. . . Alt. history (from a marginalized or unusual perspective; with an alternate outcome—e.g. THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE; introduces SFF element to a historical event—e.g. LEVIATHAN @ScottWesterfeld, but for the adult market)
Anarchopac @anarchopacWhy is some people's idea of interesting alternative history what if the Nazis won when they could be thinking about what if John Brown went on a successful slave owner killing rampage?
seriously. who's out there writing alt-history where something went right? (or at least, not wrong in the way that we know it?) #mswl
Before I forget! I love historical romance, historical fantasies, alternate historical fantasies etc etc in YA and Adult. I’d LOVE an f/f in a period story! Like duchess debauchery or some shit. With WOC!!! Bc racism is a recent phenomenon. #mswl
I'm still looking for an epic fantasy that's not just like every other epic fantasy. Something with an all female cast would be nice, a new take on magic (if there's even any magic at all), set in either an alternate history or a unique fantasy world. #mswl
Emily S. Keyes 🧜🏼♀️ @esc_keyI like alternate history but why do so many stories involve rewriting history so bad people win? Nazis, confederates, etc. If we can rewrite history, why not give the Native Americans dragons or something to fight off Columbus?
Yes! Yes! Yes! #MSWL
I'm a fan of fantasy, but specifically would LOVE to see more contemporary fantasy right now. Looking for something that is just fun to read--the perfect escape. Also would be open to alternate historical fantasy. #YA #MSWL
Preeti Chhibber @runwithskizzersIf I was an agent I think something that would be on the #mswl would be a Pirates of the Caribbean style YA except it's pirates from colonized lands going after the British Empire (@ericsmithrocks plz find this book and rep it thank you) pic.twitter.com/ge9r0SeIUA
For years I’ve been wanting alternate history where North and/or South America, Africa, etc., conquered and colonized Europe instead of other way around. I’ve pondered it but can’t quite visualize the full scope of the differences. I’d love to see how writers envision it. #MSWL
I smell an #alternatehistory novel! In 1916 there was a proposed Amendment to US Constitution to put all acts of war to a national vote, & anyone voting yes would have to register as a volunteer for service in US Army huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/04/ame… #MSWL #WritingPrompt #StoryStarter
