I mentioned this in the first voting thread. It's why I happily voted for Verne the second time around as well.

With all the talk about the Ron Miller translation I thought I'd look into it as I would have felt bad nominating and voting for a translation that was widely considered awful. But I figured - as the Ron Miller translation isn't here and isn't actually claiming to be better than more modern translations of the original, I couldn't see any particular reason to wait for it. There's no actual guarantee it will be better than what's currently available anyway.

In any case, I'm pretty happy with this result as this was on my reading list for this year.
