A Fun Book for Spellers

We found this today and we're intrigued. It's a book of short stories, each one based on a winning word from the Scripps National Spelling Bee:

“Good words make good stories,” declares the cover of Logorrhea (Spectra, $13, softcover). This collection of 21 stories is edited by John Kilma — who also contributes a story and introduction. Each of the stories is titled with and expands on the theme of a word, and not just any word either. Each title word is one of the winning words from the Scripps National Spelling Bee. They are, for the most part, fantasy stories, the genre that used to be science fiction but changed when the real world got more outrageous than anything a science writer could dream up.
