While cataloguing the French language translation of “Sail” by James Patterson and Howard Roughan I noticed that the co-author Howard Roughan was NOT mentioned anywhere on the french novel !! What does this imply? That because a translator came along and translated the English to French that suddenly this negated the credit of the co-author? Ridiculous! When I catalogued it I put the co-author in square brackets.

I wonder if I had not been familiar with the English version would I have even noticed the omission??
