The thread for the book Weirdmonger Nemonicon is now under that title, not here.

"Therefore we put you under a geas: depart without delay from the Cavern of the Archetypes, and seek out the slimy gulf in which Abhoth, father and mother of all cosmic uncleanness eternally carries on Its repugnant fission. We consider that you are fit only for Abhoth, which will perhaps mistake you for one of Its own progeny and devour you in accordance with the custom It follows."
from 'The Seven Geases' by Clark Ashton Smith

Well, the 64 parts do sort of blend into a novel format!

Has anyone seen the back cover of my 'Weirdmonger' book? It's absolutely incredible. (I just realised that only the small percentage of the world's population who have seen the book would know what the back cover is like!)

I heard recently that someone had left 'Weirdmonger' in a will to their children so that they could finish reading it on his behalf.
;-)

Meanwhile, out of the hundreds of stories that were submitted to NEMONYMOUS FIVE up to 5 April 2005, I show below the titles of the stories I have kept for further consideration. I have received several more since that date. I can safely say that from amongst the stories I have already received and kept for further consideration, I shall be publishing a wonderful wonderful new NEMONYMOUS. No doubt about that. But please do prove me wrong: because the final issue is still as fluid as the sweetest and sourest nectar. You have until 30 April to make your mark on the already settling abeyance of literary and genre gold. That's when the submission guidelines (45 per story) expires as shown here: http://www.nemonymous.com

If, say, a film company wanted to use the word 'Weirdmonger' for a film title (because it would be a great title, wouldn't it!?), will they need to ask my permission as I have the first recorded use of that word in *1988* (and all the countless Google hits for that word today concern my work and nothing else)??

(Likewise 'nemonymous' that I coined in 2001 and I checked at that time with Google and there were no hits at all for that word, but now, today, there are hundreds connected with my mag!)

I have updated my websites.

www.weirdmonger.com now relates to Weirdmonger and www.nemonymous.com to Nemonymous !! Quite startling really. ;-)

If there are any inadvertently dead links, mistakes on my part or examples of gaucheness, I'd be grateful to hear from you.

At any time, anyone who either

OR
(b) successfully orders a copy of WEIRDMONGER from their local library

will be eligible to receive a free copy of the increasingly incredulous-reactive NEMONYMOUS FIVE!

(If (a) is to be anonymous, please provide a copy before it is posted, so that your identity is known.)

The Apocryfan's episodes 20, 21 and 22 now posted.
Excerpt from this morning's ep 22:
"It was simply, however, a ghost ship. The Flying Dutchman becalmed upon its own self-created Sargasso Sea."
