And across genres and age ranges, I'm especially fond of SFF (including horror) with deep roots in folklore and culture, casually queer stories, and beautiful prose paired with high, commercial stakes. I can't wait to read your words! #MSWL

—Mystery and horror in certain genres (In mystery, think cozies or women’s fiction-adjacent, instead of hard-boiled detective stories; in horror, think Hill House, not Halloween).

—Character-driven sci-fi and fantasy. Send your sweeping, sexy Kushiel’s Dart-style epics, please!

When they say love is eternal, they're talking about Joe and Nicky. pic.twitter.com/QIx9hMgazR

I know I’m a year late to this party, but having *finally* seen OLD GUARD, all I want in 2022 is a queer SFF with MC’s that give me Joe and Nicky vibes #mswl

Queer YA genre fiction of any kind. Fantasy, Mystery, Thriller (I didn't know I liked thrillers, but SURRENDER YOUR SONS got me this year), Sci-fi, Romance, Historical, Horror (as long as it's not too grisly; think Hill House, not Halloween). Most especially from QBIPOC #MSWL

I would truly love an SFF, YA or Adult, with queerness so baked into the world à la She-Ra that nobody even blinks. There’s danger and end-of-the-world stakes and messy relationships galore, but that particular threat is non-existant. This has been today’s #MSWL

I don’t even know what I mean when I say I want a YA or Adult SFF with the vibe of the “Rain On Me” video, but I want it #MSWL

(Also, at first I misheard the lyrics as “I’d rather be drunk but at least I’m alive,” and thought that was a bold truth)

YA or adult or crossover, SFF or contemporary or romance, I don’t care; just send me your books starring queer, exceptionally charming disasters #MSWL

I’m gonna need somebody to query me a YA Sci-fi set at an intergalactic royal court where everyone basically dresses in Guo Pei #MSWL

Happy Friday, I have very particular #MSWL's today—Twitter, please deliver 🙏🏼

1. I'd KILL for a San Junipero-ish YA: queer sci-fi with high emotional stakes and a sweet ending
2. Hear me out, a YA Red Tent (midwifery and ancient rituals of womanhood) set IN SPACE
