What 2014 books will be nominated?

As a reminder of what 2014 books were well-regarded, we could look at the Locus recommended reading list, which lists the best books or stories in several categories, according to Locus' reviewers and editors:
I'm afraid I haven't read enough 2014 books to have an educated opinion...

Annihilation by Vandermeer and The Martian by Andy Weir will and probably should both get on for Best Novel.

In Novels category, Ancillary Sword, Ann Leckie, The Three-Body Problem, Cixin Liu, The Peripheral by William Gibson.

I just finished Tom Kratman's Big Boys Don't Cry. As a novella, I'd be shocked if his wasn't considered in that category.

I haven't made up my mind completely yet, but I think my nominations will include at least the following works:
- The Three-Body Problem, Liu Cixin
- Dark Eden, by Chris Beckett (this is a 2012 book, but was published in the USA for the first time in 2014, so it is eligible and it is an awesome awesome novel)
- The Abyss Beyond Dreams, Peter F. Hamilton
- The Rhesus Chart, Charles Stross
- The Regular, Ken Liu (originally published in Upgrade, ed. Neil Clarke; now available in Forever 1, which is available as a free download http://neil-clarke.com/the-future-is-forever/)
- Unlocked: An Oral History of Haden's Syndrome - John Scalzi (Tor.com, http://www.tor.com/stories/2014/05/u...me-john-scalzi)
- Yesterday's Kin, Nancy Kress (Tachyon Publications)
- Sixth of the Dusk - Brandon Sanderson (included in Shadows Beneath)
- Ghostreaper, or, Life After Revenge, Tim Pratt (Nightmare Magazine, http://www.nightmare-magazine.com/fi...after-revenge/)

- Report Concerning the Presence of Seahorses On Mars, Pat Cadigan (included in Reach for Infinity, ed. Jonathan Strahan)
- Hotshot, Peter Watts (included in Reach for Infinity, ed. Jonathan Strahan)

I wasn't clear that my previous post was meant to predictions not my personal picks. I didn't read a lot of last year's fiction releases but I would delighted to see Wolves by Simon Ings make the novel list. But as a British release that's highly unlikely. I'd also be happy to see Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel make the list. But it is probably too mainstream for Hugo nominators.
