1999Per secondary sources, the first appearance of this story in Étoiles vives 7 is translated by Francis Lustman. Subsequent appearances, in various printing of Axiomatique credit the translation to Lustman and Quarante-Deux (Ellen Herzfeld and Dominique Martel). This is most likely the same translation, but the texts should be compared when possible.
