The English-language initial printing of Enki Bilal's SHIP OF STONE from Humanoids Publishing was flawed with a serious printing error. Upon close examination of the book, readers will notice that page 28 was printed twice, while page 27 wasn't included at all.

The company revealed in an official press release that they started working with the printer to produce a correct version of SHIP OF STONE immediately after discovering the problem. The company is taking every possible step to solve this issue as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, it is expected that a delay of 90 days or more will pass before new copies will be available.

What is surprising about this is that Humanoids will not be asking for returns on any of the misprinted books. Anyone in possession of a flawed SHIP OF STONE are welcome to do with them as they please. The company has issued credits to all customers. Anyone re-selling the book should pass along those credits to their customers.

To avoid confusion, Humanoids Publishing will be making an obvious change to the cover of the properly printed SHIP OF STONE. In this way it will be easy to tell the new version from the flawed version. The original had a white logo, while the corrected version will have a yellow/gold logo.
