BIG #MSWL for Crossover/Adult SFF
I'm looking for a book that engages with the abuses perpetrated against indigenous people, in particular women, and the colonizer's legacy of violence and oppression.
Please spread the word. I need this book. The world needs this book.
I'd like a MG Fantasy that features lesser-known creatures of myth and legend (be that because they don't figure as prominently in mythology, or because they are from traditions ignored by the European-centric literary canon). #mswl
There are so many things about Black Panther that I loved, but one of my favorites was the depth of the worldbuilding, and how we saw what life was like without the influence of colonization. I would love to see a SFF project that grapples with similar questions. #MSWL
#MSWL: I'd love to find a YA Historical Fantasy with the kind of incredible voice and expert worldbuilding found in @jessica_shea's remarkable BORN WICKED/Cahill Witch Chronicles.
Also, if you haven't read those books, you. are. missing. out.
Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen#MSWL: Lyrical, gorgeously-written YA fantasy with lush worldbuilding and fascinating magic that can be comped to the masterpiece that is #StrangetheDreamer. twitter.com/Brian_Geffen/s…
Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerI'd like to read a mystery or a thriller set in a SFF world. Anyone have any recommendations?
