Guys, I'm sorry, but I really don't represent thrillers. #mswl #pubtip

#mswl: Don't you think the heist story Madison Ferris suggests here sounds fun? Have you written something similar in an SFF setting? Please send it on! nytimes.com/2020/08/25/t-m…

Another thing I generally dislike: novels set in the afterlife. I feel they lack tension. #mswl

#mswl: I'm not a fan of dystopias where the heroes know they're in a dystopia. I do like dystopias that look like utopias, especially high-tech ones (Brazil, Upload).

Worldbuilding that gets creepier the more you think about it is one of my favorites.

Also: really fun history. I'd love to see more business history. Has anyone written a great book about the rise and fall of mass market paperbacks? #mswl

#mswl request: #sff that's fun and light and voice-driven, with great characters, and maybe a little romance, and a really creative setting and plot. Send it on, folks; I'm getting caught up on my #query inbox. Bonus points if your characters get to leave their houses.

I'm noticing a lot of queries in my inbox for things I don't represent, such as historical novels with no fantasy or science fiction elements, thrillers, and novellas in any genre (except for existing clients). I will not take on new clients with these kinds of books. #mswl

I would love to see a book proposal for a non-fiction book about the history and politics of the concept of “nice.” #mswl

I am a huge, huge fan of historical fantasy, especially from unexpected places and times (like @kateheartfield's Armed in Her Fashion). I don't represent historical fiction with no fantastic elements. #MSWL

I say this every #mswl, but I never get enough hard sf. I especially like hard sf based on the unexpected sciences, like @SueBurkeSpain's Semiosis series, based on her study of botany.

Happy #mswl day! I would like some genuinely fun history (not historical fiction!) for the general reader. I love "history of an idea" books.

I enjoy clean, transparent prose in the fiction I represent. I'm less of a fan of the heavily literary (though there are always exceptions!) #mswl

Just a reminder: I'm a huge fan of historical fantasy, especially if you've got a setting I haven't seen before. #MSWL
