The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov (in some British ions, The Collected Stories) is a posthumous collection of every known short story that Vladimir Nabokov ever wrote, with the exception of "The Enchanter". The thirteen stories not previously published in English are translated by the author's son, Dmitri Nabokov. The collection was first published in America by Alfred A. Knopf in 1995.

The collection includes 65 stories (including one that was long considered lost, but discovered shortly before the latest ion of the volume).

List of stories[]

The subject of Sebastiano del Piombo's Dorotea (1513) is the "Venetian" of Nabokov's "La Veneziana".

The Kaiser-Friedrich Museum of Berlin houses the painting.
