I’m so excited to see what fresh #horror stories are out there, but honestly I’m especially eager to see manuscripts that blow away all my #mswl expectations! Cheers to 2020!

I am very interested in seeing something that poignantly captures and works off the abject horror of what we’re doing at the borders (literal children in CAGES), especially #ownvoices #mswl

My favorite themes & tropes: monsters (werewolves, sirens, witches, vampires), hauntings, cults, fairytales, toxic relationships turned fatal, family dynamics, class & power imbalances, revenge, meta horror, body horror, psychological terror... #mswl

Friday Black (@NK_Adjei), Her Body & Other Stories (@carmenmmachado), The Pisces (@melissabroder): Speculative fiction with a dark bent, surreal Twilight Zone-type stories gone malicious, literary fiction with subtle horror veins. #mswl

Mongrels (@SGJ72), A Head Full of Ghosts (@paulGtremblay), When We Were Animals (Joshua Gaylord): Coming of age stories with monsters as metaphors, monsters inside of us, cleverly subverted horror tropes with contemporary twists. #mswl
