Vulgar Argot's new pen name?

IliaVolyova

He mentioned (in his last blog post) that he was writing under a new pen name because his old one may have become associated with his name.

Does anyone know what his new pen name is? If yes, could you please PM it to me? (so his purpose in changing names isn't frustrated)

I asked him for the new name after that blog post. Nothing doing.

He probably doesn't want the new pen name associated with his old one or his real name...

There's no "probably" about it.
He did not know me well enough to trust me not to pass it on.

IliaVolyova

Ah well, thank you for letting me know.

Not sure what good it does...

If the old has been associated to his real name then there is no recovery by switching. It would still be known that he (I am assuming) wrote erotica and the blog entry just tells everyone he plans to continue.

If it were me (and it isn't) I would make the switch with no notice and move past material to the archive to provide the avenue that it is no longer a current hobby. Even that may not help with some situations.

I have long since accepted that we will never know for sure who he or she is now and if he is even active, and will never see more stories from the Vandervoort universe. Personally though I've been wondering - VA stopped posting in 2010, he was fond of Slavic names, aroslav started posting in 2011 and uses a Slavic name.

According to VA's blog, he started writing under his new name mid-2013.

He currently uses both pen names, having posted a chapter under the aroslav pen name on December 25, and he finished a story as Wayzgoose in December 11th.

'Wayzgoose' is the alias Nathan Everett uses on SOL. He uses 'aroslav' as the alias for Devon Layne on SOL.

Nathan Everett writes the non-erotic stories and he uses the name Devon Layne for his erotic writings.

All great stories no matter under which pseudonym.

I suspect I know who it is, from some shared stylistic tics, theme and content similarities, and some fairly obscure references. The dates check out, too.

I'm not going to say who I think it is, though. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, and if I'm right, I'd be revealing something Vulgar Argot clearly doesn't want revealed.

It isn't aroslav/Wayzgoose, who's an excellent writer, but whose writing is nothing like Vulgar Argot's.
