The Scoop on Gaia:

There WAS a printing in mid-summer, but there were major physical printing
errors involved, so it wasn't sent out.

We (authors and guest editors) were told that the new printing was going to
run last month, and that we should be receiving copies in "mid-September".
I myself have yet to receive them, but who knows: maybe they showed up at
Tyrrell in any case.
