(urth) Typo in _Starwater Strains_?

On p. 217 of _Starwater Strains_ (U.S. hardbound), in "The Boy Who
Hooked the Sun", the phrase "pelted him with the shining stones of
Atlantis" is a recurring motif, except at what would be its third
occurrence, where it is printed as "pelted him with the shining
stories of Atlantis".
Given the similar appearance of "stories" and "stones", I think this
is likely to be a mis-transcription somewhere along the line, not
some encoding of "the story that is a stone" or "the story among the
stones" or "third 'stone' from the Sun" or anything.
If anyone reading this has access to the Cheap Street chapbook, could
you tell us how the word appears in that edition?
