Okay, so ANNIHILATION was bonkers AF, but I am so here for this weird, genre-bending, totally original sci-fi. #mswl

I would love to see more SFF MG and contemporary YA in my inbox. #MSWL

Guys, I'd REALLY love a YA Altered Carbon—a super-futuristic urban sci-fi that discusses the ethical/moral implications behind technological advancement because I am OBSESSED. #MSWL

So definitely still looking for African-American scifi and fantasy in YA and adult. #mswl #blackpanther

I absolutely believe you can write deep, thoughtful sci-fi and fantasy with lovable characters and a happy ending. Exhibit 1: Terry Pratchett. #mswl

#MSWL Scifi or fantasy:I need the world fully explored/experienced by character.Give me color, mood, flavor.Not enough to just see the differences between this world and yours.Let me walk those streets,smell delicacies, be awed by towers, feel winged creature's wind on my face.

#MSWL If you binge-watched "Altered Carbon" on Netflix and have a SFF mss full of jaw-dropping tech, cool characters, heart-thumping action, & tension that won't let go...

In adult SF/F, i am very interested in emic worldbuilding. Make me believe the universe in terms of the people in it. Not from me, live reader in 2018 #MSWL

There are so many things about Black Panther that I loved, but one of my favorites was the depth of the worldbuilding, and how we saw what life was like without the influence of colonization. I would love to see a SFF project that grapples with similar questions. #MSWL

Ali Herring @HerringAli · Feb 21

Would love commercial high concept #MG, written in a literary style, that explores some important emotional competency for the characters (death, loss, catastrophe, violence, race, differences/disability, social justice, growing up, etc) contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. #MSWL

Elders who contribute meaningfully, whose experience & wisdom are respected. Collective policymaking (even in monarchies).

Just because Western (esp. American) narratives default to youthful, heroic individualism doesn’t mean it’s the only way to build a protagonist.

Domesticated species, architecture, etc. that make sense for the terrain/biome depicted. Even—or rather, especially—in #SFF, consistency in worldbuilding makes a story that much better.

Yes, I want more battle rhinoceroses. I admit it. #MSWL
