Definitely Depth Charging Ice Planet Goth by Andrez Bergen. Surprised he isn't more known.

I have at least two. The 4th Fairyland book by Cat Valente because the last one ended on a cliff! Also Abracadaver by Laure Resnick, the 7th Esther Diamond book, the 6th The Misfortune Cookie also ended on a mini cliff.
I will expand your TBR pile.

Are we getting The Skull Throne in 2014?
(Brett's 4th)

A. J. Dalton's Tithe of the Saviours.
I'm also adding Melanie Rawn's Glassthorns - Thornlost.

When does this post go on the main site?  I really like looking at a compiled list and re-structuring my reading to match...that is of course until I get sidetracked by shiny objects.

My list of SFF so far, in no particular order:

Half a King by Joe A.
Words of Radiance by Brandon S. (Going to read the first sometime soon, hopefully.)
Prince of Fools by Mark L. (Really excited for this, even if I've only read PoT.)
The Emperor's Blades by Brian S.
The Copper Promise by Jennifer W.
The Casual Angel by Hannu R.
The Pillars of Sand by Mark T. B.
The Book of the Crowman by Joseph D'Lacey.
The Lascar's Dagger by Glenda L.
Depth Charging Ice Planet Goth by Andrez B.
The Shadow Throne by Django W.
The Fool's Assassin by Robin H.
The Waking Engine by David E.
The Law of the Wolf by S.A. Hunt

Notable exclusions because I don't know:
The Bastards and the Knives by Scott L.
The Thorn of Emberlain by Scott L.
The Doors of Stone by Patrick R. (Read the prologue to NotW last night. Amazing!)
Be Careful What You Wish For by Jeffrey A. (Historical Fiction)
Jay Posey Duskwalker Book 2 (No set date)

And Marc, can we not have a book that *might* come out during 2014. Let's have a list of stuff already set in stone.

Gawd, I forgot The Fell Sword, Miles Cameron!

Rothfuss's 3rd next year? Such wishful thinking :) he's having a new baby... probably 2017, or something...

I'd also add The book of Luce, L. R Fredericks, but I don't think she's exactly fantasy...

My top 3 are:

1, Fall of Light (Kharkanas Trilogy) - Steven Erikson
2, Words of Radiance (Stormlight Archive) - Brandon Sanderson
3, The Emperor's Blades (Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne) - Brian Staveley
I saw them on the shores
the deepening pits of their gaze
vowed immortal war
against the sighing calm
of Jaghut seas . . .

I was wondering the same thing. Chill, if you're not going to type the full name, you should probably choose the surname.

A few more I haven;t seen mentioned:

The Fool's Assassin by Robin Hobb!
Tower Lord by Anthony Ryan,
the final Locke and Key book by Joe Hill,
The Magician's Land by Lev Grossman.
Mirror Sight by Kristen Britain
The Old Empire by Anna Krashina

I don't know. I think my list had that as it is, so I was too lazy to look up some of the author's surnames. Most are big names, though. Should be known.
