  1. One of the most successful methods of generating a false name is to randomly survey a bookshelf. For example I use a ‘pen name’ that is a composite of librettist, a street map, novelest and a childrens author.
    Mailing address’s are easy too. I use a London W1 address that was bombed to destruction in 1942. All I have done is calculated the post code the property would now possess and then diverted my mail to a Post Office Box No.

    1. G.W. Compton-Milne,

      I hadn’t thought of that. Thanks for the idea. Just to cover myself though in case someone tries something stupid…

      READERS:
      I do caution readers. Do not do anything illegal! Providing false information (e.g. addresses, phone numbers, etc.), assuming someone else’s identity, etc. in some cases may come with unintended side-effects. In the U.S. providing false information to a government official or on official forms often comes packed with hundreds-of-thousands-of-dollars in fines and/or years in jail. Basically, don’t do anything illegal. If you don’t know if it is wrong or not, get a lawyer.
