Remember Me When I'm Gone, by Larry King. Doubleday. 213 pages. $19.95. This is one of those trick books that seem all too easy (Why didn't I do that?), but work well because both the idea and the implementation are sound. King, of course, has interviewed more people that most cemeteries could contain. Encouraged by his agent, he confronted an array of notables with the question "How would you like to be remembered after your death?" More than 300 responses are published here, and are delightful, touching or in some cases revealingly absurd.

Because, for one brief, confusing moment, Dan Quayle spoke from his heart and not from his briefing papers, he is now undergoing a barrage of the thing that clings to him like a second skin: the ridicule of most of a nation."

Chris Myers didn't have to be asked twice when the poobahs at ESPN gave him the chance to take over the nightly "Up Close" interview show from Roy Firestone. It just seemed like the logical thing to do."I've always wanted to do a sports-talk interview show. I've always been a fanatic of talk shows. I was such a big fan of Johnny Carson growing up and I used to listen to Larry King when my family lived in South Florida. I just didn't think a show like this would become available," said Myers.

Call it the ultimate in underground humor. For a book published earlier this year, television personality Larry King posed an unusual question to well-known public figures and celebrities: "How would you like to be remembered after your death?" More than 300 people responded to his query, providing King with the material for Remember Me When I'm Gone: The Rich and Famous Write Their Own Epitaphs and Obituaries. Last words range from actor Stacy Keach's lighthearted verse, "Here lies Stacy Keach/A Georgia peach/Lived at the beach/Now out of reach," to comedian Howie Mandell's last laugh, "Is It Me or Is it Dark In Here?"

On The Weekend Watch:A HEAP OF HAUNTINGS -- What do you bet will be the leading costume for trick-or-treaters on Halloween next week? It has to be Bart Simpson, or others from his cartoon brood. Thus it's appropriate that tonight's episode of "The Simpsons" (at 8, Channel 45) appears to be the first of an assortment of eerieseries tie-ins to the horror holiday in coming days. Tales of a haunted house scare Bart and Lisa, and there's even a recital of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven."UNWELCOME CHOICES -- The networks have done it again.

America's fascination with the O. J. Simpson trial continues, as Christopher Darden (who's also scheduled to appear later this week on "Geraldo!") takes the case for the prosecution to CNN. With so many legal experts questioning the prosecution's strategy in recent months, it could be interesting to hear what he has to say."The Sentinel" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) Lots of things go boom (to great effect) in this series about a Washington-state police officer with heightened senses that make him one mean crime-fighting machine.
