#MSWL: secondary world SFF political systems based on historical governments that weren’t quasi-absolute monarchies—e.g. the Japanese shogunate, the Iroquois Confederacy, the Ancient Greek polis, the elected Khans of the Mongol Empire, the city-states of the Aztec Triple Alliance

Hey! #mswl I’m looking for YA sci fi and fantasy, myth or traditional folk tale retelling-especially a Hades and Persephone retelling. Romance is definitely a plus!

Ooh, #mswl day! Right now I’m craving great SF/horror mashups, general dark horror, PI mysteries, gothic suspense, and dark thrillers - YA & adult! Diverse voices always a plus!

Would love to find a compelling YA space opera! The setting, as well as everything that comes with it, has to be well researched. #MSWL

#mswl SFF about mothers or parent figures whose children aren't dead but are still able to go on adventures.

#MSWL - I definitely want more mothers in adult SFF. Also plz show me a pregnant heroine getting stuff IN ORDER (in an explosive fantasy landscape).

Last little toss in for #MSWL tonight, with guidelines on m'blog: bit.ly/2p3a5iO; looking for wide range of #YA & adult fiction!

Want to see some kickass sci-fi and science fantasy, and any epic fantasy that blows my mind with genre-bending world-building. Think HUGE!

#MSWL YA futuristic Sci-Fi, much like Westworld, or maybe something like Pacific Rim! :)

POC & LGBTQ Leverage meets Six of Crows in space. Yes, that's right. In space. Adult or YA SF #MSWL

While financial times may call for a movement to escape reality after the contemporary pulse, I say grasp it. #mswl I'm looking for YA SFF that depicts disparity in wealth. As Mr. Piketty claims, middle class may actually have been an aberration! @nytimes nytimes.com/2018/09/12/bus…

#MSWL: anti-colonialist adult #SFF that’s not just about throwing off the hegemon’s rule, but also the complexities of economic independence, recovering lost cultural heritage, & constituting a government that doesn’t replicate oppressive structures put in place by the colonizer.

#MSWL: adult #SFF where the real enemy isn’t one malicious individual or group—it’s a system, but the toppling of said system would inflict massive collateral damage on unsuspecting innocents. And then, if the revolution succeeds—what happens next?
