Done by David Pringle, Ballard's archivist. Just went up for the first time ever online.

I read The Wild Boys in Portugal, and there they were smiling. Apparently, only half of that’s ever been published in England. The man who translated me into French, translated New Eve into French, has also translated – to my immense gratification, is the French translator of Burroughs – and he said there’s a great chunk of it, that’s never been published in England. And, I assume he knows – I mean, it’s his business.
you what? ... does this mean the French "Wild Boys" has stuff in it that the Calder doesn't? ... I'l check this out but I think not... the translators {{. Translated by Mary Beach and Claude Pelieu}} are probably refering to sections of the Revised Boy Scouts Manual that could have gone in but didn't..... someone correct me if I am wrong.
BTW:: Between you, me and a blog post, I think Claude Pelieu was a naughty boy and "translated" with a very "one hand waving free" when he was given half the chance..... someone correct me if I am wrong ...
