According to the uncorrected proof, this is the dope on
The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov, edited by Dmitri Nabokov:

Publisher: Knopf
Publication date: 30 Oct 1995
Price: $35.00
ISBN: 0-394-58615-8
Contents:
Preface
Listed in the table of contents, but since the text
is not in the proof, I do not know who wrote it.

The stories are presented in the order of composition,
when known. The original Russian titles are in
parentheses (as given in the Notes). Dmitri Nabokov
takes credit for the "posthumous" translations of the

bibliographers very much care about) are asterisked
