#6 by Alice Munro must be
Hateship, Friendship, Loveship, Courtship, Marriage

I haven't read it but it's on my radar.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

What a fun idea! Kudos to you for this one.

#9 is Ladies and Gentlemen, the Bible!

1 must be Are you there God? It's me, Margaret.

There should be a comma in the first sentence, though. Maybe I'm wrong. Hmmmm.

Megan: I knew you'd have fun with this one. Do you mean, "Are you there, God?" Personally, I'd add one in the Douglas Coupland title: "Hey, Nostradamus!"

#5 - 'Salem's Lot

John Mutford said...

You are all correct! The only one left is #7.

I think it's got to be Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus (sp?) but I'm not sure about the punctuation.

Cool game!
