Nemonymous 9 published
Nemonymous is a UK publication which the editor and publisher call a "megazanthus". (Their portmanteau word combining magazine and anthology) It contains original short fiction.
It is edited by British writer D.F. Lewis. Nemonymous is unique in that all stories are published anonymously, and in the early issues, the identities of contributing authors were withheld until the following issue came out. The idea behind this arrangement was to temporarily strip the reader of any preconceptions about the authors (including popularity, gender and place of origin), and thus level the playing field of expectation.
In fact stories were also submitted anonymously for several volumes so that the editor did not know the authors until he had completed his 'long list'.
The ninth issue of Nemonymous, entitled Cern Zoo has now been released and details are available here. It contains 24 short stories including - as a declaration of interest - one by yours truly
Lately authors' names have been included on the back cover but there are no clues to identify the story they contributed to the collection. Authors' names are released on the website after giving readers time to finish the collection, and send in their best guesses as to who wrote what.
Each volume continues to list the previous issue's authors' names alongside their story's title.
