'Zencore!' is really the launch of the Megazanthus Press (with the background of Nemonymous in past years where exactly 100 original stories from new and old writers have so far been published and paid for).
My selling-point is that the Press does not depend on anything but the continued life in my body! I am 59, retired, financially self-sufficient and reasonably healthy. But that does also mean that I would like at least to break even with the Megazanthus books.


=============
You may be interested in knowing that 'megazanthus' is a word I invented in 2003 as a hybrid of 'magazine' and 'anthology' coupled with below...

Me-gaza-nth-us

Me: the cult of 'me' ... as denied by Nemo

Gaza: Eyeless In ...(as in Aldous Huxley) ... I-less?

nth: to the nth degree - symbolic of infinity

Us: the Jungian archetype of ourness and timelessness and collaboration and shared universes


"The nemo is an evolutionary force, as necessary as the ego. The ego is certainty, what I am; the nemo is potentiality, what I am not. But instead of utilizing the nemo as we would utilize any other force, we allow ourselves to be terrified by it, as primitive man was terrified by lightning. We run screaming from this mysterious shape in the middle of our town, even though the real terror is not in itself, but in our terror at it."
-- John Fowles (from 'The Necessity of Nemo' in 'The Aristos' 1964)
