Default Japanese translation of my book?

So, got a weird package in the mail yesterday. A box of 6 copies of my 2nd book all translated into Japanese!

Is anyone out there a Japanese Maya artist and interested in a copy? If you guys want, I could make it a prize in the next challenge.

Having a hard time finding a link to it anywhere though. It's got a new (better) cover and everything! Pretty cool.

Cool! The thing is, did they translate it correctly? :p

My dad has some old FORTRAN books that were translated from English into Japanese (he knows a bit) - it is rather amusing how translations can turn out...
