Product description

For most of us, these prizewinning spelling bee words would be difficult to pronounce, let alone spell. We asked twenty-one of today's most talented and inventive writers to go even further and pen an original tale inspired by one of dozens of obscure and fascinating championship words. The result is Logorrhea-a veritable dictionary of the weird, the fantastic, the haunting, and the "indefinable" that will have you spellbound from the very first page. There's only one word for such an irresistible anthology: Logorrhea

Review quote

" This book is a logophile's dream-- a left-field collection of stories inspired by winning words from the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Anyone who has ever spent an hour or two happily browsing the pages of a dictionary will find something to love here." -- Kevin Brockmeier, author of "A Brief History of the Dead "" Delightful.... A treat for dictionary hounds and vocabulary-challenged word lovers everywhere." -- "Booklist"
