Could people who want to post here on the Nemonymous threads anonymously but still want to be considered for the various prizes etc, could they please register their nemonyms with me at bfitzworth@yahoo.co.uk

There are many competitions to come.

A free Nemo5 to the person who comes back to this thread by July 21 2005 with the most story titles from this contents list:
http://www.augusthog.esmartguy.com/
where the story text of each title includes a number, like 'one', 'two', 'three' and so forth, but only where each of the story texts contains a *different* number. For example, only one title with text containing the word 'three' would count.
It's easy to find at least one title, and if you are the only one to enter the competition and you only have one title to offer, then you'll win.

Not in the title of the story, David, but the "story text of each title".

But as David misunderstood, I'll let him have a copy of Nemo 5. Please remind me at bfitzworth@yahoo.co.uk in a week or so.
Now, no reason for anyone else to misundersand. On with the competition.

They are all acceptable, Brent, except 4' 33" as the 33 is not in the text of the story.

We'll have to wait till 21 July, to see if you've won. Good effort!

Of course, nobody (from now on) can use any of the same answers as you! (A general new rule that no answer can be repeated from previous entries! But there must be loads of stories with numbers in.)

My decision is final! :-)

Actually, 33 presents itself when you stare at the text of 4'33" for approximately 33 seconds. It's amazing!

;)

Only one bite at the cherry for each entrant, I'm afraid, Brent. (Thanks for pointing out your H&S duplication, however!)

Brent Z won that competition for Nemo 5. And as promised David Eland won a consolation prize of Nemo 5!

For the future, the only way to receive a free copy of the Nemonymous 5 anthology is to write an Amazon review (good, bad or indifferent) of the 'Weirdmonger' book. Otherwise details on how to receive it is on www.nemonymous.com - and if I say so myself (and the very few people who have already received it agree) its look is quite astonishing!
