Post Solution Non Satisfaisante: Heinlein and the Atomic Weapon
I have the pleasure to inform you that Solution Non Satisfaisante: Heinlein et L'Arme Atomique, edited by Éric Picholle, is now in my hands.

Éric translated Heinlein's "Solution Unsatisfactory" into French for the first time. He also wrote a chapter about Heinlein and the Bomb, and translated chapters by me and by H. Bruce Franklin.

Publisher's site: http://somniumeditions.free.fr/Somnium/H3-RAHsns.html

I wrote a short biography of Robert Alden Cornog, Heinlein's friend. He was a nuclear physicist, a Los Alamos engineer, and a missileman. I also discuss Cornog's connections to RAH's fiction. The two of them kicked around story ideas and scientific notions; Cornog served as a model for more than one Heinlein character. More on my contribution: http://beamjockey.livejournal.com/144546.html

It's a fine-looking book on an important subject in Heinlein studies. Congratulations to Éric and to Anouk Arnal for their efforts in putting it together.

I missed seeing this announcement -- and It's something I'd much like to see. Eric has not been responding to my pings recently, so I'm wondering if all is OK.

Incidentally, I'm about to publish an English translation of theforeword of Solutions nonfaisantes and chapter on Stranger in the Journal. Eric and Ugo have vetted the translation of the foreword, but not the chapter on [i]Stranger[i/] yet.
