He has published various books, including a biography of Charlemagne, and collections of interviews with politicians. His meetings with Anais Nin in Paris during the autumn of 1974 led to his long-lasting interest in her.

MARIA CHEKHOV (1863-1957), was sister to novelist Anton Chekhov, and her memoir Of Days Long Past recalls a wealth of factual material spanning her brother’s life. She also edited six volumes of Chekhov’s collected letters, and was the founder of the Chekhov museum in Yalta.

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN V, longtime Nin bibliographer, is co-founder of Under the Sign of Pisces, the first true periodical centered on the work of Anais Nin. He is currently at work getting Nin’s long-neglected Paris edition of The Winter of Artifice into print again, and his introduction to the book appears in this issue.

JACQUES LAŸ is an expert on Impressionism and a historian of Louveciennes, France, where he resides. He is co-author, with his wife Monique, of the award-winning Louveciennes Mon Village, a well documented look at the personages and history of the town in which Anais Nin lived during the 1930s.

KARL OREND, a leading expert on expatriate Paris and Henry Miller in particular, is an editor for Nexus: The International Henry Miller Journal and the founder of Alyscamps Press. He has been published in TLS, Chronicle of Higher Education, and many other journals, and has written and edited several books.

MORTON TRAUB has collected his dreams over a long period of time into the unpublished volume Unfolding Splendor. He shared an interest in Jung with Anais Nin, whom he saw at a lecture in 1969. A letter from Nin inspired the poem appearing in this issue, and the poem in turn inspired an invitation to visit her at her Los Angeles home.
