HISTORICAL FANTASY or MAGICAL REALISM (in the true, anticolonial sense) with rich details, generational sagas, transportive settings and just enough magic 🪄#mswl

near-future, high-concept SCI-FI with a literary bent, that dissects our own world more clearly through another—looking for hopeful postapocalypses, dystopian utopias, Gibsonian cyberpunk from new perspectives #mswl

HORROR either in the lush, gothic, Crimson Peakian vein with sputtering candles, twisted family trees, forbidden corridors, etc.; or with a modern-day edge that cuts straight down to the nervy quick of our current moment, and would make Ari Aster or Jordan Peele proud #mswl

FOLKLORE, MYTH, and FAIRYTALE-inspired stories that tell the old tales from new perspectives, deify new gods, and give the monster their say. Would particularly love to see non-european inspirations here (but also yrs of Latin say I am a SUCKER for the greco-roman canon🏺)#mswl

SPACE OPERA with widescreen, cinematic scope and more social than hard science (linguistics!anthropology!), with lurid worlds and robust politics that interrogate the genre’s colonial history; bonus points for cool aliens, ships with personalities, unlikely humanism #mswl

I keep think about the potential of latinx sci-fi, so I painted a thing pic.twitter.com/ZRFVApxbXy

between this and Oscar Isaac in the space armor I REALLY need someone to send me some latines in espace, for the love of god #mswl
