Someone needs to write this!!! https://t.co/QNuqGOn1hq

#MSWL : THIS. Oh—and the two boys, the girl, her puppy, & her cat are fighting facism on a futuristic space colony (… https://t.co/z75jXYcBJv

#MSWL : a thorny, complex political #SFF novel featuring social upheaval and protagonists with an Obama-Biden relationship dynamic

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · Jan 1

@KateElliottSFF let alone his historical, extrabiblical significance

@CarlyASilver @KateElliottSFF Now I want a pulls-no-punches historical fantasy about Nebuchadnezzar for the new year—would be fitting. #MSWL

I want a Game of Thrones-esque book set in a world inspired by 1930s Asia and gang families and magic.

#MSWL SO HARD, GUYS. (And once this is a book, let's send it to EVERY FILM STUDIO IN HONG KONG.) https://t.co/vTBjJXF3yr

Still thinking about when I get to drink some soju with my new gay space uncles. https://t.co/0O9OFaW2UA

@dongwon Umm... #MSWL ? (Specifically, lit agent goes drinking w/ gay space uncles, is roped into questionable shenanigans, tries not to die)

Writers, especially ones from marginalized communities, send me your angriest stories. Ones about resistance and change and fighting back.

#mswl : #SFF sees many leaders who go out in a blaze of glory. Give me their long-suffering second-in-command who has to pick up the pieces.

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · Sep 13

#SFF #MSWL : Give me civilizations faced with a sudden need to modernize, and how they negotiate the weight of centuries of history/tradition

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · Sep 13

#SFF #MSWL : give me MCs who don't have/can't rely on natural talent—who've had to work harder and smarter to earn what they've accomplished.

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · Sep 13

#SFF #mswl Nerdy MCs! I'd love a scholar/archaeologist/scientist hero whose main goal isn't saving the world (even if they end up doing so).

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · Jun 30

Give me a #SFF society with a moral code materially different from ours, made believable through worldbuilding & character development #MSWL

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · Jun 30

#SFF #MSWL : Give me the aftermath of revolution, the growing pains of a new world order. "Winning was easy, young man. Governing's harder."

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · Jun 30

#SFF #MSWL : Innovators who have to deal with the serious societal ramifications of their inventions (think Einstein and nuclear technology).

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · Jun 30

I RT'd this before but it's #MSWL day so I'll do it again. Yes! This! https://t.co/pP0MP1LKTA

This is why I ❤️ WOLF HALL—give me the #SFF version of Cromwell (who quietly runs the show) instead of Henry VIII! #MSWL @LeonHusock @navahw

The story of hundreds of thousands of medieval texts, rescued from jihadist destruction https://t.co/xbAmM141qF https://t.co/GHyWQmkzTy

Fascinating story of heritage & cultural identity. (pen > sword, truly) Someone write a #SFF novel about this! #MSWL https://t.co/mSUYol7wZp

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · Mar 22

Not an official #MSWL , but what about a book in which medieval marginalia come to life?! I NEED a goat-snail in my life!

Co-sign. (Cosine?) Give me obscure mythological beasties dreamed up by bored/mischievous monks! #MSWL https://t.co/fgQqJmkWLB

Best take on #HP Native appropriation controversy I've seen. I want the version @nkjemisin describes to exist. #MSWL https://t.co/iiSrdraIXX

A dentist steals paradoxes and hides them inside a marble chapel.

.@MagicRealismBot is pure gold and I actually really want to read this novel. (A dentist, though?) #mswl https://t.co/NSVeT8VELs

We need your help! SF novels by women (other than Leigh Brackett) set wholly or partially on Mars? We're struggling here...

I'm drawing a blank, but... #MSWL ! https://t.co/nCpAJjzSyl
