The Fractal Prince, weird ISBN issue

I want to pre-order The Fractal Prince from Amazon, but as I was reviewing the selections I found the hardcover edition has two ISBN numbers: 978-0765329509 Tor 336p, 978-0575088917 Gollancz 448p.
Now, the cover art is of course different, but what really got me confused is that the Gollancz edition has 112 pages more than the Tor edition. The descriptions are the same, so its the same story, but I can't figure out how one book could possibly have a longer story than the other. Any thoughts?
Either the information is incorrect (remember, this is the publishers' estimates, it could be obsolete) or else one of the editions is typeset much more spaciously.
US publishers tend to reset UK books, but not vice versa. The Fractal Prince is a UK book - Rajaniemi signed to Gollancz, not Tor US.
Curiouser and curiouser. Well whatever, as long as the story is the same. I thought The Quantum Thief was excellent.
Page counts on Amazon can be wildly inaccurate - yes, even by 112 pages.
