I think a proper Black repertoire in the Classical Sicilian (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Nc6) is the biggest current gap in the market. This should cover not just the Rauzer (6.Bg5), which is well served so long as you like Kozul's interpretation of the position, but also the Sozin (6.Bc4) and the various alternatives (6.Be2, 6.Be3, 6.f3, 6.f4, 6.g3 ....). I know Black is supposed to be under some pressure theoretically in certain lines, but several 2600+ GMs play it and don't get beaten up.

While the author is about it, a decent reply to the Moscow or Rossolimo (depending on whether we play 2...d6 or 2...Nc6) would also be welcomed.

Unboring the French Exchange, written from Black's perspective for club players like me.

Also Play the Dutch Rubinstein Variation, written for both sides. Content: 1.d4 f5 2.c4 Nf6 3.Nc3 and White will not play g2-g3,

Has the old 3...dxe4 ever proven as leading to a clear White advantage?

Yes, by GM Alexander Graf in his book on the BDG.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

As to the last of those, Wisnewski's "Play 1...Nc6" is pretty good – though note than after 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 he only gives 3...e6.

What are a few opening books that you would like to see published, for whatever reason (e.g. you play a particular opening or variation, and you'd love another book on that, or there isn't yet a  - good? - book on that particular line or defense)?

For example, among others I'd like to see a book on a few dangerous but clearly unsound gambits for blitz or bullet chess - i.e the Halloween Gambit and similar - and a book on strategies about how to beat the Hippopotamus opening or defense... I also think that a book on the Nimzowitsch Defense vs 1.e4, with emphasis on its old main line (1.e4 Nc6 2.d4 d5) is in some need. I remember a book by Myers in the 1980s, but it is really hard to find now.
