The Great Sniping to Date

Wow. Just when you thought they couldn't come up with any other Harry Potterish books. This one really takes the cake. As described in the press release:
The Great Snape Debate by Amy Berner, Orson Scott Card and Joyce Millman explores whether Hogwarts professor Severus Snape, one of J.K. Rowling's most complicated characters, is a friend or foe of boy wizard Harry Potter. The book's design allows it to make cases for both sides. One half of the book supports Snape, but flip it over and the other half portrays him as a minion for He Who Shall Not Be Named, and a true enemy of Harry's.
Once I've gotten past the Orson Scott Card elements of this announcement, there's something else I'm wondering about. Go look this up on Amazon. See anything odd? Say... the date of publication perhaps? Am I reading this wrong or is this book speculating on something that will have already been resolved come July?

Amazon lies -- this book is out now. I saw it with my own two eyes yesterday at Borders (here's the post to prove it: http://kellyrfineman.livejournal.com/196429.html). However, it's a Borders exclusive, so you can only buy it from Borders (theoretically, although Amazon does/used to do the online orders for Borders). And OSC only contributed to the Case for Snape's Innocence, not The Case for Snape's Guilt.
