14 Years of Loyal Servicing (too close to reality?)
Stardusting (The misdemeanor variant of Starbucking)
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

Current game is a tougher one:  Drop one letter from book title.

:hmm:

The Huger Games

Mob Dick

A Handy Illustrated Guide to Owling

The Black Tar Passes

Dagon Drums

Hen Worlds Collide

Reamsnake

A Wrinkle in Tim

Return of the Kin

Oliver Twit

Geat Expectations
(alternate title for Beowful)

We Have Always Lived in the Caste

Do Quixote

Madame Ovary

One Hundred Ears of Solitude
  (novel about living in the middle of Nebraska)

The Sound and the Fur

To The Lighthose

On The Rod

The Gapes of Wrath

Turn of the Crew
  (alternately, Urn of the Screw)

Naive Son

Mr Dalloway

Catch-2

Ride and Prejudice

Brave New Word
  (Rave New World?)

Things All Apart

All The King's Me

The All of the Wild

The Goo Soldier

Alone Dies

The Ale of Genji
  (also, The Canterbury Ales)

Lice's Adventures in Wonderland

The Law of the Conciliator

Laughterhouse-Five

The Win in the Willows

Gone With The Win

Omen in Love

Son of Solomon

The C#nt of Monte Cristo

The Hart is a Lonely Hunter

Candid

Claudius

The Old Ma and the Sea

The Big Seep

Paradise Lot

Tess of the Ubervilles

The Naked and the Dad

Hoards End

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Net



Only really work aloud:

Rime and Punishment

Finnegans Ake



Time easily becomes Tim, and Star becomes Tar, and King becomes Kin, and Wind becomes Win.  Those are almost too easy.

The Fondling is from Georgette Heyer's The Foundling, and a bunch of Heyer's books work well for this, for some reason.  I like:

Black Sheep  ==>  Back Sheep
Spanish Bride  ==>  Spanish Ride
Bath Tangle  ==>  Bat Tangle
  (or Bath Angle)
