#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!)
I’m craving speculative stories about immigration & community that cast a wide net. Give me the Ellis Island “empty pockets/big dreams” classic. Give me knowledge workers, refugees, sprawling mixed-status families. Give these characters magic, spaceships, eldritch secrets.

A quick thread on the North African prophetess queen, Al Kahina who fought against the Ummayd armies with the skills of a warrior and the powers of a sorceress
This is an amazing story. #MSWL (It’s practically already speculative!)

Uterine Dispatch @uterinedispatchWhat if, when a woman died during an unsafe #abortion, the man who got her pregnant died too?
THIS THREAD. This is a killer (pun very much intended) speculative fiction premise. Is someone writing this? Please? #MSWL
