There have been some amazing reviews of Nemo 5 and at least 4 of the stories have been given a legendary status more than once - based on comments made. Nemo 5 (any Nemo) is a traditionally printed product. There is a finite number of each Nemonymous available for all times and all worlds. Many of you know their exceptional quality as products. They *will* be collectable one day. Or am I talking out of the back of my head?

A new review of Nemo Five:

I've now heard the review at:
I am really pleased with this review. Just to give one example, it includes a rave review of The Scariest Story I Know ending with the statement: "If this story doesn't win an award, there ain't no justice" and when the reviewer subsequently found out who'd written it, "his jaw dropped" with surprise.
|Posted on Sunday, May 14, 2006 - 01:08 pm: |
That last comment intrigued me.
Did his jaw drop because I spend so much time being an editor that he didn't know that I wrote fiction at all?
Or was it because he'd read other credited stories of mine and had found them lacking, and so was surprised to have liked this one?
I loved his kind words, but I was also I also curious, so I sent a note to the e-address posted with the review.

I've wondered, since I first read it, whether THE SCARIEST STORY I KNOW allows anyone to know it, ie. to report about knowing it. Perhaps the reviewer was astonished the author still managed to carry on an ostensibly professional day-to-day-life without any failsafe method coming into play to expunge the story's ability to be known by the one who first claimed to perpetrate it... and thus, in turn, releasing any readers from their duty in sharing the burden by reading it.

On the other hand (having slept on it), The Scariest story You Know may be the same story as the one I know or it may not be. All depends who reads it and from which side of the reader/writer conduit (filter working both ways?) and which story it is - for comparative judgements of scaringness to be made and the justification of awards (getting back to what the RUR review said). Let's hope we all live to tell the tale. The one in question here is The Scariest Story I Know by Scott Edelman. Brilliant.
