VN Bibliography (fwd)
From: Elaine Norris <Lainey@austin.rr.com>

I manage a bookstore with a small news stand and unfortunately the "off
sale" date has passed and if any stores had copies left they would have been
destroyed. Fortunately, destroyed means that the box was returned to the
vendor and I kept the contents. I have three extra copies of Paperback
Nabokov that I would be happy to send out on a first come first served
basis. It is illegal, of course, to save them from the dumpster, but oh
well. I sold 47 copies for the very steep cover price, so the magazine did
well and I have no guilt. Email me directly if you are interested.
