What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

Kirth Gersen is the hero of Jack Vance's Demon Princes series. I spell it differently. (Also, it sometimes serves to identify people who don't read too carefully - and we know who we are. [It's not Keith.])


Here are some people who are not afraid to have their names on a list. The list has no significance other than that.
If you want your name to appear on this list, just ask.

Squid Voltaire
Ms. Saint
Johnny Wallflower*

3 It was a long youth I lived in fear of lists, and a desperate few years plagued by the sound
---even by the quiet, six-by-six-by-six-lettered look---of my own name.
I grew a strong truth in the eventual, and categories came familiar as I discerned order
in life, through and within and beside the chaos, some things stay the same.
Aged to the number-wrong proof was meaningless, symmetry and consonance lent glory,
and I no longer felt any shame:
