I know the Soney doesn't quite support plugboards but It kind of works.
Sonys fully support plugboards since 0.7.23.

You don't say whether you want the series information before or after the title. As your original example was 'before', I will assume that. You don't say whether you want one-word series names to be treated differently, so I will ignore them.

Create a plugboard
Format: device_db
Device: PRS505
Source template: {series:re(([^\s])[^\s]+(\s|$),\1)}{series_index:0<2s| - | - }{title}
Destination: Title

This would produce for your example of a few posts back:

Series: Meg Langslow Mysteries
Series index:3
Title: Revenge of the Wrought-Iron Flamingos

Title on Sony: MLM - 03 - Revenge of the Wrought-Iron Flamingos
