including information on joining the International Vladimir Nabokov
Society and receiving its publications.

Library, which began on April 23, 1999. The on-line version includes many
images of items includes in the exhibit.

2. Information on _Véra's Butterflies_, a wonderful book by Sarah Funke

Stephen Jay Gould, Kurt Johnson, James Salter, Stacy Schiff, and Michael Wood.

3. Brian Boyd's account of the recent Nabokov Centenary Festival in St.
Petersburg, Russia. (Which first appeared here on NABOKV-L several days ago.)

4. "Poetry, Exile, and Prophetic Mystification in 'Vasiliy Shishkov'
(1939)" by Maxim D. Shrayer. This long essay, excerpted from Shrayer's
recent book _The World of Nabokov's Stories_, examines in detail the
genesis of the story "Vasiliy Shishkov" and discusses Nabokov's poetry and
its reception in émigré circles in the 1930s.
