Did any of you ever read the translation into Russian of A. Porges' "The Devil and Simon Flagg" which was featured in the magazine Квант once? If so, could you tell me the issue in which it appeared?

I know this question might not be suitable for MO but, since I am really interested in settling it, I dare to pose it here...

Let me thank you in advance for your attention and support.

    $\begingroup$ At kvant.mccme.ru there is a Russian page which is an archive. If you search for devil (the Russian word for it), you are likely to find it. Gerhard "Assumes You Can Type Cyrillic" Paseman, 2017.08.09. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 9, 2017 at 21:04
