It is published by Springer-Verlag, ISBN 0-387-98503-4. Yes, it is
available _in the USA_ now (but my copy has not yet crossed the Atlantic
successfully). Springer's Web site has it at

and JMC has a Web site for the book at

with more details (than Springer) on-line. It also says

This book is a guide and reference to the version of S underlying S-Plus
Versions 5.0 and later (not useful if you are programming with earlier
versions of S-Plus).

but then MathSoft International sent out a letter this week saying that
`S-PLUS 5.0 for Unix begins shipping this month'. Exciting times
