I see "Tori Ives" in there, but don't think the publicist for the Crescenta Valley High School Symphony Orchestra (La Crescenta, CA) is famous enough to deserve an onnicle.

Also, could we please agree upon a less silly name for these puzzles?

Jenny! That was absolutely brilliant!

I found "EE" in blueeyed boy, but that was the only reference to the author I could find.

I got my own onnicle!!! HOLY S***!!! Where can I possibly go from here?

Very clever, JJs, very clever.

What means, "Who shot Bill?" I don't get that part.

Humor: Who shot Bill? Beck shot Bill! smile

I couldn't very well say, "Find a famous onnicler in this poem", could I?

After all, there are only onetwothreefourfivesixbeckseven, or so, of us. smile

Consider this poor fellow. His entire country’s in bad shape ever since those darned Mamluks took over. Nonetheless, he continues to sail (or sometimes magically travel) the pathways of classic fictional heroes to this day.

SINBAD THE SAILOR: MAGICICAL TRAVELS?

Artfully presented, I might add.
