It has suddenly struck me that this anthology (collection):
WE ARE FOR THE DARK containing six stories (all shown as written by Robert Aickman and Elizabeth Jane Howard ) - (my copy Mayflower Dell 1965) - is the only forerunner of 'Nemonymous' that I can think of, as the stories are not allocated in print to a particular author. We do now know that each story is written by just one of Aickman or Howard and which story is whose, but we do not know this if we only depend on the book itself:
The Insufficient Answer
Three Miles Up (a masterpiece! - des)

Des, what system are you using for your “systematic re-reading” of Aickman? It must not be chronological or else you would’ve read “The Insufficient Answer” before “My Poor Friend.” Just curious.

Systematic in the sense I'm reading a series of complete books.
I started with 'Powers of Darkness' (which contains 'My Poor Friend'), then 'Dark Entries', then 'We Are For Dark (containing 'The Insufficient Answer'): currently reading alternately the stories in 'Cold Hand In Mine' and 'Tales of Love and Death', to be followed by 'Intrusions', then finally the Mandarin books: 'The Wine-Dark Sea' and 'The Unsettled Dust'.
