He is the creator of The Inky Fool, a blog about words, phrases, grammar, rhetoric, and prose. He has contributed to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Huffington Post. He lives in the UK.
Praise for The Horologicon "This is not a book to be gulped down at a sitting, but gently masticated to be savored in small bites...[Forsyth's] irreverent commentary on the history of the terms and when to use them is worth reading...Every page contains a new jewel for logophiles and verbivores everywhere."--Publishers Weekly "Forsyth's fascinating entries employ erudite humor and playful historical anecdotes to make these dusty old words sound fresh again. In doing so, he succeeds in creating a book to be not just browsed but absorbed. Get ready to be impressed and entertained."--Library Journal Praise for The Etymologicon "The Facebook of books...Before you know it, you've been reading for an hour."--The Chicago Tribune "A breezy, amusing stroll through the uncommon histories of some common English words...Snack-food style blends with health-food substance for a most satisfying meal."--Kirkus Reviews "The stocking filler of the season...How else to describe a book that explains the connection between Dom Perignon and Mein Kampf."--Robert McCrum, The Observer
