This song came out the year before I was born, and I'm disappointed none of it has come true yet. But at least I can #mswl it? Send me some of that optimistic, aspirational sci-fi and fantasy please. Don't let Susan down! youtu.be/46FOlF5bZPQ

I absolutely believe you can write deep, thoughtful sci-fi and fantasy with lovable characters and a happy ending. Exhibit 1: Terry Pratchett. #mswl

I think the issue of gun violence will have to be faced on many fronts. For those of us who work in the arts, it means depicting guns as tools, rather than as magical artifacts that grant power and charisma. #mswl

Sorry, I don't represent women's fiction. I just don't have the eye for it! #MSWL

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · Jan 12

That said, a really cool novel about autonomous cars would be fun to see. #mswl

What I mean by hard-SF: your worldbuilding is based on an extrapolation from modern technology or scientific knowledge. This would include botany/biology/materials science, too! #mswl

Have you written a really great hard-sf novel with lovable characters in it? Especially if it's set in a future that isn't dystopian? I never get enough of those. Please send it on! #MSWL

Sorry, but I don't represent historical fiction. Please send me fun history or history-inspired fantasy, though! #MSWL

Tough sells for me right now: lone-wolf vigilante heroes. Dystopias in general. #MSWL

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 17 Oct 2017

The biggest reason I reject manuscripts? I didn't connect with the characters. #MSWL

Belated #Mswl: I'd like to represent more history. And I love business and economic history.

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 12 Sep 2017

SFF with interesting and unusual takes on AI #MSWL

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 12 Sep 2017

SFF that addresses climate change directly, especially when the heroes work together to find solutions #MSWL

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 12 Sep 2017

Aspirational SFF, like a modernized Star Trek TOS. #mswl

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 12 Sep 2017

I never get enough hard science fiction, especially written by experts. #MSWL

Bring on the radical empathy, optimism, and human connection. Sci-fi means the future can be better. #mswl
