Given a word, find a smaller word within it; remove that word, leaving behind another word. You may have to rearrange letters to get the word you remove, but no more anagramming will be needed for word left behind. See example in Question 1.

Falling Trees by Tim Burr

Some people have names which sound suspiciously similar to actual words. This concept has been used for wordplay for years, and certainly isn't a new idea. Can you match these name puns with the types of books they could write?
