Now, stuck in the After, Clayton, with some guidance, must come to grips with what comes after life.

The Dictionary Game is a living thing. An experience. An afternoon at your favorite coffee shop with a fresh brew, an over-sized dictionary, and a need to create something. It was that experience and a game played over 15 years that led to the collection of writing contained in this book.
Meet Mike Hornyak, author of the Dictionary Game and talented creative with a passion for writing. Mike did not create the idea of The Game, but he has spent years playing and some of the best words he was given have ended up in this collection.
