Literary agent. Prison abolitionist. Baby theologian. “Without her, more characters would have lived.” Let's tell revolutionary stories together. She/her.

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.
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
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.

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
Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowmanIn SF, I love anything set in space. Esp. big-idea SF (think A FIRE UPON THE DEEP), but also spaceship adventure books. #MSWL
In both fantasy and SF, I'm a sucker for books about revolutions and characters facing only bad choices. #MSWL
Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowmanWithin fantasy, I'd love a beautiful world with beautiful magic. But I also tend toward books that explore the cost of violence. #MSWL
