Tied to that: political/cultural issues related to American life, or life in places over which America casts a shadow #MSWL

Obviously I am incredibly logged on; if you or your book feels at home in Weird/Left Twitter, I bet we would get along #MSWL

I really love ambitious, far-reaching novels with a strong sense of place. Think CITY ON FIRE, or A BRIEF HISTORY OF SEVEN KILLINGS #MSWL

Essays/cultural crit about modern living, particularly if from a perspective that's too often unheard in the flood of Thinkpieces #MSWL

My queries have gotten way more to my taste since I did this, so I figured I'd post again! Here's my #MSWL page. https://t.co/MqIJgA6ncv

Spend the holiday getting your query ready? Check out my @ManuscriptWList page! Would love to see your query #MSWL https://t.co/MqIJgA6ncv

Writers, hello I fleshed out my #MSWL page. I added specifics for #litfic , #NF , favorite books, more! #amwriting https://t.co/MqIJgA6ncv

Periodic #MSWL reminder that I LOVE science/nature writing. If writers like Harari, Kolbert, or Yong are comps to your book, please query!

Erik Hane @erikhane · Apr 6

Do you write about animals/nature like Ed Yong? (No one does but maybe you sort of do?) Hit me up #MSWL

I like when just *one thing* is speculative or surreal. Realist fiction, with maybe one or two subtle "tweaks" to reality #MSWL

Erik Hane @erikhane · Feb 8

I like when folklore, urban legends, myths, or superstitions affect the way a character thinks or a plot progresses #MSWL

Erik Hane @erikhane · Feb 8

This is always a long shot on book twitter but: I was a science editor for a while and really miss it. Send me NF pop science! #MSWL

Erik Hane @erikhane · Feb 8

I know those are "big" books but the idea here is an aesthetic or style match. #MSWL

Erik Hane @erikhane · Feb 8

The Mothers City on Fire Moonglow The Wangs vs. The World The Sympathizer If any are comps for a SPECIFIC, detailed reason, query me #MSWL

Erik Hane @erikhane · Feb 8

#MSWL So much of fiction acquisition is discussion of comp titles. I'd love to see your novel if it might be a logical comp to one of these:

One final thing on fiction, because this happens a lot: I treat ~65K as a min. word count unless there's a strong reason for shorter #MSWL

Oh also: being a gloomy Swede myself, I do love stuff with Scandinavian themes/settings/ideas etc. #MSWL

Erik Hane @erikhane · Jan 3

Anyway, I'm reopened to queries and can't wait to see what y'all have got cookin #MSWL

Erik Hane @erikhane · Jan 3

For NF, I love: -Sportswriting that addresses larger cultural forces -the underbelly of US history -Pop. science, especially biology #MSWL

Erik Hane @erikhane · Jan 3

Fiction that plays with time, form, or perspective: think David Mitchell, or anyone else trying something a little less conventional #MSWL
