    I'd like to introduce a new writerly game! You take a book title, and you suggest a version of the name that "didn't quite make it."

    Some examples of classic books:

    A Farewell to Limbs
    For Whom The Bell Rings
    The Once and Scheduled King

    From modern fantasy/scf-fi...

    The Roller of Time
    The Name of the Breeze
    A Game of Recliners

    1- I got Killed by my Crazy Neighbor.

    2- Short-sighted Orphan goes to Supernatural School.

    3- Little Shiny Thing causes loads of Trouble.

    Too easy??
