Literature-Theme Parties:

• William Shakespeare Party: Your guests keep slipping dirty jokes into epic soliloquies about the meanings of their lives. Both sets of identical twins you've invited arrive disguised as the opposite sex for incredibly tenuous reasons. Everyone is in love with everybody else, so you play matchmaker; by the evening's end you've abjured your vodka and buried it certain fathoms under the earth. A cavalcade of Scottish kings haunts your sleep, regardless.

• Stanislaw Lem Party: A few hours into your party, you are compelled to invent the Machine That Can Mix Any Drink Beginning with the Letter V to prove a philosophical point. Robot space pirates steal it. You learn a valuable moral lesson. Everyone has a pun for a name.

• Herman Melville Party: The catering firm would prefer not to. You seek obsessive revenge through actions pregnant with Christian imagery. Everyone agrees your party blows.

• Umberto Eco Party: The booze goes missing halfway through the party. You proceed to investigate, but find out that by now all your witnesses are so unbelievably drunk they could just as well be speaking Latin. Everyone has strong feelings about God and Aristotle. To escape their debate, you have a casual sexual encounter with someone, but come next morning, you simply cannot remember their name. You're only able to find your underwear through contextual clues.

• H.G. Wells Party: Your party takes place at your private island, where you have retreated with 1,800 cases of Belgian beer to discover the extreme limit to the plasticity of the human liver. The guests are all total animals. By the end of the day, you're convinced you're invisible.
