Andrew Liles - The Maleficent Monster And Other Macabre Stories
It may be a little vainglorious to put one of my own LPs in the list, but it was a personal triumph and honour to have the legendary horror illustrator Graham Humphreys paint me an album cover.

It's a family portrait of sorts. It's got me in there holding my own decapitated heads, the wife bursting out of my stomach in an Evil Dead fashion, along with Otto, our cat, who is also enjoying wading through my guts. If the house was on fire, after the cat and the wife, I would save this.
