Will anyone here admit to using an alias? Tell me why you do it, or why you considered it, or why you’re dead-set against it.
If you Google the name “Lemony Snicket,” you’ll quickly come across the story of why the author chose to use an alias. The story is this (according to Wikipedia):
Daniel Handler originally came up with “Lemony Snicket” as a pseudonym to use rather than placing his real name on the mailing lists of several right-wing organizations he was researching for one of his novels, The Basic Eight. It became something of an in-joke with his friends, who were known to order pizzas under the name. When he found himself writing a series of children’s books, he decided to use the Snicket name.
There will be no mention of aliases or other things to spoil Wednesday’s interview between Bach-Boy Henderson and Lemony Snicket. All content and links will be kid-friendly.
And this Friday the 13th, you can read THE END of A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS for yourself.
