Nikkita Bourbaki is sick of winning. @futurebirdMy suggestion, make a sci fi crime drama show about future NYC where there are no police as we now know them. (Except detectives, but even they would be different.)
Show the various agencies and community group that deal with crimes.
I mean #MSWL honestly.
Adam Michael Wood @adammichaelwoodA murder mystery series set in a turn-of-the-(20th)century Anglo-Catholic parish, that is meticulously correct about liturgical minutiae.
In some episodes, a minor error in liturgical practice turns out to be The Clue.
I mean #MSWL honestly.
Sharon Kuruvilla @Sharon_KuruvilaI always find it interesting that every sci-fi mil author ends up picking a branch of the military and bases all of the content around that specific branch; one has to wonder why we pick just one branch as our frame of reference, considering how different space combat is.
I’m going to jump off this thread to say that if you have milSF that deals with various military branches and the rivalries between them, I am SO interested. #MSWL
Rebecca Mix @rebeccarmixsomeone write me a book about a sex-repulsed ace girl who keeps making pacts with witches and demons and fae, promising them her firstborn for awesome spells and shit, because jokes on them she's NEVER HAVING KIDS and the shenanigans that follow when they all figure it out
Please write me this. #mswl
Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowmanAnyway coming from today’s discussion of old favorites: please send me more fun young-woman epic fantasy with beautiful dresses, high stakes, and some enemies-to-lovers, thank you. #mswl twitter.com/hannahnpbowman…
Do they end up CARING FOR EACH OTHER’S INJURIES in a TENT during a WAR until TRUST DEVELOPS and SEXUAL TENSION?? Is he shocked to see her in a DRESS not just MUDDY BREECHES after the battle is won? It is my kind of happy epic fantasy. (And I’m in the mood for that!) #mswl
Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowmanOh man I loved this book. twitter.com/drunk_austen/s…

Joel Cunningham @joelevardIs it too early to declare 2019 the Year of Sprawling Science Fantasy Novels That Giddily Give Zero Fucks for Genre Rules?
No, it is not. pic.twitter.com/cK60j1YP8G
PLEASE SEND ME THE NEXT DRAGONRIDERS OF PERN. #MSWL
a murder of tweets @RyanFMandelbaumand second, gizmodo has started a new series where we have scientists tell us what their dream experiment would be. if you've ever met @jbbeacham you probably already know his: the craziest particle accelerator ever imagined
3. A truly epic space opera. Either one with fascinating and unique worldbuilding (think THE STARS ARE LEGION or A DOOR INTO OCEAN) or one that's just plain fun as well as galaxy-spanning (think the Vorkosigan books). #MSWL
A delightful conversation with an editor this morning has reminded me of some things I'd really like to see #MSWL:
1. A prison-abolitionist utopian SF novel. Think THE DISPOSSESSED but specifically about restorative justice.
2. A really good first contact book like THE SPARROW.

The fact that Snape kills Dumbledore to maintain his cover is honestly one of the best things in those books. Someone write me a new story about a Snape figure making those choices, please. #MSWL
(Don’t tell me about RED RISING I am familiar with that one)
