I finished "CJKV Information Processing" Second Edition in mid-December, and received the first two copies yesterday (Christmas Eve, 2008). Attached is a photo of one of them. See: http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596514471/
"CJKV Information Processing" Second Edition is done! I entered the final edits this morning, and generated two 900-page PDFs. One is for printing, and the other is the online version. I should receive a blueline proof on Thursday or Friday.
CJKV Information Processing Second Edition goes to press on the 10th. Given that I am also typesetting it, using Adobe InDesign CS3-J, it is in my hands right up until then. The current page count is 900 pages. That includes 34 pages of front matter and 26 pages of index. I submitted the book to O'Reilly for QC2 (Quality Check 2) this morning. I spent the four-day Thanksgiving Day break entering QC1 edits and applying page-breaking to the book. It is in very good shape.
The proverbial "light at the end of the tunnel" is getting pretty darn bright now. :-)
