On the subject of alternate histories, I'd love to see one where the Vikings stayed and colonized North America (set in modern-day). #MSWL

#MSWL addendum: I don't really want the book with the MC who grifts people/hustles pool to be ABOUT that. It's just what he does for money.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 2d

#MSWL a YA book where the main character hustles pool.

a lady drug lord who dresses in men's clothing and falls in love with all her brother's love interests How is this… https://t.co/p68MWkx1px

Give me this YA book. #MSWL https://t.co/ckJB1CZQoq

#mswl opposite-sex best friends who are just friends. Neither is interested in the other romantically, they don't realize it later, nada.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 6d

To clarify my last #MSWL tweet about characters who are obnoxious shits, they should still be good people at heart.

#MSWL Books where the MCs are just...shits. Have you seen Yu Yu Hakusho? Give me Yusuke and Kuwabara. @DreadfulComics gets what I mean.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 1w

Reading @MaryRobinette 's Glamorist books and I've realized fiction with men and women with deep levels of mutual respect is just my jam.

#MSWL . They don't have to be romantically involved, either. Clarke and Bellamy on The 100 is another good one. https://t.co/t8OgnSxLML

#MSWL I would totally read a YA fantasy inspired by the story of Ned Kelly (Australian historical figure, check him out).

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 2w

Do not send me thinly veiled books about Trump. I'm not interested. #MSWL

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 3w

#MSWL Sand-ships. A large desert and ships that sail on it. Yes, I know it's been done before. I don't care. It's awesome.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 4w

#MSWL for Jewish religion/culture/mythology-inspired fantasy, a la @swan_tower 's Lady Trent series (or at least the religion in it).

You know what's a really cool fantasy world? Kiki's Delivery Service.

#MSWL for this kind of fantasy where magic/magic users are a known/accepted part of life but not so common as to be ordinary.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jun 9

I'm not really interested in domestic abuse YA books. I'm not saying these books shouldn't be published; they're just not what I want. #MSWL

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jun 6

#MSWL books where organized religion is a positive, but not dominant, force in the MC's life. Especially YA books.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · May 9

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.
