Pen Names

There's a nice bit in the Observer about writing under a nom de plume. Apparently, in this case it is adopted to hide the co-author's past failures, as booksellers (oddly enough) tend to judge authors on their track records.

I think I might call myself "Tristan Fox" or something equally ridiculous if I had to use a pen name. Or perhaps just "William Morris", after the agency. I can imagine the conversation now:
"Hello, this is William Morris."
"Yes, this is William Morris calling, is there someone at William Morris who will read an unsolicited manuscript?"
