I'd love to see more mixed media novels like Illuminae, Sadie, and Rules for Vanishing. #mswl

I've got a #mswl fever and the only prescription is more chrome-ass bitches in my querybox when I re-open. #shinyandchrome #furiosa…

Bitch. STILL my superhero name. @SamuraiKnitter

The following data relies heavily on the work of the blogger at "Her Majesty's Jewel Box". If you swing by there (I will be linking), BE ADVISED THE BLOGGER WANTS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS POLITICAL STUFF THAT IS NOT WHY SHE IS THERE so take it easy.

#MSWL I would love a political fantasy or SF novel that pays as much attention to the symbolic meaning of clothing, gestures, and etiquette as the Queen of England does her brooches, and the plot hinges on this. The Goblin Emperor meets Ancillary Sword, I suppose?

I have a long-standing #mswl for RMS TItanic retellings. I was obsessed with it growing up: I listened to A Night to Remember at least 100 times, read the book more than once, played the computer game (yes, there's computer game!), etc. So, send me your Titanic-inspired ms!

Maybe you have an epistolary space book?
Oh man, a novel a la THE OLD EQUATIONS by Jake Kerr would be bomb.

I'd love to see some non-Western space opera or military science fiction. NINEFOX GAMBIT is a great example. #mswl

#mswl I'd also really love a fantasy similar to Tanya Huff's FIFTH QUARTER. Assassins, magic, forbidden romance, and conflicting loyalties, oh my!

#mswl I'd love to see a wildfire story. I'm equal opportunity on the setting -- campers/hikers? Surburanites? I want to see survival and moving on. Also, I'm from CA, so wildfires affecting urban settings is something I'm used to seeing (alas).
