Hugo-nomd SFF Senior Editor @ Saga Press. Slytherin, philomath, nerd. Loves tea, gorgeous storytelling, and dad jokes. AKA Calamitea. Opinions mine.
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.)
Catherine Baker @richmondbridgeSeeing this tweet last thing plus reading a history of Eurovision for a book review is probably why I had a dream about older version of Anne Hathaway's character from THE PRINCESS DIARIES becoming mentor-judge for younger microstate princesses on a reality show. twitter.com/harleivy/statu…
Catherine Baker @richmondbridgeNot sure if they were actual microstate princesses. They might have been aspiring microstate princesses. Basically some royal version of The Bachelor as mediated through UnREAL and backstage dynamics on there. twitter.com/richmondbridge…
ℤoë “Haute Topic” ℚuinn @UnburntWitch[clears throat]
please give me a setting where there’s extremely archetypical dragons - they’re powerful, magical, and majestic.
except all of them deliver their lines with the shittiest accents New England has to offer.
Give me dragons with Boston and Jersey accents. Pls.
Yes good #mswl
🌼Elle🐱Gato🌼(they/them) @ellle_emI just want fantasy and scifi written for adults, about adults, that isn't a grimdark tangle of hopelessness and violence. I just want the aesthetics of the best YA fantasies transformed into stories for adults.
YES PLEASE #mswl
N. K. Jemisin @nkjemisinEvery time I see another mediocre Europe-based fantasy, I think of how many brilliant non-European fantasies got rejected to make room for it.
PLEASE send me non-European fantasy!
Epic fantasy, dark fantasy, heroic fantasy, sparkly fantasy, some other fantasy subgenre I haven't named, all of them!
I'm hungry for it. I don't just want one, I'm not looking to fill one slot. I want a lot of them. #mswl
