The official Dim Shore FAQ (via, the late Juan non Volokh)

Q: Hmm; Dim Shore. What kind of name is that?
A: A pseudonym.

Q: That sounds fishy — what does he have to hide?
A: His name.

Q: Oh, pretty please, we’re soooo curious — tell us who he is.
A: No.

Q: Ah, I’ve got it figured out: This is actually your own pseudonym, so you can post things that you’d be ashamed to see under your name.
A: I have no shame. More importantly, if it’s good enough for Publius, Lewis Carroll, Mark Twain, Vladimir Lenin, and Josef Stalin — wait a sec, strike those last two — it’s good enough for me.

Q: Why the Dim Shore?
A: It is taken from “The Shore Dimly Seen”, a book written by one of the most fascinating politicans ever. “The shore dimly seen” was originally in one of my favorite songs.
