Same here! I need to get a hardcover version, so it will go with the rest of my DT collection.


Also the other few books in Kathleen and Michael Gear's People of the Longhouse series, and the next ones in Contact: Battle for America. There are one or two out, but I like to get these in paperback so I have a good break book at work.

I hadn't heard that King was making another DT novel, that's good news.

Amen. Of course, A Memory of Light will come out close to schedule, only the Great Unknowable knows when GRRM will get another Fire and Ice book out. If Dance is any indication, the next one will be out in 2017. *feh*

Authors I'm always happy to see putting out books - Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, Harry Turtledove, Terry Pratchett, and Brandon Sanderson. Blackout by Mira Grant. The next Clockwork Century book by Cherie Priest. Walking Dead Compendium Volume 2.

This. Along with waiting for him to continue the Stormlight Chronicles once he's done with that. The first book was amazing.

The Magicians/The Magician King by Les Grosman.
These books were really great. Waiting for the 3rd book of the Trilogy due next year... or so. Its modern fantasy, but a bit more mature then the usual teen-literature.

Inheritance cycle by Chris Paolini. I know this one just came out a couple months ago. Its in my reading queue, but just havnt got to it yet. Tempted to re-read Brisingr to catch up... but that only pushes Inheritance further down the Queue.

Dresden Files
. I love all these books. Its pure pulp fiction. I'll usually read Jim Butcher after a long, serious novel to let my brain rest. The next one "cold Days" is due out in a few months.

theses and the next book in the Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson.


although i have started to think that the Winds of Winter will never be released ( just becuse it took almost 5 years for A Feast of Crows, 7 years for A Dance of Dragons. at this rate he will probably die before he finishes.

I'm hoping that Winds will be an easier write because Martin fixed a lot of narrative problems in Dance (timeline issues). We'll just have to wait and see.
