From: Don Johnson:


Our beloved editors (who, I'm sure, got more than they bargained for when they magnanimously volunteered to assume their posts) recently urged contributors to check the extensive NABOKV-L Archives BEFORE submitting their comments (where appropriate). I would add that checking ZEMBLA as well may be profitable. Quite by chance, I ran across there the item below which on its second page gives an excellent discussion of the virtues of the "Pale Fire" and VN's attitude toward it.

Genius and Plausibility: Suspension of Disbelief in Pale Fire
by J. Morris

A penultimate thought. It would be helpful if all contributors put their names at the top of their messages (and at bottom as well), along with their e-addresses. Lastly, please give informative brief titles for your subject line. This is important for locating older information and thread continuity. Subject lines like PQ to RX are useless.

Best, Don Johnson chtodel@cox.net
