message 1: by Michael (new)

Michael Not much science fiction in this list...


message 2: by Artemas (new)

Artemas 5 people voting think The Winds of Winter is coming out in 2014.

I need to sell some of my beachfront property in North Dakota to these people.


message 3: by Elspeth (new)

Elspeth Sworn in Steel is in the list twice.


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Anything by Brandon Sanderson, that is all.


message 5: by Kristina (new)

Kristina The Skull Throne (currently #8) and the Winds of Winter (currently #10) are both currently scheduled for 2015...


message 6: by Michael (new)

Michael Good list, but there must be more scifi than what's listed being released in 2014.


message 7: by Lee (new)

Lee Sidonie The entries to this list are so mouthwatering...


message 8: by Grant (new)

Grant Coulton Surprised the new Raymond E. Feist book isn't on the list

What Feist book is that?


message 10: by Ed (new)

Ed My Top Five - I'm picky - lol


message 11: by Tyrone (new)

Tyrone The amount of actual SCIENCE FICTION on this list is a bit disappointing.
I hate how fantasy has hijacked the sci fi genre.


message 12: by Ed (new)

Ed I hate the fact that the last good sci fi I read was Ender's Game - and I average 3 to 5 books a week. There have been no really good scifi writers out there in quite a while - couldn't tell you why.

Did you bother reading the title of this list? SciFi/Fantasy means its fair game for both. The thing that bothers me the most is the amount of paranormal crap littering most scifi/fantasy lists. Ugh.

No kidding, 2015 is a long shot. I wouldn't be surprised if they had to stretch out the television series just to accommodate the writing schedule.

Well it's begun. They've split book 3 into seasons 3 and 4. I REALLY wonder what HBO will do when they get to the end and GRRM still has 1 1/2 books to finish writing.


message 16: by Mike (new)

Mike Uhm, The Skull Throne isn't expected to be published until 2015. Can this book be removed from the list?

Ok, unless you read Ender's Game for the first time in, say, the last 5 years, you need to look harder! May I suggest you investigate the works of Peter F Hamilton? (Ok, so The Night's Dawn trilogy may have been a LITLLE bit earlier than 5 years ago, but it definitely came out after Ender's Game! His standalone, The Great North Road, was only in the last couple of years.)
Also the Expanse series by James S A Corey impressed me.
Haven't had a chance to read it myself, but The Forever Watch by David Ramirez looks intruiging.

If I could find these, I'm sure there are others out there.

Ah. Kevin J Anderson's Seven Suns. Again probably a few years ago, but definitely not 1985!

Probably this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/King-Ashes-Fi...

BUT, it isn't due out until next year

Have you tried reading Dancing with Eternity by John Patrick Lowrie?

The Honor Harrington Books by David Weber are also very good Sci/Fi reads.


message 21: by Karthikeya (new)

Karthikeya I'm sure Patrick Rothfuss is laughing his ass off looking at this. It's almost a given that the book is not coming out this year. I guess this will top the list next year too.

And GRRM as well if he wasn't too busy blogging about football.

you haven't read any good scifi in almost 30 years? Ender's Game was first published in the late 80s


message 24: by Donna (new)

Donna Chambers Michael wrote: "Not much science fiction in this list..."

agree. I have come to hate how the horror books have taken over the sci-fi sections at the book stores


message 25: by Andrew (last edited Sep 19, 2014 12:38PM) (new)

Andrew Obrigewitsch Please remove the books that are not coming out this year:

Doors of Stone (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #3)

The Winds of Winter (A Song of Ice and Fire, #6)

The Bastards and the Knives (Gentleman Bastard, #0)

I have to agree about the Sci-Fi, there are only 1 or 2 Sci-Fi books coming out a year that actually have any interest to me. Most of the new stuff I have read has just been bad, cardboard characters and info dump mania. The only one I liked was James S.A. Corey, and that even got bad in the 3rd book.
