Following up on my #MSWL thread, some books I've read in the past year (not my clients!) that I've really loved:

SEA OF RUST -- postapocalyptic robots at war (way cooler than that sounds). What happens after the robot apocalypse?

There's been a request for a #MSWL now that I'm re-opening to queries. So, a thread on what I most want to see. (This is NOT EXHAUSTIVE! I'm open to all kinds of adult SFF.)

I want, like, a really beautiful classic-style fantasy with a quest in it. “You will see rare beasts and have unique adventures” (Auden). #MSWL

Strike in space! twitter.com/trgenovese/sta…

Seriously, somebody write me a near-future strike-in-space book. Like The Martian, but with collective nonviolent resistance. #MSWL

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 12 Jan 2017

I want a medieval thriller. Like Sharon Kay Penman's THE QUEEN'S MAN. #MSWL

P.S. If someone wants to write me SF with the otherworldly creepy beauty of FORBIDDEN PLANET but without the sexism, that'd be great. #MSWL

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 16 Sep 2016

Basically I'm in the mood for some books that inculcate wonder and show luminous beauty. That's what I love about SFF! #MSWL

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 16 Sep 2016

A first-colonization SF novel that captures the transcendent beauty and sadness of leaving Earth. INTERSTELLAR meets FORBIDDEN PLANET #MSWL

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 16 Sep 2016

Whatever the next MISTS OF AVALON is -- beautiful, feminist, Arthurian, smart, instant classic. #MSWL

I reopen to queries Oct 1. I want to see epic and secondworld fantasy and all types of SF. #MSWL

Replying to @hannahnpbowman

Within fantasy, I'd love a beautiful world with beautiful magic. But I also tend toward books that explore the cost of violence. #MSWL
