Pulp Librarian @PulpLibrarianToday in pulp: a woman with great hair is fleeing a gothic house. Why?
Well this is a signal to the reader: they hold in their hands one of ‘those’ books – not a historical romance or a ghost story, but a modern gothic romance.
Let's learn more... #FridayMotivation pic.twitter.com/C0G4CJkzta
Excellent thread and my #mswl to a T.
Lee Jackson @VictorianLondonThe Ladies Guide Associations of the 1890s (female chaperones, tour guides, general helpers for hire) positively scream for a cosy detective series. pic.twitter.com/s3iyqUPrsW
I'm always in the mood for a ghost story! A fresh take on classic themes (I am a sucker for haunted houses) for adults, spunky kids in spooky houses for MG, nonfiction how-tos: how to build a haunted house, Halloween how-tos, crafty Halloween. #MSWL QueryManager.com/Stacey3Seas
The New Yorker @NewYorkerThe largest living organism on earth today is a fungus in Oregon just beneath the ground, covering about 3.7 square miles and estimated to weigh as much as 35,000 tons. nyer.cm/gojBGX5
Philip Parker @parkerpj01@HistoriumU @FolkloreThurs Virtually unique to British Isles, #Bee Boles are recesses in walls were straw baskets containing #honeybees were kept (before bee hives invented). Mostly from C17 and C18, thousands remain. pic.twitter.com/g9Zdd7WTmI
#MSWL I'm always looking for nonfiction on bees. History of bees. Beekeeping. Beekeeper fashion. Honey recipes. Art featuring bees. You get the picture. ;)
Nat'l Cowboy Museum @ncwhmThese are Tad Lucas’ white angora woolly women's chaps built by Blake Miller Saddlery. She was a champion bronc rider, relay racer, trick rider and popularized chaps as a rodeo fashion element for female contenders in early 1920s. Who wants a pair? #HashtagTheCowboy Thanks, Tim pic.twitter.com/maEWoN2UOn
Frank Angones @FrankAngonesA humble hot take: They keep half-heartedly threatening to make Indiana Jones sequels and prequels. But you know who actually deserves their own franchise? Marion Goddamn Ravenwood. pic.twitter.com/Ji8vX20HMX
Pope Guilty @popeguiltyIf I were a billionaire I would amass a collection of purportedly haunted artifacts, books, and so on. Not because I believe in the supernatural, but because if you're going to be a billionaire you should at least have the goddamned common courtesy to be interestingly sinister.
**I am closed to queries until April 2020**

#MSWL nonfic for history of magic, automatons, antiques (all types).
Dan Snow @thehistoryguyJeanne de Clisson the 'Lioness of Brittany' watched her husband's execution today in 1343. Then went on one of history's most epic revenge sprees. She sailed the Channel becoming a legendary pirate. Capturing & massacring French crews but always left one survivor to tell the tale
Felt cute. Might raise the dead later. IDK.
Today when I opened the antique shop, I found books & boxes a'tumbled. This isn't the first time I've given the shop the side-eye but now may blame the new 19th-c doll. Or not. It could be literary raccoons.
#MSWL ghost stories!
Victoria Selvaggio @vselvaggio1And now I want queries about this and other fascinating mold or is it molds? I am closed to submissions but will look at a project about this geared toward kids! My email is noted on our Storm Literary Agency website. Put "mold submission" in the subject line. twitter.com/staceyigraham/…
