Strange and Unusual Dictonaries

On a complete, whole person.

You see, the problem with this completed person, this O, that both people think they have reached, is that it has taken two people to make this one whole person, one supplying the female energy and one supplying the male. —James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy.>


One of the Web's best sites!" —Encyclopedia Britannica Online

"ALL LITERATE PEOPLE (hint, that includes you) need the Strange and Unusual Dictionaries" —Clark Humphrey, author of Loser: The Real Seattle Music Story

"Why not take a look at Conley's One-Letter Words Dictionary? It's crazy and useful. Isn't that what we all aspire to?" —Matt Getty, author of You Will Behave

"I'm a smart guy, but I must confess that I could not have come up with thirty-four definitions for the letter G. So thank goodness for Craig Conley, the ultimate man of letters. His 230-page joyride through the English alphabet reads like a Scrabble dictionary on steroids. Giving due deference to every building block of our language, Conley does for letters what James Merrill's Body did for words. This book provides for fascinating reading from A (To not know "A from B" is to be ignorant) to Z (A hypothetical explosive, more powerful than an A or H bomb).
