Nabokovilia: Getting It Published

I'm nearly 100% that this bit from William Germano's Getting It Published, is intentional Nabokovilia (and if so, way witty, given the professor's field of study):
An editor in psychology might acquire thirty titles a year in the field, five of which will come in through the efforts of Professor Quilty, the distinguished abnormal psychologist, whose extensive contacts have enabled her to build the respected series Narcolepsy Today.
