Navah [It's Always Eurovision Season] Wolfe
Hugo-nomd SFF Senior Editor @ Saga Press. Slytherin, philomath, nerd. Loves tea, gorgeous storytelling, and dad jokes. AKA Calamitea. Opinions mine.
Navah Wolfe 🇳🇴🇦🇺🇸🇲🇪🇸🇬🇷🇺🇦 @navahwSometimes I remember all over again that the new @keiinoband single is dropping tomorrow and get unreasonably (fine okay completely reasonably) excited all over again.
The thing is, @keiinoband isn’t just my breakout Eurovision delight, they’re also the found family musical group of my #mswl heart.
They make great joyful music, but I also really love their friendship, the way they always make sure all 3 of them get to talk in interviews, etc.
Thessaly La Force @ThessalyAgatha Christie’s unplanned pre-divorce spa trip (where she checked in using the name of her husband’s mistress!) sparked a 10-15,000 person search party, a seance, and the police rifling through her drafts for clues. nytimes.com/2019/06/11/boo…
M S W L: Agatha Christie’s disappearance, but SFF.
(yes I know about the Doctor Who episode, there is room for more than one Agatha Christie SFF adventure in the multiverse.) #mswl
your friend myk @mykolaunpopular fantasy opinion: dragons shit gold. that's why the lairs are filled with it etc, they don't collect it they create it. Think about it - do you ever see dragons bringing sacks of gold home?
No, it's whole cows. Then time passes, then there's gold.
Not rocket science.
PSA, if you're not watching American Horror Story: Apocalypse, you're missing some of the most narratively fascinating material on TV right now.
In related news, #mswl a book as bold and stylish and wild as AHS: Apocalypse.
Gavia Baker-Whitelaw @Hello_Tailorare there any good sci-fi short stories etc set in a planet/culture where ocean exploration is treated as the equivalent of space exploration
Forestofglory @ForestofglorySo today "Where Have All the SFF Moms Gone?" is out at @feministponies. If you've followed me for a bit you've probably noticed I have lot of feelings about moms in SFF. Well I finally took those feelings and wrote something ladybusiness.dreamwidth.org/2018/09/11/gue…
This is a good essay. I am always on the hunt for great SFF books that center mothers! #mswl
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvans#MSWL American Horror Story: Coven...but good. Gothic boarding schools, empowered women, clash of ideals, exploration of how history and culture shapes magic
Oh my god, yes yes YES, I have been wanting this FOREVER.*
(*since I first watched Coven.)
I really love ensemble stories (what I like to call "the rebel group") in which a group of disparate personalities are forced together in a small space (a spaceship, a hideout, HQ, etc) and you get lots of fun character pairings bouncing off each other. #mswl
LRT: I'm always looking for Jewish SFFH that feels true to my (Orthodox) experiences, or uses Jews/Judaism in ways that feel natural and believable, and not forced or shoehorned in. I am aware that this is a super specific ask, but an editor can dream! #mswl
Just a few quick #mswl clarifications! I love sharing my super specific, random requests with you guys! But just a heads up that I can only accept agented submissions. And, @SagaSFF only publishes adult SFFH, so I'm only looking for adult projects. Thanks!
Okay, this one's real specific. I want someone to write the weird, post-apocalyptic future inspired by this song, in which Make Believe Town is a mess because the holodeck safety features (hunting hounds!) have been disabled somehow. #mswl
Top of my #mswl: An adult fantasy that deals with fucked up post-Narnia Pevensies.
(yes I am aware that people have already written great books like this, I want MORE and DIFFERENT ONES, okay? okay.)
