Sci-fi

Would love to see SFF set on alternate worlds with complex, totally different/ new ways of imagining government... #MSWL

Fantasy & Sci-Fi: I gravitate towards fantasy that's very much grounded in the real world, and SF that's light on the sci, heavy on the fi. Give me characters I can't let go of with rich world building and a runaway plot. #mswl

Hey! I am still open to queries! You should absolutely send them my way.
Here's what I'm really hungry for at the moment (#mswl);
-Epic epic epic fantasy
-Big ole space opera
-Techno thrillers
-All of the above told from non-traditional POV's

I love new, different worlds in fantasy or sci-fi. Magic is cool. Science is sweet. Aliens? Not so much. But, you could surprise me. What about witches? I'm still looking for a witch story. #MG #YA #A #MSWL

I also happen to have a totally empty #query inbox as of 1.00am EST, and--two months into reading #manuscripts--still am on the hunt for a good thriller, women's fiction, and adult #fantasy and #scifi. I love good espionage, puzzles, and coding, & excellent female heroes. #MSWL

A type of primary relationship I’d love to see more in #SFF: comrades-in-arms—not only warrior/soldier siblings-in-battle, but also people fighting for common causes in politics, in the workplace, in civil society, &c. who believe viscerally in their purpose & in each other #MSWL

3. A truly epic space opera. Either one with fascinating and unique worldbuilding (think THE STARS ARE LEGION or A DOOR INTO OCEAN) or one that's just plain fun as well as galaxy-spanning (think the Vorkosigan books). #MSWL

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · Oct 10

A delightful conversation with an editor this morning has reminded me of some things I'd really like to see #MSWL:
1. A prison-abolitionist utopian SF novel. Think THE DISPOSSESSED but specifically about restorative justice.
2. A really good first contact book like THE SPARROW.

Netflix landed the rights after a heated bidding war that attracted many of the major studios bit.ly/2CCkkDe

A friendly reminder that if you have a John Henry but SFF, or any other SFF take on American folklore, feel free to drop me a line. #MSWL

H. McCorkle @McCorkle_Editor · Oct 7

Agents, I have updated my #MSWL on my site. If you have something that matches my current wishlist, feel free to send it my way! enigmaticeditor.blogspot.com/p/wish-list.ht…

After Trump’s bizarre statement about exchanging love letters w/ Kim Jong Un, I can’t help thinking it‘d be an interesting SFF novel idea: 2 unstable dictators w/ huge egos inherit world-ending arsenals & a fraught standoff, begin a diplomatic correspondence, & fall in love

Still hungering for a really wonderful #thriller (any! but if you've got a female-led one, send it without hesitation!), and some really good adult #fantasy and #scifi. In #YA, don't hesitate: contemporary, boy voices, romance. Anything NEW and FRESH and EPIC. #MSWL
