One #MSWL item I really hope someone picks up on is a Black version of UTOPIA AVENUE feat. Magical Realism in Motown or the golden age of Rap. MR/Fabulist or Contemporary Fantasy stories based in historical music scenes like UTOPIA AVENUE shouldn't be limited to white writers.

I sort of just realized that, at least for now, I’m not looking for anything pirate or mermaid or Atlantis related. Basically, if it’s in the sea, it’s not for me. Unless it’s Snowpiercer on a boat.

This is a friendly anti-#MSWL post.
