COMMENTS
In general, for m > 1, Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^(n-k) * binomial(m*k,k) / ((m-1)*k + 1) ~ m^(m*(n+1) + 1/2) / (sqrt(2*Pi) * (m^m + (m-1)^(m-1)) * n^(3/2) * (m-1)^((m-1)*n + 3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jul 30 2021

FORMULA
G.f. A(x) satisfies: A(x) = 1 / (1 + x) + x * (1 + x)^7 * A(x)^8.
a(n) ~ 2^(24*n + 25) / (17600759 * sqrt(Pi) * n^(3/2) * 7^(7*n + 3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jul 30 2021
