message 7: by Michael (new)

Michael Some of these have ratings due to ARCs being provided by publishers... I think anyhow.


message 8: by Grack21 (new)

Grack21 Well yes, but, come on, Doors of Stone? Winds of Winter? I doubt those will even be out before 2015.


message 9: by Michael (new)

Michael I guess it could also be over zealous fans as well.


message 10: by Angel (new)

Angel No way Winds of Winter comes out this year.


message 11: by Grack21 (new)

Grack21 Heck, I bet we see Winds of Winter before Doors of Stone.


message 12: by Nermin (new)

Nermin Winds of winter is not coming out in 2013. maybe next year, if we're lucky but something tells me we're not gonna be that lucky.

Seconded! I'm going to have to start taking better care of myself if I expect to see the end of the 6th book...


Jamie (The Title Page) so... why is 1984 by George Orwell on this list?


message 16: by Szara (new)

Szara Okay, I laughed when I saw Winds of Winter on there. GRRM delayed Dance with Dragons for /years/.

Expect to wait another 5-6 years. Although with HBO on his back, he may be compelled to write faster.


message 17: by Grack21 (new)

Grack21 I love how these all have ratings.


message 18: by Mark (new)

Mark Lawrence I used to query mine - almost every time someone had just clicked the wrong 'of thorns' book - often on a mobile which misregistered their touch/click.


message 19: by Roshio (new)

Roshio How can Brandon Sanderson write so much?? He is actually unbelievable, I don't think any author actually writes as much as he does (and we are not talking 200 page novellas either). It really is amazing.

Because he's Brandon Sanderson. haha!
And he does it full time.. so, utter devotion to his works, I guess?


message 22: by M (new)

message 23: by Leo (new)

Leo The doors of stone is not going to be 2013 anymore so it should not even be here.

Grack21 Anymore? It never was.


message 25: by Jeraviz (last edited May 24, 2013 03:47AM) (new)

Jeraviz The Doors of Stone, in a recent video interview, Pat indicated that this will probably be released in 2014.


message 26: by Terry (new)

Terry Why not have Fantasy and sci-fi separate?


message 27: by Mc (new)

Mc Seriously? i mean seriously?
As a huge fan of scifi, why o why, does everyone put sci fi and fantasy in same basket?
what do little wizards, drows, vampires, ware-xyz, druids, faries and other emo beings have with scifi so everyone classifies them together?
I got frustrated as i was looking for some recomendation for reading and all i see is endless sea of teenage romance fantasy stuff...
Ok i get some ppl like that, but again, why-o-why put sci fi and fantasy together? :)

go make your own list if it pisses you off. i do this for me, for fun. i voted for FIVE books and i didn't expect over 2000 voters. it's not supposed to be taken seriously. if you want actual recommendations, just ask someone!


message 29: by Terry (new)

Terry Really, it is pointless to combine SF and Fantasy in one poll. Slim pickin's for the SF folks. I think they stay away from this kind of confusion of the genres.

I see no trouble with looking for recommendations in a poll like this but it is rather one-sided by the look of it.


message 30: by Grack21 (new)

Grack21 Too bad?

Brandon writes as literally a full-time job. As in, he generally works on his books eight hours a day. He has finished works not yet published, and he feeds on his own creativity. Still...Brandon is a special case, too. I honestly don't know any other writers as purely talented as Brandon.

message 33: by Artemas (new)

Artemas The 486 people voting for The Winds of Winter are wishful thinkers if they believe that thing is going to be released in 2013. ;)


message 34: by Lab (new)

Lab Those of you waiting on George Martin, Patrick Rothfuss or Deborah Harkness should "dig" into the Wool trilogy by Hugh Howey. You won't be disappointed and you can read straight thru without waiting years!!!!!
