    The two that I’m looking forward to the most are Scalzi’s The Last Emperox and Martha Well’s Network Effect. There are several more that you showed that I’m also anticipating.

  2. In addition to the books listed, I want to read the final books in the trilogies by R.F. Kuang (“The Burning God”), S.A. Chakraborty (“The Empire of Gold”); Megan O’Keefe’s “Protectorate #2); and, the rest of “The Nine Realms” quartet by Sarah Kozloff.

  3. I’m very much looking forward to Anne Bishop’s upcoming Black Jewels novel, “The Queen’s Bargain.” I’m nervous because she’s done some things with that series that I really dislike, but also I freaking love the world, so I’m excited to read a new story set there.

  4. I’m looking forward to The Glass Hotel by St. John Mandel. I love her writing and Station Eleven blew me away. While I expect her next one to be very different, I also expect her to weave an engrossing story!

  5. Noneofyourbusiness /

    I’m looking forward to the continuation of Seanan McGuire’s “Wayward Children” series!

  6. Had no idea David Mitchell had a new one coming out. Definitely looking forward to Utopia Avenue. Also, A Peculiar Peril by Jeff VanderMeer.

    All of the titles sound great though. Amazing covers!

  7. Lady Morar /

    Nora Jemisin’s work has always been good so far, and I’m excited for “The City We Became,” which is an expansion of a short story I heard her read!

  8. SandyG /

    I’m looking forward to Smoke Bitten by Patricia Briggs

  9. Paul Connelly /

    In addition to Harrow the Ninth, Network Effect, Piranesi and Shorefall, I’m looking forward to Nghi Vo’s Empres of Salt an Fortune, Libba Bray’s The King of Crows, Deeplight by Frances Hardinge, The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso, The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence, Comet Weather by Liz Williams, Anthropocene Rag by Alex Irvine, and (with dread) The Tyrant Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson. Also concerned that my local bookstore is having trouble getting The Broken Heavens by Kameron Hurley, which tops my most wanted list. It just came out so it should not be in short supply.

  10. The Distinguished Professor /

    What I’m most looking forward to is the paperback edition of George Martin’s Dunk and Egg collection A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, finally in February.

  11. John Smith /

    I am looking forward to the latest book of the “Hell Divers” series by Nicholas Sansbury Smith when I can get it on audiobook CDs!

  12. Lessee, Shorefall and Network Effect from the list above.
    From my own list, I’ve got ReV by Madeline Ashby, Anthropecene Rag by Alex Irvine, Agatha H. and the Siege of Mechanicsburg: Girl Genius, Book Four by Phil Foglio, Kaja Foglio and Paladin’s Grace by T. Kingfisher.

  13. Beyond Network Effect, the Addison,, Riviera Gold (Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes), Return of the Thief by Megan Whalen Turner.

  14. Sethia /

    What a great list! I CAN’T wait for Stormlight 4 (Rhythm of War) coming in November!

  15. 3 that pop to my mind (I’m sure I’m forgetting some):

    The Trouble With Peace by Joe Abercrombie
    The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin
    The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty

  16. David K Miller /

    I’m looking forward to anything by Jemisin and Scalzi, two very different authors. I read the first Murderbot novella, and the rest are on my to-read queue, so I’ll eventually get around to reading this latest entry. And, I’ll read anything by Gene Wolfe.

  17. Flossie Arend /

    I CANNOT WAIT for The City We Became. I’m a born-and-raised NYer and I loved the short story, it seems like the perfect springtime in NYC book to read this year.

  18. Arik Yaacob /

    Can’t wait for The City We Became.

  19. Andy Eaton /

    I’m most looking forward to Harrow the Ninth. Gideon was by far my favorite book from last year. Last Emperox, The City We Became and Network Effect are also in my to be preordered pile.

  20. I’m really looking forward to N.K. Jemisin’s newest book, The City We Became!

  21. I’m really looking forward to reading The City We Became!

  22. Christopher S /

    The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follett is released this year!
