Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For most of us, these prizewinning spelling bee words would be difficult to pronounce, let alone spell. We asked twenty-one of todays 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. Theres only one word for such an irresistible anthology: Logorrhea

Synopsis:

This utterly original anthology of fantastical short stories based on beguiling spelling bee words arrives just in time for the 2007 Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Since then John has worked in publishing, computer programming, and—since completing his Master's degree in Library and Information Science in December 2005—librarianship. He currently works as the young adult librarian and systems administrator at his local library. Outside of work, he edits the science fiction zine, Electric Velocipede.

Jennifer Starkman, August 4, 2012 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
Logorrhea is a clever and unexpected collection of stories sure to appeal to any word lover out there. Challenged with writing stories inspired by Scripps Spelling Bee-winning words--from "pococurante" to "psoriasis"--each of the authors John Klima has gathered here have risen to that challenge in incredibly creative and inspired ways. Some of the stories are straightforwardly modern, others reminiscent of folktales, and every one of them entertains.
