R we playing homophones here Beck?

W.H.G King(ston)stern - My First Voyage To Southern Seas?

Clueless on Barnicle/Barniclue though!

Not it! The "Barnicle" thing reflects the nautical theme of the riddle (and its answer.) It sounds nautical, at least - I spelled it to match the silly "onnicle" thing.

I tried to imitate the writing of the day in my riddle, and there are several clues in the clue - a few overt, one sneakily hidden.

Captain Ahab from Moby-Dick. There's Ishmael as well.

Brilliant work, Beck. But too damn difficult.

Moving into the realm of Steganography (my newly discovered word).

OK, here's an easy one:

Onnicle: In the society of minor criminals there is now much ado, because by using new security photograph technology, shoplifters and pickpockets can be identified very easily.

Clue: Not a person, but a thing you might find on a computer. Tricky, since a word is split (though it is often split – in a way - in the actual name of the thing.)

Onnicle: Having forgotten to set the brake, Lyle wistfully watched his car roll down the hill to crumple against an oak tree.

Onniclue: Off with her head!

Chuckie Dodgson! ...er, LEWIS CARROLL!

Onnicle: The inquisitors were careful to warn erotic artists in eastern Spain that their work was forbidden. The artists ignored the threat, and the River Ebro soon echoed their pitiful screams.

Clue: A well-known company name, partly abbreviated (as one often sees it.)

Onnicle: Brad was proud to land the role of angel in a Christmas pageant; there wasn’t much else for excitement in Joliet.

Do you need a clue for this one???

Onnicle: Mary Jo enjoyed Rene Daumal's "Mont Analogue" more than "A Night of Serious Drinking."

Onniclue: A former SUPER guy.

JOE MONTANA!

Here's a toughie (I think.)

Onnicle: Generally, river environments boast live egrets. Informed people should never, ever victimize egrets, they say.

Clue(s): Despite support from Hollywood big-wigs, backward people often have trouble with this idea, initially. They don’t feel that somebody else’s environmental dream works in their part of the world.
