About the Author
Fresh from the military and back in upstate New York after a 6-month odyssey on The Appalachian Trail, Düg bounced around various jobs until he eventually found himself driving a box truck for a local Floral Wholesaler. This afforded him many long hours late at night to sit and contemplate. Being a literate sort, he also read a lot and this helped, though of course not while driving. Nevertheless, from this strange confluence was born The Fictionary!
The first edition of The Fictionary was a small spiral bound book printed by hand at a 24-hour Kinko's one night in early 01999. Only one or two copies remain. The second edition, more than tripling in size, was published in 02005 and is still in print through iUniverse.
Düg Fresh is also the author of A Thousand and One Appalachian Tales, an account of his journey along the A.T. and through the heart of Chapel Perilous. He writes Haiku and continues to explore Wordspace as time and inspiration permit. His next project is to publish a few children's stories he's written.
Düg is also involved in the International Peace Trail Project. This envisions a global infrastructure linking together much of Earth's highest terrain and wilderness areas into a massive World Wide Parks and Trails System. The main corridor of this system would be The International Peace Trail. The goal of the Peace Trail Project is to help protect and restore Earth's dwindling natural resources and endangered wildlife habitats while promoting international unity, cooperation, and world peace.

Abacchus: 1.) A device for counting past ten when intoxicated, preferably by wine, women and song. 2.) The world's first drinkable computer designed to bring an end to worry and care.
only because it was first. Obviously a combination of abacus and Bacchus, it makes a great word and the definition is wonderful. Picking another was a problem because they are all good. I chose this one because he used it as a heading for the first section in another of his books:
Beforeward: 1.) A proem to a preface, an exordium to an overture. 2.) A prelude to a prolegomenon. 3.) A preliminary discourse that leads to the prologue, sometimes by way of the epilogue
Finally, this one caught my eye for no real reason:
Humidifinder: A device used to locate water vapor.
This is a book that you'll be looking at for years.
