Looks like it finally got published, if this is what I think it is:

I remember hearing about this being "in publishing" years and years back, probably 2009 at the latest. Somewhere I picked up a PDF - I think from ARMA - that translated Lecküchner; I wonder if they're one in the same.

When I was a fighting-man, the kettle-drums they beat,
The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.

The main Leckuechner translation out there is done by some of the Hammaborg chaps, iirc: Zabinski et al.

This is not that one, it's Forgeng's translation, and is (as far as I know) just coming out for the first time.

Roger that. Spotted this on Amazon while I was in the office, which is unfortunately not where my digital sources are :(

Speaking of which, I don't think our treaties collection here has a copy of that.
