To give a new twist to this phoenix-like thread, are there any books that are still being written you want to read?

Mine are

1. Mark Bittner, the author of The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill, is working on his new book about his experience of being homeless and living on the streets.

2. Anything Jonathan Safran Foer is writing right now.

3. I Am a Strange Loop by Douglas R. Hofstadter (of course)

Updated version Effective Java -- Joshua Bloch

But I don't know if he is thinking of even updating it. I have to ask him.

Does your Mr Safran have a web page? I'm wondering if it is the same as mine.

A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin. And at least two more books in the same series after that.

The Design of Future Things by by Donald A. Norman.

I liked his The Design of Everyday Things, wasn't that excited about Emotional Design, curious about the last thing.

Urasawa Naoki's remake of Pluto, one of Tezuka Osamu's Tetsuwan Atomu story. There's like one volume per year... And now that you're talking of Effective Java...

"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.

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. )

O'Reilly has an interesting project: Software Craftsmanship

John Resig's book is materializing as Manning's "Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja" title.

And for Effective Java 2nd edition. Amazon US says May 28, 2008, while the UK site now says 28 Aug 2008. I doubt either has any real info at this point.
