War all the time: what's with all the missing pages? (1 Viewer)

I got War All the Time out of the library and noticed it has a ton of blank pages. Horsemeat must have half a dozen omitted pages alone.

I'm a newbie to Bukowski (and this forum) so I have to ask how normal is this for Black Sparrow. I have the 9th printing. Is there another printing that contains all the pages?

Printing error. A sheet probably went through the press stuck to another sheet leaving one side unprinted. Not sure what size their signatures were but I'll bet that there are either 8 or 16 blank pages, right?
Just a flake incident is my guess. I have three copies of War... and all of them have the proper pages/printing. In general, BSP is well-regarded for quality, so maybe you just got one of a bad batch.

You need to read all of Horsemeat - find another copy.
Thanks for the ideas. Not sure how many blanks there are -- will have to go back and check.

So there is nothing specifically wrong with the 9th printing? Just wondering because there are a few other copies in the library system that I can go after. I definitely want to read all of Horsemeat.

Nope. This type of error just affects an occasional individual sheet, unlike when you have pages bound in upside-down which usually affects a small stack of signatures (meaning more bad books).
