Hi there!

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.

Thanks!!

Hello!

Thank you very much for giving us direct info about your book and by the way, congratulations, it looks beautiful!

I'm happy to know that a french edition is on track, I'll definitely buy it!
Will there be a french "red" version?

As for the English version, I truly hope you'll find a Publisher! If unfortunately that couldn't be achieved, did you give a thought at Kickstarter for an English (or even more) editon?

Thanks for the feedback !

You're right, shipping fees are a bit expensive but that's not your fault. Too bad the limited edition won't be available on Amazon but I am hoping for an English / French version !

Great news, Mr Martinez. Thank you for sharing the information. Are there any plans for a German language version?

I'll definitely buy the French version of the book - or the English version if there will be one - depending on which one comes first.

I've also sent you some information about publishers in Germany who might fit. Maybe it can help.

Good luck with your book! =D>

PS: Please be sure to let the forum know about any news on translated versions of your book. :D
