New poll - Eager meter 2015

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

As usual, let's do a quick return to the last poll first.

My question, related to a top list of publishers based on the awards they won,  was: "Is the publisher of a book influencing your acquisitions?". A great number of you, fellow Fantasy readers answered... 

And the results are:
No - 78 %
Yes - 21%

It's pretty clear, it's not really a factor. The push the analysis further, I'll return soon with polls on your favorite publishers and even more questions tackling the publisher subject.

For now, it's time for a new poll and a classic one at that.


We now have a pretty good idea of the list of Fantasy novels with a 2015 release date.  Among this list, there's several eagerly awaited books form authors.of renown. It's time for the eager meter poll, 2015 edition.

The last years winners were:
2014 - Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson
2013 - a Memory of Light by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
2012 - Forgot to poll...

For the poll itself, I won't the whole list I have gathered but the most likely contenders in my humble opinion. There's two books in the same series by Abercrombie... I'm not sure someone will pick Half a War but still... Here's the list. You can pick more than one for the poll.
