Okay #writer and #amquerying friends, I'm dying for some new #adult #horror-- could be speculative, realistic, paranormal, what have you. I'm particularly keen to see #horror that explores important contemporary issues, a la Get Out. You've got it, I wanna read it. #MSWL

So, if you are an author of quirky, adventurous, challenging and bold sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, please be in touch. And if you are an author who isn’t quite sure whether your work is for the YA or adult market, query me and we’ll figure it out.

I’m particularly eager to find voices from historically underrepresented perspectives in adult SF/F and horror, and as a queer man, I am especially drawn to LGBTQIA+ and feminist perspectives for those genres as well. #MSWL

The other day a senior editor brilliantly observed, "Teens read to become fans." And this...yes, this feels so true to me, and I love it. Give me your books that kids and teens will want to cosplay as. Give me your fandom-inspiring tales. #MSWL

You know here's another thing: I really want #YA and #MG from the pov of underprivileged kids, especially in non-coastal states. #MSWL

I'd love to see more #YA fantasy, sci-fi, and speculative fiction with queer characters at the center. Basically just take your fav HBO hits and give them some LGBTQ leads. #MSWL

As always, I'm looking for stories by marginalized voices. I'd really want to see more body diversity in #MG and #YA. #MSWL

#MSWL What I'll call "Shiny Sci-Fi," a la The Thousandth Floor or Minority Report, with world-building that shows both the polished surface and the grimy world underneath. #YA #MG

#MSWL time! I'd love an #MG like The Hazel Wood: a fantasy grounded in a specific American city, where magic mixes with the every day.

Tomorrow is #MSWL day! And my wishlist is more of a wish-tome. As ever, my big focus is #MG and #YA, so if you've got something wonderful, weird, and/or exciting to share with kids and teens, watch this space!
