Will 2017 be the year we finally get our mitts on The Winds of Winter? At this point, even Bran Stark’s third eye couldn’t see if the answer is “hell yes!” or “keep waiting.” But fret not, avid scifi and fantasy readers. The year still holds plenty of promise, as demonstrated by our gargantuan list of most-anticipated books.
(Keep in mind that publication dates are always subject to change, even for authors whose names aren’t George R.R. Martin.)
We already created a full list for January, which is stuffed with tempting entries—including a short story collection from the late Terry Pratchett, featuring works dating back to his teen years. Start your new collection with these picks, some of which are already available in stores.
