Can anyone help in entitling NEMONYMOUS SEVEN which will be a book anthology, and knowing the background of previous Nemonymous issues, including The Missing Sixth? Details at Nemonymous site and Wikipedia.
Other grist to the mill:
Chasing The Noumenon
Abutting The If
The Ominous Imagination
Parthenogenesis / Megazanthus
More previous ‘inventions’ by dfl: http://www.weirdmonger.com
Magic Realism / Magic Fiction

Although you need not know anything about Nemonymous except hearsay to offer a suggestion. Your suggested title can choose to bear reference to the above, or not, as you wish.

Any title I use, or feedback that helps me to create an overall title for the anthology, will be rewarded with the legendary DFL generosity!

Please place your suggestions here.

The title can go before or after 'Nemonymous Seven' and there can also be a long or short subtitle people may be able to suggest, too?

For example, there were two subtitles of WEIRDMONGER:
THE NEMONICON
SYNCHRONISED SHARDS OF RANDOM TRUTH AND FICTION.

How about:

Nothing is True

Clan Against Concept

Your eyes are slow . . . mine . . . no!

Stories for Macrominds

Technical alarms in fiction

. . . And by the third story I began to tremble.

That's the first time I've knowingly seen the word Innominatus! Quite a revelation. As it seems a common term (botanical?) from Google.

You may like to keep in mind that (this time round) all authors' names will be shown in a random order at the back of the book.

Still considering submissions.

Ehrm...Des...I simply checked the thesaurus of my electronic dictionary for a synonym to 'anonymous', and it gave this:

in·nom·i·nate [i nómmənət]
adj
1. nameless: without a name (formal)
2. unnamed: anonymous (literary)


[Mid-17th century. From late Latin innominatus , from in- “not” + nominatus (see nominate).]

And I liked 'innominatus' much better than 'innominate', so in the spirit of the megazanthus I decided to turn it into Scriptus Innominatus.

I didn't google it afterwards...

"Scriptus Innominatus" as a unit is indeed not found by Google.

Final decision:

ZENCORE: NEMON7MOUS
The Cloacal Chronicles in Scriptus Innominatus



Rewards of ZENCORE itself when printed to Gary Fry, Jetse de Vries and Scott Kelly

And thanks to all 3 (and to me for the Cloacal Chronicles bit)!
And thanks to others who tried.

You will see that the cover bears Jetse's Scriptus Innominatus suggestion from above:

Thanks Jetse, and thanks Scott Kelly, for the Zencore suggestion.
