Over 100 images are included in this book about "Art, Beatniks, Sex, Hippies, Art Festivals, Mind Expansion and Mortality". Tempus Fugitive is Dion's honest, humorous, and personal history of the American counter-culture of the 20th century, as he experienced, observed and documented it.
About the book, Dion says, "Tempus Fugitive is an historical memoir of mid-20th Century American culture and counter-culture, with emphasis on art, psychology, philosophy, and how the pursuit of expanded consciousness via chemistry, relative to these and other subjects, had many and often mortal, unforeseen consequences. All of this high-falutin' intent is carried in narrative by real stories about real people."

About his other manuscripts, Dion says, "My second and third books are satires of Art festivals written a la Catch-22. A novel titled The Elephant is a pastiche written as I sat in my chair at Sawdust during the summer of 2014, and Mosaic is a collection of profiles of Bohemian characters from mid-century Laguna Canyon. The fourth book, Collision, is a history of the collision between the native Acjachemem Indians of the San Juan Capistrano area with the Spanish, told from the Indian point-of-view. I'm closing out my fifth book now, Angling Tales, which is a collection of true short stories about fishing."
