I've said this before, but I'd love to see a contemporary YA with an angry girl MC. Someone who's violent rather than meek. #MSWL

Not that it should shy away from showing the problems of this. I'm just tired of YA contemp MCs who fold under verbal assault. #MSWL

#MSWL I also don't really do animal fantasy. Don't get me wrong, I love the classics, but it's not really something I represent.

#MSWL I prefer Balrogs to Aliens, by which I mean something deep and dark buried in the earth from long ago, as opposed to extraterrestrial.

More specifically, I'm looking for culturally heterogenous cities where the main/national culture is non-Western.

Basically any non-Western city with a confluence of Western and Eastern cultures, is what I'm saying. #MSWL

#MSWL an urban fantasy set in Shanghai, or another city with lots of historical cultural heterogeneity. Especially Shanghai, though.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 3w

Every place, from whole countries to small villages, with their own culture also have their own folklore and superstitions, and I want that.

Oh, #MSWL to this whole thread, forgot about that.

#MSWL Mysterious ruins! Particularly where there shouldn't be any (such as previously undiscovered places).

#MSWL Intergalactic assassins! Seriously, though.

#MSWL YA books with a protagonist whose family is in a weird business (eg, running a family spice shop) https://t.co/EMfbhXJ32z

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Mar 27

#MSWL Stories rooted in deep, thorough research, particularly on folklore. Stuff that's as much thesis as it is novel.

I would read the shit out of this. https://t.co/IiV0FRqCs3

Like seriously, please write and send me this book. YA or adult. #mswl

#MSWL I'm always up for a good YA Shakespeare adaptation. Not just the tragedies, either. Comedies, even histories are good.

I can't speak for other people, but what I want in my inbox right now is escapism, not bleak political satire/dystopia. #MSWL

To clarify my #MSWL : I want systems of magic rooted *in* religion (think the Delphic Oracle), not books based on religious stories.
