Terminator: Dark Fate @Terminator

Welcome to the day after Judgment Day. Producer James Cameron returns with director Tim Miller for #TerminatorDarkFate. In theatres 11.1.19. Watch the official trailer now. pic.twitter.com/HB71m1iGty


Here's hoping this movie inspires more studios to fund movies starring women in their 60s hunting monsters

And more writers to send me books where mothers and grandmothers are smart and fierce and capable and the Bad Guys are mutable and complex. #MSWL

Hi! I get this Q a lot, so--

@RossYoon is a nonfiction agency, but I'm expanding my list to include nonfiction + SFF.

Across both, I want to learn surprising things through compelling characters.
For specific examples, check #MSWL

Also on my #MSWL--everyone and their mother is producing/staging/writing adaptations of Twelfth Night

That's great! I love Twelfth Night, you love Twelfth Night, we all love Twelfth Night.

But please, for the love of Jacques, will somebody send me an "As You Like It" adaptation

N. K. Jemisin @nkjemisin

Every time I see another mediocre Europe-based fantasy, I think of how many brilliant non-European fantasies got rejected to make room for it.

Non-European fantasy is on my forever #MSWL.

Please send it to me so I can submit it to the host of editors who tell me regularly how hungry they are for different stories, fresh settings, and fresh points of view.

In the last 2 days, 2 editors have told me they're looking for SFF rooted in Vietnam and more broadly SE Asia.

If that's your book and you're looking for an agent, get in touch!
