Here's how it's played: I will go first. the person who goes first will pick two authors, and the next person titles a hypothetical collaboration between these two authors.
Examples from prior games:
Kerouac + Poe = Suffering is Hip
Lovecraft + Miller = The Tropic of Azathoth
Plath + Powter = STOP THE BELL JAR!
Do read ALL the entries before you take a turn at the game, gentle reader: the bottommost entry should contain the most recent pair of authors.
To kick off, then:
I select Herman Melville and Chuck Palaniuk (While everyone knows Melville, Palaniuk wrote Fight Club, among others).
Now you, come up with a title for the collaboration, and then pick a pair of authors for the next player to choose.
