Writing a historical or fantasy novel? Don't forget these items: 1. The patriarchy 2. Horses 3. Swords 4. Masquerade balls 5. Modern hygiene

To add, I'm also looking for more sci-fi too, esp posthumanism, near-future, time travel, parallel universes, smart cyberpunk #mswl

Is it opportunistic that I'd include "historically-realistic fantasy of Native peoples + magic" on my #mswl ? Cuz that's what I just did.

4) And of course I want to hear from more writers from outside the US or part non-Western diaspora. Immigrant/emigrants encouraged. #mswl

3) Military spec fic from a non-soldier perspective (ex medic, mechanic, translator, civilian drawn into conflict) #mswl

2) Awesome lady pirates. Need not be airship ones. Extensive nautical lingo a plus. Think Confessions of Charlotte Doyle but SFF #mswl

What I'm looking for: 1) edgy & intellectual sci-fi about post-humanism and AI. #mswl
