and a driven Captain Ahab?
