EDITORIAL: Falling ahead
Dear List,

As autumn settles in, I don my editorial hat (to my mind, a very rakish
thing, with a feather that curls up and a brim that sweeps down) while my
stalwart alter ego, Stephen Blackwell, gallantly doffs his own. Thank you,

Please remember to keep your posts pertinent (to Nabokov studies) and
respectful (to others, including the many subscribers who may not post
messages themselves but read NABOKV-L faithfully). We ask enthusiastic
correspondents to combine posts on related topics rather than sending a
flood of messages. If at all possible, please identify the focus of your
in the subject heading as a QUERY, THOUGHT, SIGHTING, ANNC
[announcement of a conference or event], BIB [bibliographical entry in
Nabokov studies], or VNBIB [new publication by Nabokov].

If you are a Nabokov scholar, we would like very much to hear what you are
working on at the moment. Send us an announcement of a forthcoming
conference paper or publication or dissertation chapter, or just let us
know what topic you are mulling over. If you are reading (or re-reading!)
Nabokov at the moment, please share your fresh thoughts on a specific
sentence or scene. If you are new to the List, welcome!

Also, please be patient with me as I adjust to a new email system. If your
message hasn't been posted or gotten a response from me in 48 hours, please
let me know, just in case I didn't get it; and if you have second thoughts
after submitting a post, please alert me by sending a message directly to "
nabokv-l@holycross.edu" with a subject heading like "RETRACTION" or "PLEASE
IGNORE MY LAST POST." (Because of the mechanics of editing NABOKV-L, if
you send a revision or request for withdrawal to the listserv, I probably
won't see it until after posting your original submission.)

Happy fall,

Susan Elizabeth Sweeney
Co-Editor, NABOKV-L
