Finally watched The Lighthouse and that is the creepy, atmospheric, unreliable narrator, secret-laden, seagull-as-terror, "neither person's the better one", dramatic monologuing, post-Lovecraftian horror I'm looking for #mswl

For #MSWL in horror

- Creepy Southern/Western Americana or non-Western world Gothic

- horror that interrogates sociopolitical fears

- anything you can see Bruce Campbell starring in

- no exploitative violence against femmes and POC pls

Diana M. Pho πŸ“š @writersyndrome · Feb 5

For #MSWL in adult sci-fi/ fantasy:

- contemporary fantasy that's "city as character"

- anything that reminds me of a CW show (lol)

- positive climate fiction

- near-futuristic SF with anti-capitalist critique in the vein of PARASITE

In light of the continuing clusterf*ck in the book world, popping up on your feed to casually mention

1) I'm one of the handful of QWOC editors at a Big 5

2) I'm in a buying mood for more SF/F/H for adult YA & MG

3) My list is majority queer and POC authors. And I'd love more.

I have some #MSWL asks floating that I'd love to see:

For young adult:

M. T. Anderson's Feed for the post-Instagram, post-TikTok generation

a YA version of The Wire (but with more funny bits and maybe an explosion or two).

a modern queer version of Ten Things I Hate about You
