by André Caroff
adapted by Brian Stableford
cover by Jean-Michel Ponzio
"You are a murderer, Mr. Maxwell! The United States is inhabited by a population of murderers! Your country is a realm of corruption, gangsterism, vice, racism and crime! Your women do the housework for you and get drunk in bars! You kill men like Lincoln and Kennedy, when no foreigner would have touched a hair on their heads! Mr. Maxwell, you will die slowly, and you will be able to watch yourself die! Your muscles are already dead. Soon, your nerves will be; then your blood will coagulate in your veins. Your heart will cease to beat, but for a few seconds, your brain will continue to function. Those few seconds will be horrible, Mr. Maxwell-horrible! And I hope you enjoy them! Compliments of Madame Atomos, Mr. Maxwell!"
