Since I've been getting some queries lately: I'm not currently considering middle-grade manuscripts! I mainly acquire adult horror for Nightfire + some select YA for Tor Teen. MG books are great! I'm just not the right editor for them πŸ™‚
(#mswl; or...#antimswl I guess?)

Rewatching Ready or Not and goddamn I love this movie so much. Humor + nail-biting tension + a protagonist who is Not Here to Deal With This Shit = a truly great time

I want a Big Queer Horror Book because there are so few and this is a Crime. I want to constantly be drowning in spooky queer stuff #MSWL

I’m personally terrified of deep, open water (there could be anything down there!!!) (growing up in Florida and being afraid of the ocean was a trip). Please send me horror like Jaws, Underwater, etc. πŸŒŠπŸ‘€ #mswl

In the same vein...someone please send me queer Midsommar. As my brilliant coworker @jruoxichen pointed out, the plot SHOULD have been: "Florence Pugh rejects mediocre man and joins Scandinavian lesbian collective to sing crop rites and do craft." I need it. #mswl

SEND ME QUEER HORROR PROJECTS. I've got a personal soft spot for bi protagonists (because...hi), but I'm looking for horror characters/stories from every part of the LGBTQ+ community. Give me characters grappling with sexuality/gender and ALSO monsters #mswl
