Here are the winners of the free copies of Soulsmith on audio (in the US) that my team of elite hidden gnomes selected. I've included their words and the reason they were selected.
Ashley: "Stelliferous." Not only is this a nice, obscure, cool-sounding word, but everybody likes stars!
Jeff: "Fred." They thought picking a name was clever, and this was a funny name to pick. Well played.
Eric: "Wightboi." We saw what you did there, Eric.
Gavin: "Aspirant." They didn't give me a reason for this one, Gavin, so I think they just liked the cut of your jib.
Darren: "Defenestration." Because this is how I punish my hidden gnomes when they fail me.
Ann R: "Defenestration." It's still a good word.
Jeff2: "Word." Nicely done, Jeff the Second.
Meng: "Daydream." Because of the way you phrased your reasoning: "Isn't this how books begin? A little daydream that dared to try."
Dave: "Syllepsis." That's a cool word.
John Herring: "Chork." For the funniest word on this list.
Jack: "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." We all know why.
Mark: "Methylchloroisothiazolinone." Because we couldn't pronounce it, so we figured we might as well give it a prize.
Matt: "Monosyllabic." Because it's not.
The Last Reader: "Imperitum." Wins the "most likely to be used in a mystic incantation" award.
sophie: "Hangry." Because we all get that way sometimes.
"Then he felt a reaction from his cores."
