I always preferred the TitleAuthor game instead, the crowning glory of which is:

The Sheep Look Up John Brunner.

The Roads Must Roll Robert Heinlein. (Maybe he put on a lot of weight?)

Water is for Washing Robert Heinlein.

Hey, we brought this around into a semblance of your original concept. :D

This game is called The Man Who Melted Jack Dann, and here is how it is played.

Quoting some examples from that site:
The Kraken Wakes John Wyndham
Probe Carole Nelson Douglas
The Wounded Land Stephen R. Donaldson
Fire Alan Rodgers
Harlan Ellison's Watching Harlan Ellison
The Machine Stops E. M. Forster
I Will Fear No Evil Robert A. Heinlein
Paradise Lost John Milton
You're Another Damon Knight
The Ringworld Engineers Larry Niven


etc., etc.
