@hannahnpbowman @maxgladstone don't forget how centaurs and merfolk aren't classified as people and everyone's like oh that's fine

Re: this thread, if someone wants to write me a fantasy novel about a kid who goes to magic school but realizes the entire structure of the magical world needs to be overthrown, I would be 100% there for that. Bonus points if they have to side with the dark wizards to do it #MSWL

Here’s the thing about the end of Moana: she doesn’t save Te Fiti by putting back the heart. She saves her by really seeing her while she’s still broken. That makes me cry. (Also: basically my #MSWL forever!)

Following up on my #MSWL thread, some books I've read in the past year (not my clients!) that I've really loved:

SEA OF RUST -- postapocalyptic robots at war (way cooler than that sounds). What happens after the robot apocalypse?

There's been a request for a #MSWL now that I'm re-opening to queries. So, a thread on what I most want to see. (This is NOT EXHAUSTIVE! I'm open to all kinds of adult SFF.)

I want, like, a really beautiful classic-style fantasy with a quest in it. “You will see rare beasts and have unique adventures” (Auden). #MSWL

Strike in space! twitter.com/trgenovese/sta…

Seriously, somebody write me a near-future strike-in-space book. Like The Martian, but with collective nonviolent resistance. #MSWL

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 12 Jan 2017

I want a medieval thriller. Like Sharon Kay Penman's THE QUEEN'S MAN. #MSWL

P.S. If someone wants to write me SF with the otherworldly creepy beauty of FORBIDDEN PLANET but without the sexism, that'd be great. #MSWL
