Someone has written to me with these thoughts:
In re: Nemonymous 6 and the plight of the completist, this is easy. Just tell everyone to go to their local stationary shop and, working with great care, to select and purchase the notebook that most appeals to them. This should not be undertaken lightly - it may involve trawling round several emporia to find just the right combination of cover colour, dimensions, page texture, design, logo etc. Then they take this home and, in a small ceremony of their own devising, declare it to be their copy of Nemonymous 6.
They then add it to the previous 5 in their collection while awaiting issue 7 next year.
There is, however, a major point of decision still to be approached. The proud owner may opt to:
1) Leave the issue entirely blank as it came from the shop or
2) Actually create their own Nemonymous by filling its pages with suitable tales of their own devising.
I must point out, however, that if option 2 is selected, it is vital that the collector, at some level, does not know who the tales are by. Thus this option will give the chooser the rare and valuable chance to actually write while in a state of autoanonymity. What an exquisite opportunity!

Bearing in mind its past themes and actual 'happenings' within its pages over the years, I suppose Nemonymous is the only on-going publication with the hinterland, authority, credentials, chutzpah, excuse, convincement & believability to have a blank (or invisible) edition to fill a necessary hiatus in its schedule! However, to request reviews of Nemo Six (as I do now) may be pushing it a bit - but any reviews I receive will be posted.
The submission guidelines for the non-blank Nemo Seven will be posted in November this year.

Call myself a writer! A much better word - to replace 'convincement' and 'believablity' above - is 'plausibility'.

Award for non-existence? Indeed, as many of you already seem to realise, the non-existent issue of Nemonymous Six (2006) thoughtfully described by someone here:
is eligible for anything that any other 2006 publication is eligible for.
Just a reminder.
This issue depicts the nothingness of death. This publication truly has no gods. Horror Uncluttered.
PS: Nemonymous Seven (Zencore!) is due to be published as a physical book before the end of June 2007.
