I was at B&N last night to try and pick a copy up and they told me that its release date was June 2007. I hope that I don't have to wait that long.

response today from Hofstadter:
"Hello, and thanks for your interest. Writing this book was more complicated than I thought it would be -- a typical example of Hofstadter's Law ("It always takes longer than you think it will take, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law."). I have essentially finished the text now, but there remain a number of other things to take care of (illustrations, notes, index, etc.). You can count on it appearing in early 2007. That keeps this one consistent with all my former books, which appeared in odd-numbered years -- a curious coincidence. Best wishes -- Douglas Hofstadter."

Today it says March 5. I am so glad that I have just now learned about this with only a month+ to go.

GEB was a life-changing experience for me; it made me really weird. ;) But rather than fading away, it keeps coming back to me in unexpected ways. So much has happened in complexity science since GEB. I've really wanted to see what Hofstadter would bring to it. I'm really excited to see this book coming...
