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.
⟡ #MSWL Anything that blends the genres of Speculative Sci-Fi with Contemporary Fantasy/Magical Realism
⟡ Anything that comps THE MURDERBOT DIARIES by Martha Wells
C.L. Polk @clpolkoh gosh
i get emails from readers sometimes and lately it's been readers who have gained strength from Soulstar because of Zelind being nonbinary with specific nonbinary pronouns and not a single person in the book bats an eyelash
thank you. I wrote it because I needed it too
#MSWL for more books that do this. Within the genres I rep, of course. More positive non-binary rep please. 🙏

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.
