World Con 2014 in London book recommendations

Planning on going to the worldcon hosted in Docklands next august, anyone else going?

Anyway attendees get to vote for the Hugo award for best novel of 2013 so whats the hot stuff to read this year in the speculative fiction world. Warren Ellis's Gun Machine sounds like it could be intriguing. As does The Teleportation Accident. Ideally I would like books that have audio versons available, but that's probably a long shot as they often seem to come out a few years later.

Thinking about

ORson Scott Card's latest Ender book (I love the Ender's series, haven't started the formic wars yet)
Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the ENd of the Lane
Whitstable by Stephen Volk is the only one to get 5 stars in this months SFX and its a novella
Stephen King has a sequel to The Shining coming soon, is his stuff past its sell by date yet or is he still churning out quality?
The Long War by Baxter and Pratchett but haven't read their first yet and don't know if it'd work as a standalone.
Wayward journey.
