Sci-fi

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · 31 Dec 2018

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - I want SFF with adult women in all stages of life. Or men who refuse to compromise themselves for appearances sake. Give me pregnant heroines, menopausal heroines, women late in life GETTING SHIT DONE like they do!

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · 31 Dec 2018

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult SFF with rich romantic layering. Give me complexity and stakes laced between both the romance and the fantasy conflict. Show me how magic and love work in tandem. Show me passion across galaxies. Light me on fire.

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult Sci Fi that shows other worlds, new forms of life, dark secrets, and technology that inspires both awe and fear. F up my sense of my place in the universe. I LOOOVE tortured antiheroes with a soft spot. No hard military sci fi.

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult SFF - The queerer the better! Sci fi or Fantasy with queerness embedded in culture; SFF that fearlessly reps gender/sexuality spectrum. (I am queer myself and want to see ways cultures could deal with queerness differently from our reality)

I'd love to see an SFF with swoon-worthy romance, the kind filled with angst and stakes #MSWL

#MSWL: YA Sci-Fi's with underrepresented protagonists as well as unexpected antagonists.

I just listened to a story about The Svalbard Global Seed Vault in the Arctic Circle, and now I desperately want to read a SFF that features an intergalactic version of this amazing place. Maybe it’s a heist book?! #mswl

I could really use a near-future SF exploration of the Mariana Trench. (This tweet sponsored by my love of really bizarre ocean life.) #MSWL #amquerying

V for Vendetta @VeroniKaboom · 24 Nov 2018

Another trope I adore from indie rom-coms, weird sci-fi, and obscure non-US TV dramas is the uptight, emotionally/physically repressed person who falls for and pines over the free spirit, without judging, while FS teases mercilessly. Ex: Ins. Jack Robinson & Phryne Fisher. #MSWL

In #sciencefiction wouldn't mind a space survival or new planet survival story. Think Adrift by Rob Boffard or Semiosis. Love stories about crashing or landing on unknown planets and the early days of colonization or the journey. #MSWL

my first time watching fullmetal alchemist is going really well! pic.twitter.com/CLebThNdJZ

now that i’m officially done with FMA:B i just want to say that at the tippy-top of my #mswl are lawful neutral female characters like general olivier armstrong and postcolonial SFF that breaks my heart and puts it back together again

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

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

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

Sam Morgan @samroebuck · 2 Nov 2018

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

Linda (not very spooky) Epstein @LindaEpstein · 26 Oct 2018

REMINDER: I'll be closed to queries after midnight EST October 31st. I'm currently open only to #YA by #ownvoices & #POC authors & I'm looking for realistic contemporary; magical realism; SciFi; speculative fiction; romantic; feminist; or Jewish. #mswl #WeNeedDiverseBooks
