The first comments have come through already regarding Nemo~4 (from a
member of the Nemonymous discussion group) as follows:
***********

Congratulations on Nemo #4, Des!

Just finished reading it through my lunchbreak, and it's a beautiful
thing. Flicking through, the tales that nestled most closely against
my brain:

EMBRACE - a trad horror tale in some ways, but I found the concept of
a 'semi-tangible' manifestation compelling, and very horrible...

MY BURGLAR - for its rich description, the way it sustains the
reader's interest in spite of it... and its lovely psychological
twist...

THE PAINTER - for its stylish, slow-burn narrative, and the
denoument... (But no spoilers here - in case folks haven't read it
yet...)

NOCTURNE FOR DOGHANDS - for its material surrealism... A fantasy, not
without humour, but depicted with a literalism that makes it truly
disturbing....

On the negative side, I couldn't get on with GENEROUS FURNITURE, and
what there was of MALEDICT MICHAELA I loved, but it seemed to lack an
ending...

Overall - enraptured. Easily tops Nemo #3, I reckon! Looking forward
to seeing other readers' views.

***************

Some news:

You can obtain the whole set of four Nemos signed in ink by me from
the latest catalogue here:
http://www.coldtonnage.com/
Coldtonnage is the only source for these copies signed by me. And I'm
not the editor, really. Nemonymous itself keeps its cards very close
to its printed chest vis a vis the editorial responsibility. So
anyone could have signed them, really. ;-)

A brand new review of Nemonymous *Two* (the 2nd review on the page):

http://hem.passagen.se/alxnys/tqe/thequick.html

which says: "The only *story* I did not like was 'Four Minutes Thirty-Three Seconds', which is five blank pages, and only comes across as wasted space, or a bad joke."

PS: Hey, would anyone like to review Nemo's 1 to 3 whilst knowing who wrote the stories (to compare with earlier reviews that didn't know)? Please contact bfitzworth@yahoo.co.uk for your review copies, if so.

PPS: Re: that recent review of nemo~2, I don't think the reviewer knew who wrote the stories.

Despite receiving many submissions for NEMONYMOUS FIVE since the instigation of the submission guidelines, I've worked hard to get more or less up to date with issuing 'rejections' or 'holding notices'. The deadline remains 30 April 2005.
