Icona 📚 @IconawritesCottagecore horror is going to become a huge genre. As the climate crisis worsens and we grow ever more alienated from the natural world, we’re going to start seeing grinning faces in gnarled trees and hearing eldritch gods of the forest in the rustle of autumn leaves.
Yes, and also #mswl
[kie.ran] @danblackroydFriend breakups (I mean good, longterm, very close and intimate friendships) are, in my experience, much more emotionally devastating than romantic breakups. And yet, unlike romantic relationships, we have almost no socialization (even in media images) on how to navigate them.
The thing I want when I say climate fiction, eco-fiction, even more than work that imagines futures, is work that grapples with the overwhelming grief & anger, confusion, guilt, of being a person now. It's crushing, & I crave the mirror of fiction. #mswl
It's #MSWL day! I want queer, feminist, literary horror that takes elements of being human, plays up the nightmare, and teaches us something about ourselves (think Carmen Maria Machado, FEVER DREAM, THE NEED).
Megan Amram @meganamramdon't forget the ladies of horror this month. watch RAW, written and directed by the effortlessly cool julia ducournau pic.twitter.com/EepKmdvJzP
So many faves in this list! RAW and THE INVITATION esp. Also, women writing horror novels (adult & YA), that's a forever #mswl for me.

#MSWL send me this multiple POV psychological suspense / domestic noir
I recently rec'd (& signed) a query that had me suddenly mindful of the small but wasteful habits I've picked up in the name of convenience. Inspired by and seeking work that inspires real-world change #MSWL. (graphic c/o @soumeya_b)
Jeff VanderMeer @jeffvandermeerHoly crap--got a sneak peek at the NYTBR review of Borne that runs May 7 and it's a rave too. Snippet below. Wow. A little overwhelmed. pic.twitter.com/pMF4olQUBZ
Eco-fiction for the win! #MSWL
