Im Ricardo Martinez, editor in chief in Heroes de Papel, and editor of "La Odisea de Shenmue". We are so happy to see our book on this important forum! and with so enthusiastic comments!! Thanks a lot
Im going to try asnwering your doubts one by one... And you can ask whatever you want ;):
1. ENGLISH/FRENCH Editions: We would LOVE to see our book in other languages. Actually, is almost 100% sure our book is going to have a french version. We are working on it right now. Regarding English edition, we are in touch with some UK publisher, but we do not have an official deal with any of them. We are a tiny publisher here in Spain, so we simply can't afford an English edition... to get it, we have to make a deal with an English language publisher. But Im sure we'll achieve this target: is a matter of time, because Shenmue Fans are so enthusiastic with our book! ;)
2. Versions of the book: Red edition is NOT an overcover: it is a completely diferent version, sealed and numered (up to 500 copies only). This red version can be purchased only through our website and, sadly, shipping cost are expensive (it is a delicate item, and shipping cost here in Spain are expensive. Sorry about that!. Nevertheless, the white version (not numered, but exactly the same in contents) will be available this week on Amazon.es (http://www.amazon.es/Odisea-Shenmue-Car ... 8494288156
) so if you are interested in the book there's no problem getting on it.
I think that's everything right now. When I have news about int versions of the book Ill let you know
If you have more questions, please just ask.
