Brian,
Rick's message is correct...The Underground City, Luath Press, Edinburgh,
was published on the centenary anniversary day of Verne's death. I guess
that Amazon is your best way of getting it. I can't vouch in detail for the
translation. I just wrote a short Foreward and provided a map which I
thought would help non-Scots (including our friends south of the border!) to
locate the events. The most interesting aspect of the project was that as a
result there was considerable reaction in the media here, (press and radio)
and I gave seven public lectures across Scotland. Clearly Verne's connection
with Scotland was virtually unknown except to those who had read "Backwards
to Britain". He has now been adopted as an honorary native son!
Best wishes,
Ian
