Highly anticipated fantasy releases in 2012

A Listmania! list by Calibandar "calibandar" (Netherlands)
The list author says: "Couple of major epic Fantasy books that I am really anticipating have been moved to 2013, but 2012 still offers a lot of great looking releases. There is some Science fiction and even a horror title mixed in with this."
