Sci-fi

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · 23 Sep 2018

It's late on Saturday and I'm thinking about sci fi, fantasy and YA fantasy after reading an epic ton of queries this last week. I'm going to kick your butt a bit here, okay? If you don't want that, scroll on. A thread #MSWL

#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

"Action-packed sci-fi with powerful characters & motivations. Bonus: A big sprawling world." @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

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.
