Being famous under a pseudonym can lead
to problems. Eric Blair, aka George Orwell, once learned that Ernest
Hemingway was staying in a room at the same hotel he was staying at. He
knocked on Hemingway's door and introduced himself as Eric Blair, and
Hemingway asked what he wanted. Blair then reintroduced himself as
George Orwell, and Hemingway said, "Why didn't you say so?"
