Check out this Wikipedia entry on some serious word play. A favorite of mine, Robert Jordan gets a nod, but some of these put even him to shame.

The Story of the Vivian Girls, a nine-million-word novel by outsider artist Henry Darger has never been published but continues to generate considerable attention from art critics and the media.

Christ! 50 thousand words doesn't seem like much, now.

I missed the longest.

1 Marienbad My Love by Mark Leach 17 million words English 39 Volumes

Whoa.
17 million words. Who'd have time to read it?
The thought of editing a seventeen-million-word book makes me cringe.
I bet it makes for a great paperweight...if you can find a desk sturdy enough to support such a tome.
Talk about someone who has too much time on their hands. !7 million words in thirty days, whew! That would take me a decade or two to write.
I seriously doubt it was done in 30 days. If it were, that would be miraculous!
