Just wondering if there is any difference between the American and British version of your next novel. Or are American market forces at work in euphemising your preferred title choice?

Always eager to catch your next novel as early as possible...even if I have to have it sent air mail overseas!

Aside from the title change, and the usual Americanising of spelling and vocabulary (sidewalk-pavement, that kind of thing), the two editions should be identical. Given the very short gap in publishing schedules (May in the UK, June in the US), you're probably as well waiting for the US edition - though you will miss out on an absolutely kick ass cover (see Amazon uk for a preview) which, due to title change, the US edition won't have (though I'm also very fond of what Del Rey have done with the thirteen conceit.)

Don't think it was market forces that provoked the title change, though - these were decidedly cultural issues at work, I suspect.
