Nine Stories is an English-language collection of stories written in Russian, French, and English by Vladimir Nabokov. It was published in 1947 by New Directions in New York City, as the second issue of a serial, Direction.
The nine stories are:
- "The Aurelian" (a translation by Nabokov and Peter Pertzov of "Pil'gram")
- "Cloud, Castle, Lake" (a translation by Nabokov and Peter Pertzov of "Oblako, ozero, bashnia")
- "Spring in Fialta" (a translation by Nabokov and Peter Pertzov of "Vesna v Fialte")
- "Mademoiselle O" (a translation by VN with Hilda Ward from the French)
- "A Forgotten Poet"
- "The Assistant Producer"
- "That in Aleppo Once..."
- "Time and Ebb"
- "Double Talk" (which would later be retitled "Conversation Piece")
No further ion of the book was ever published; all nine stories subsequently reappeared in Nabokov's Dozen, and much later within The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov.
