About this site

Where Ghostwords Dwell is dedicated to discarded text, forgotten words and the memory of dead manuscripts.

Nous nous souvenons de ce qui ne doit pas être oublié

Diwa at Salita


Oku iwe ati oro, eyi t’aa gbabe, ati eyi to se alaisi

How to read this blog:

We all love to have fun and playing with words is one of the most enjoyable things there is.

Taking inspiration from the surrealist game, The Exquisite Corpse, Where Ghost Words Dwell, can be read as blog entries. Are these entries part of a time traveler’s log, scraps found by alien archeologists or intermittent transmissions from places invisible to the human eye?

You decide.

The entries carry no author names and are extracts from works that have been published or are on their way to being published. They could also be alternate versions that ended up on the editing floor. To find out who the author is or what work the extracts are from, click on the highlighted links. Who knows, you may find a new favorite writer or a work you haven’t yet read.

In any case, we hope you will enjoy reading these ghostwords.
