Making the Alphabet Dance: Recreational Wordplay
by Ross Eckler
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312140320, Hardcover)This is the most mesmerizing book on wordplay to come along in years. Ross Eckler examines such eternal logological favorites as anagrams, palindromes, and word squares, as well as words that play in other ways. Here are words with all letters in alphabetical order, novels written without the letter "e," and dozens of ways to transform one word into another. Take "heathery," for example. How many times can you delete one letter and have a new word remaining? Or consider "add." What happens when you shift each letter one place down the alphabet? How about eight places? If you love words, this masterpiece is irresistible.
