associations: VN scrambled his last name to produce his first
pseudonym: V. Cantaboff. A great name, it brings to mind song and
buffo joking. Don't you think that the name bears much resemblance to
Kinbote--again the letters are recycled, only an "i" is added,
reemphasizing, perhaps, VN himself: I, Cantaboff, Kinbote. Fran Assa

Serves me right for not checking the archives first - Fran Assa solved
the V Cantaboff as a simple anagram - a simpler solution, and
therefore superior to mine: I, V Nabacoff

Oh, well - it was a good try,
