Now is as good a time as any to start looking ahead to next year's releases (as if some of us haven't been looking to 2012 releases since last year...

The King's Blood (Dagger and the Coin #2) by Daniel Abraham. My feelings on The Dragon's Path are fairly well known, so at this point, only one other book do I anticipate more...

Caine's Law (Acts of Caine #4) by Matthew Stover

Seven Princes (Book of the Shaper #1) by John R. Fultz - this is a new Epic Fantasy from Orbit, who seems to have a good track record. In their Fall/Winter 2011/2012 catalog this one got a two page spread

A Path to the Coldness of Heart (Dread Empire #8) by Glen Cook

The Wind Through the Keyhole (Dark Tower #4.5) by Stephen King

The Hammer and the Blade (Egil and Nix #1) by Paul S. Kemp - Kemp's first non-shared world novel, I'm really looking forward to this one publishing with Angry Robot

Legend of Eli Monpress by Rachel Aaron - omnibus of the debut trilogy. Seems like a fun set of books.

Cold Days (Dresden Files #14) by Jim Butcher

King of Thorns (Broken Empire #2) by Mark Lawrence

The Daylight War (The Demon Cycle #3) by Peter V. Brett
