A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: Being the Adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall, and His Squire, Egg (The Tales of Dunk and Egg, #1-3) by George R.R. Martin.
Oh, good. That's soooo much better than a sequel to ASoIaF. I bet there'll also be a graphic novel. :rolleyes::p

I saw it elsewhere that the 5th book in Daniel Abraham's The Dagger and the Coin could be out in 2015. Nothing official, though.
There are also rumors that J.V Jones might publish her grand finale to Sword of shadows. Probably wishful thinking but hey, weirder things have happened. We landed a man on the moon, after all.

The Tales of Dunk and Egg, #1-3

I am afraid if it is the first 3 tales, then it will only be a re-edition of the 3 stories already available in the anthologies "Legends" ("The Hedge Knight"), "Legends II" ("The Sworn Sword") and "Warriors" ("The Mistery Knight"). So a bit disappointing for me.

No release date confirmed yet, but "The Aeronaut's Windlass" by Jim Butcher should be out this year.

Best regards,
Andy

I think there already is :p
There are speculations about ASOIAF #6, of course, but no date as of yet.

If there's new development with these let me know :) I'm also waiting for an official date for Sword of Destiny by Sapkowski.

Yeah, it's a repackaging of previously published material - nothing new. Best I can tell anyway.
Exactly right. They have never before been collected in one place in English though, yet they are collected in German. Weird. Nonetheless I like that they are collecting them now, so I can buy them in one book instead of spending money on few anthologies.

Ugh, no JV Jones. No R. Scott Bakker. :(
No official dates that's why :(

Here's hoping he doesn't screw this one up
I can get behind that sentiment.

2 books by Abercrombie in the same year belonging to the same trilogy :D this is great news!

I just want Butcher's Dresden book. It drives me crazy to wait all year :(

Excited about The Demon Cycle - hope I love it. I'm not sure I will.

ROTHFUSS!!! WHERE ARE YOU???

Very excited about Hobb's new one and also VERY VERY concerned.

Not a fantasy or a sci-fi, more like a horror/paranormal/thriller, but new John Cleaver book (#4) by Dan Wells is coming out June 16th by Tor.

Apparently, just like he announced Dan will be writing a new trilogy.

@Danica maybe you want to know? I know moonspawn has already seen it, because I have him as a friend on GR.

I want to share the list with my homies on the Amazon fantasy and sci-fi forums, with attribution to you, but that still feels like stealing so I keep mentioning the site instead.
