It would be reasonable to exclude 2015 publications which are relatively minor updates of previous editions. In my opinion this applies clearly to Williams (for the reason already given), fairly clearly to Moskalenko, and not necessarily to Houska (there's a lot of new work in her 2015 edition). I believe Avrukh's update also has a lot of new work but I haven't seen it for myself.

Isn't the Killer Dutch a thinly disguised (and perhaps marginally updated) reprint of Williams' self-published book by the same name from a couple of years ago?

I forgot to announce the dates this time.

As per tradition, nominations will be closed on January 31st. I will set up a poll shortly after January 31st, and the voting will close at the end of February 29th.


Time for a poll?  Still plenty of time to get the voting done by February 29th.

Smerdon Scandanavian,
Williams' Killer Dutch, - I've started playing the classical dutch set up because of this book (and am having a blast).
Houska: Opening Repertoire: The Caro-Kann.
Gawain Jones' 2 books on the Dragon. I loved playing the Dragon after reading Ward's books...and these are calling me back!
Martin Lokander Open Games - i really liked this book. First one i've read on open games which i felt in tune with. Not too cluttered with lines or diagrams while offering plenty of bite and explanation.

Traditionally, ChessPub only focuses on Opening Books.


Can I break tradition and nomininate

Chess Structures - A Grandmaster Guide by Mauricio Flores Rios published by Quality chess?
  

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations

I'm finding it difficult to nominate any titles just yet as i've liked a lot of the opening books i bought this year, and i cant remember which are from 2015!

Everyman in particular have released a lot of good books during this period.

When is the final date for nominating?

The Even More Flexible French, Moskalenko (20th July 2015)


Isn't that just an update of The Flexible French?

I think Berg's volume III on the French might be an eligible candidate though, "15 May 2015" according to the bookdepository. I don't have it myself, so this is not a nomination, unless someone else wants it to be...

Well. Berg has written a very good book so I will definitely nominate (have the book):

Nomination:
Grandmaster Repertoire 16 - The French Defence Volume Three by Emanuel Berg
Quality Chess, March 2015
