So, I recently finished Nick Cole's The Old Man and the Wasteland, which is a well written pastiche of Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea crossed with the Wasteland Fallout series of videogames.

This made me realize just what a fertile ground such mashups are. Some of the more punny possibilities include


Of Mice and Mass Effect

Call of the Duty of the Wild

The Super Brothers Karamazov

Warcraft and Peace

To Killer Instinct a Mockingbird

Great Gatsby Theft Auto

The Red Dead Letter

The Prince of Persia and the Pauper? I dunno, given how the first game was Totally Not Aladdin, Honest, that seems like there would be little change to the story other than the addition of spike traps and sword fighting.

You know what? I'm fine with that, everything is improved by spike traps and sword fighting.

I get the reasoning for the name, but The Prisoner of Gannandorf would probably be a better title.

Presumably Bram Stoker's version will include a real estate deal subplot.
