If you read yesterday's plugs, apparently the Apex Book of World SF isn't scheduled to be released until November, due to the publisher employing a more traditional form (i.e. offset printing) of publishing (which is good news in the sense that there'll be more copies!). Having said that, might I interest you in a gothic anthology that has a "world" and multicultural flavor: Exotic Gothic 2. Exotic Gothic 3 should be coming out later this year.
And if there's any one Jeffrey Ford interview you should read--not even mine--it's Larry Nolen's which he did for the Nebula Awards Blog (disclosure: I'm in charge of content development for the site).
Oh, and Greenpunk, Greenpunk, Greenpunk.
P.S. From Luis Katigbak--this could happen to the Philippines considering the current year of arbitrary taxation policy of books.
