Every other source I can find has the September 2001 date (publisher, Amazon, etc). As this is a movie-tie-in edition for the TV miniseries (which released in 2001), I'm inclined to leave that date as I'm thinking the first edition may have come out then.

I have this same ISBN and checked, and the copyright page states "First Simon & Schuster Paperbacks edition 2004" (with an s on the end of Paperback). Simon & Schuster Paperbacks is one of S&S's imprints, so it doesn't appear to be stating the first paperback edition came out in 2004, just that the first one under this imprint was released in 2004. It's entirely possible an earlier version was released under a different imprint.

ETA: And here's a Worldcat page with only the 2001 date for the same ISBN, so I'm thinking that's the correct date and the 2004 date is in reference to a later printing under the S&S Paperbacks imprint.
