Thanks! Looks good. Hope they release it here. I'll have to check the U.S. Amazon site.

Found it on Amazon with a Nov. release date, but it was listed as "out of print/limited release". Couldn't find it on Barnes & Noble, but I did find this, sorry if it's already here somewhere:

Imagined Lives: Portraits of Unknown People

By contrast, the fantasy writer Terry Pratchett has written an amusing tale about an explorer who presented Elizabeth I with a skunk. And John Banville has seen, in the features of a man on his deathbed, the face of an admired officer serving with Cromwell's New Model Army.

I have been informed that that cover is not going to be used and that Amazon shouldn't be showing it. So please disregard that picture.
