Word Ways


Willard Espy has done it again! Another Almanac of Words at Play copies the successful format of his classic An Almanac of Words at Play, an anthology of wordplay from a wide variety of books, newspapers and magazines, enlivened by Espy's witty poetry. It is a dazzling feast of verbal legedemain that deserves to be on the shelf of every Word Ways reader. I know of no better way for Word Ways readers to reach a large audience than to catch Espy's eye, and many did so. In the list below, 'quoted' means that the author obtained the item from some other published source.
