First, I agree with DMong's post.

For breeding corn snakes, you would want to buy Kathy Love's Corn snakes: a comprehensive owner's guide and Pritzel's The cornsnake morph guide.

For breeding California king snakes, you would want to buy Perlowin's The common kingsnake. Markel's Kingsnakes and milk snakes is also good, I believe. I am not aware of a guide to king snake morphs. I get most of my information on them from breeders' web sites.

Understanding morphs requires understanding genetics. Pritzel's Genetics for Herpers is good, as is Schaum's Introduction to Genetics, by Elron and Stansfield. Neither is particularly expensive. Miller's A survey of genetics is free for downloading from http://www.ringneckdove.com. Most of the genetics web pages written by herpers more or less garble the genetics.

By the way, none of these sources will tell you how to hybridize corn snakes and king snakes. There is danger to the corn snake in such an endeavor because California kings eat other snakes (among other things).
