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"
