This story appeared in May 2002 in an issue of Nemonymous and has since been greatly acclaimed. It also received this accolade:

The printed story itself had a website address that actually worked which eventually led to this link:
http://www.members.tripod.com/scott_warrick/
As far as I know, the story remains anonymously written, by choice of the author.

In recent days, I've started reading THE BOOK OF ILLUSIONS by Paul Auster. The Escobada story was submitted to me significantly before its publication date in 2002 and Auster's book also published in 2002.
The two pieces are merely kindred spirits - no more.
Quite differently works of genius. Masterpieces, both.
Does anyone believe - like I do - that there are passing 'muses' that writers can temporarily tap into and produce works that have similar roots but quite dissimilar originality?

Ahh, so you have perhaps unintentionally narrowed the field of possible candidates for the authorship of Vanishing Life...

No longer can it be anyone in the world. The author now exists within the more limited set of (The World - Paul Auster).

5 billion or so more slip-ups like that and the author will be revealed in all of his or her glory.

Yes, Eric - but you know you didn't write it and everyone else reading this Board (except possibly one amongst the millions reading it) know they didn't write it. So, this cuts it down dramatically. des

I've just discovered that the Escobada site at:
http://www.members.tripod.com/scott_warrick/
has been updated - and was changed on the very date I started this thread on Night Shades (29/11/03)!!

As as separate point, regarding Emanuel Escanco (who I assume to be a different person from Escobada), I wrote to the email address at the Full Moon site at:
http://www.domal.ic24.net/fmdrm.htm
(by which I was reminded I was once interviewed by a certain Emmanuel Escanco in 1989) but have received no reply as yet.

I've replaced labour-of-love with labour of misspent love on the website:
www.nemonymous.com

Hey, please tell others they can now easily buy some of the early anthologies -- with the many famous nemonymous stories (like the one mentioned in the heading) intact -- here:

And then tell me why I do all this!
