Bonjour, Good Morning or Evening, Guten Tag...

In many (bad) american translations of "L'Ile mysterieuse", the hero
Cyrus Smith was named Captain Harding. The same happens to other
characters of the same novel. In some translations of "Voyage au
centre de la Terre", Lidenbrock was called von Hardwigg, Axel got
the name of Harry, etc.

Please, Kip, call the vernian characters according to what Jules Verne
named them and not according to the (criminal) first translators in
the US.

Kip, many authors already discussed the problem of the dates in Verne's
works, among them the history of Nemo's life :

Last week, Garmt was discussing some individuals who tried to imitate
Phileas Fogg. The best known are Jean Cocteau, the french poet and
novelist and Nellie Bly, who stopped in Amiens to meet Jules Verne at
his home where she refused to have a glass of red wine...

A compilation of these Fogg co-runners can be found in :

Nellie Bly contre Phil©as Fogg. JV, Amiens, Centre de documentation
Jules Verne, special issue on Verne and Nellie Bly), Nr 26, April-june
