SF author group blog Electric Velocipede reports about the development of a new anthology called Logorrhea: Good Words Make Good Stories. It’s based on words that have won spelling bees. (Bzz!)
My first thought is: Boy, are they running out of ideas for original anthology theme, or what? What’s next? Robotic monkeys?
Then I thought: Why not? Hal Duncan’s entry, “The Chiaroscurist“, it turns out, is very good. (And worth 2 points, thank you!) They’ve lined up some other fine authors in addition to Hal Duncan, including Daniel Abraham, Paolo Bacigalupi, Alex Irvine, Jay Lake, Kelly Link, Michael Moorcock, Tim Pratt, Lucius Shepard, Jeff VanderMeer, Liz Williams and more.
