Maybe I’ve been reading too much news lately, but… #MSWL: SF & fantasy where characters’ core political/policy positions evolve over the course of the story, not because they’ve discovered a *conspiracy,* but because they’ve educated themselves about communities and their needs.

Send me all your goth mermaid books—preferably haunting and furious with lyrical writing and a decolonization vibe—please! #mswl

evelyn @drivinatninety

let’s unpack why teenage girls ask the same questions academics do in more accessible terms and get dragged through the mud

#mswl — this is everything I want in YA speculative fiction

also, perfect place to plug @ockaur’s forthcoming YA SF novel, RISE OF THE RED HAND, whose teen heroine asks alllll the uncomfortable questions about power and inequality—often with her fists 😉

Like many fantasy readers, I love a good boarding school novel. I want one that tackles the Anglo-American boarding school as a tool by which socioeconomic class stratification, western imperialism, and patriarchy are taught and reinforced among impressionable children. #MSWL

All this chatter about a vampire (and werewolf) comeback. I have thoughts...

I like my supernatural, human-but-not characters. But I’d love some new takes—not the resurrecting of classics that worked the last time around. Let’s see new perspectives get a bite at that apple.

If a vampire comeback materializes, I’m just going to remind the world that this thread exists and is still on my #MSWL. Give me all the PoC vampires with messy family drama and historical traumas that won’t go away esp. since great-granny vamp is still salty about the Opium Wars

#MSWL: Speculative novels that feel like poetry, that call to mind specific poems, without being entirely in verse. Specific poets I like for these purposes: Tennyson, Donne, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Langston Hughes, Omar Khayyam, Wallace Stevens (There are more! Surprise me!)
