"Josh Bloch's Effective Java 2nd Edition is supposedly coming out in under two weeks." - Any idea when it will be out in the UK?

Well, amazon.co.uk lists it as 28 June 2008. I seriously doubt there's that big a gap between US and UK availability - more likely is that at least one of those dates is wrong. My experience is that any publication date several months in the future is probably just someone's wild guess - whereas one that's just a week or two away seems somewhat more likely to be accurate. However it's still entirely possible that the data at amazon.com is in error. Best to wait and see, I guess. [ October 31, 2007: Message edited by: Jim Yingst ]

The resurfacing of this thread prompted me to search for new Lipsyte material. I found that he is teaching fiction at Columbia University. Interestingly, I had a very vivid dream last night about participating in a year-long class on experimental writing. So if I win the lottery, I'm quitting my job, moving to New York, and enrolling.
(Oh... No new Lipsyte books yet. )
