Anonymous Authors

With the recent speculaton over who is behind the new book O: A Presidential Novel, what do you think about books being published by anonymous authors? Several books have published anonymously within the last forty years. Some authors revealed their involvement years later. Does it make the work less credible because they hide (or try to hide) their identity?

Loved Jay's Journal and Go Ask Alice - they are about personal journeys and understandably (if they are genuine) anonymous.

Anonymously publishing a story that includes real, public personalities seems kind of cowardly to me though. Anonymously commenting on a blog entry, however, is not at all an act of cowardice :).
