Micromegas is a novella written by Voltaire and first published in 1752.

"On one of the planets that orbits the star named Sirius there lived a spirited young man, who I had the honor of meeting on the last voyage he made to our little ant hill. He was called Micromegas[1], a fitting name for anyone so great. He was eight leagues tall, or 24,000 geometric paces of five feet each".

This edition of Micromegas is based on Peter Phalen's translation.
