The Longlist for the Man Booker Prize 2014 is going to be announced today.

The Guardian talks about some picks they'd like to see on the longlist.

Are there any books that you want to see on the longlist?

I'm not too sure of the nomination criteria, but The Gospel of Loki would be great :) (Assuming it's adult fiction published this year?)

The rules for submission are here at length but in short:

a) Any full-length novel, written originally in English and published in the UK by an imprint formally established in the UK within the prize year is eligible

b) Authors must be living at the time of the award

j) No entry shall be ineligible because its author has won either the Man Booker Prize or any other prize previously

a) To be eligible novels must be published between 1 October 2013 and 30 September 2014 in the UK by an imprint formally established in the UK

I still need to pick this up - looks really good!

Stuck in a spoiler tag in case anyone still wanted to make a guess!

Is it bad that I haven't heard of ANY of these books?
