it was amazing
Recommended for: Anyone who loves words
Read in January, 1986

Loved this dictionary (of sorts)! Though I now wish I had a "real" dictionary that defined the words I don't I could really enjoy Ambrose Bierce's evil-in-a-good-way re-definitions. All in good time, I guess....

Quotes Nesie Liked

Ambrose Bierce
Redemption, n. Deliverance of sinners from the penalty of their sin through their murder of the deity against whom they sinned. The doctrine of Redemption is the fundamental mystery of our holy religions, and whoso believeth in it shall not perish, but have everlasting life in which to try to understand it.”
Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil's Dictionary
