Bibliography update and new Editor

Submitted by Brian_Boyd on Sat, 05/23/2020 - 18:10

Shakeeb Arzoo in Kolkata, India, has done a selfless and heroic job of checking, regularizing and adding links and information to all the material in the existing secondary Nabokov bibliography. This had had many glitches from its original compilation and as a consequence of the complex job (undertaken by Dmitry and Alina Kirsanov) of transferring it from one computer system to a very different one.
