Starfish tp ETA?

I know this is a long shot, but I don't suppose anyone out there knows when the trade paper edition of Starfish is due for release? A search on Tor's website turns up nothing.

Yes, I've asked them directly. Repeatedly. I actually brought it up twice in my last e-mail, which netted the response Yes, we're rereleasing Starfish. Not that I wasn't happy to hear this — ever since they pulled SF from its original 2006 slot I've wondered whether it had really been "rescheduled" or simply abandoned — but it doesn't actually answer the question of when. And I know it must seem weird to resort to message-in-a-bottle tactics over such a basic query. But, you know. Tor.

So, anyone?

I've been trawling the net the last few days trying to track down a dead tree copy for my shelves, and I seem to recall more than one place reporting an '08 date. But, yeah, that's the only place I can concretely put my finger on.

Damn. There it is. doesn't have it listed anywhere, so it never occured to me to look on the .ca site. Thanks.

This is amazing. I've been asking Tor for months without success, and literally five minutes after posting to the crawl, someone points me to the right date. All hail the power of the mob.

Well, okay. The clique.

Well, okay, a ragtag handful of fugitive outcasts. But whatever you all are, hail.

Ebear had a similar experience recently.

The snarty-pants answer would be "right after Gerrold finishes the next Chtorr novel" ....
