Default Drop a Letter


O.K. it's a silly game, but then aren't they all? Take a famous book and remove one letter from the title, then tell us what it's all about.

Here's a few to start with.

Lord of The Rigs - An evil trucker baron invests part of his soul in the rig that controls all other rigs.
Return of The Naive - An unsophisticated person returns to their home town with tragic consequences.
One with the Wind - How the South was destroyed by flatulence.
