Conley’s other dictionary is of one-letter words. Here he cites words and phrases from around the world and a vast assortment of periods and civilizations that are or ever have been used by shamans, conjurers, illusionists, and others. Among the aspects of a term he discusses are mystique, facts, meanings, origin, common magician applications, variations and incantations, and appearance in literature. He traces many of the words to popular television programs, children’s books, and computer games. The entries include abracadabra, bibbidy-bobbidy-boo, flagrate, ngh-hlu-khy-wig, saleh, and Zabba.
