Book Overview

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.
