Claire (Clairby11xxx) Isn't Stardust published in 1999?

It is according to GR.... I don't own the book though (haven't read it either), so I can't check for you unfortunately.

If you google it it says 1st Feb 1999 which agrees with what is on GR, not sure how else to check it.

I'm a bit reluctant to remove it, as I don't own the book and can't tell for sure....

I just did a random check and it seems it is not the only one that wasn't published in 1998: When She Was Bad (#98) seems to have been first published in 1997 and so was Round Ireland with a Fridge (#98 as well), according to GR. I should be able to check this last one though, if I can find it.
