for those of you who don't pay attention to such stuff - or just lost track - the anthology containing the 'Sunbird' story that Neil read at FG was recently released. The collection is obviously aimed at younger readers (booklist claims Gr. 4-7), but is sufficiently full of charm for the young of heart among us ;)
the title is (deep breath) :
Noisy Outlaws, Unfriendly Blobs, and Some Other Things That Aren't as Scary, Maybe, Depending on How You Feel About Lost Lands, Stray Cellphones, Creatures from the Sky, Parents Who Disappear in Peru, a Man Named Lars Farf, and One Other Story We Couldn't Quite Finish, So Maybe You Could Help Us Out.
... for short.

The stories all have minor illustrations (apart from the James Kolchaka one, which *is* an illustrated story), and the jacket cover contains an incomplete story by Lemony Snicket (hence the 'help us out' bit of the title). And there are prizes for finishing off the story and mailing it in (personally, i'm aiming for the sack of dirt from Winnipeg).
