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 would love to see more SFF MG and contemporary YA in my inbox. #MSWL

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

I would really love to find an exciting, middle grade adventure/ fantasy set somewhere other than the US or Europe.

Great example: THE SERPENT'S SECRET by @Sayantani16

#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.โ€ฆ

Good morning! I would love to see an adult SFF project with a thriller plot. Murder, mayhem, heists--something exciting that MOVES, set inside an immersive speculative world. #MSWL
