Keir Alekseii @KeirAlekseiiIt's finally here! I am so pleased to tell the world that @smlechon and I are now Associate Agents at Azantian Lit! Many thanks to @jenazantian and the ENTIRE team at ALA.

Some of my favourite fantasy authors: Robin Hobb, Sharon Shinn, Lois McMaster Bujold, Jacqueline Carey, Charles de Lint, Guy Gavriel Kay, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Brian McClellen. If your fantasy feels like theirs, then send it to me! #MSWL
I'd also love to see historical fantasy (which is hard because you have to world build AND do tons of research, I know) about very specific times and places that aren't England during medieval times.
An update to an on-going #MSWL. I love non-western fantasy. And some people seem to think "just making it up" is non-western. It's not. So much of the fantasy we are familiar with is rooted in European folklore (fairies, dwarves, etc). 1/?
For my personal #MSWL I adore a wide range of genres but especially sci-fi, fantasy, horror and romance (or any mix of the above!) Particular interest in stories with LGBTQ+, disabled and diverse characters. Incidental representation a plus - no more bury your gays pls! #WMPitch
#MSWL someone I 💜 & his brother grew up in Miami & would escape on their little outboard motor boat into the ocean to fish or scuba dive. When life at homes not perfect, the ocean's a great escape. Give me historical 1960s Miami, two brothers, the ocean. Realistic or fantasy...

"Sci-fi & fantasy novels. I love them. I read a ton of them. But they have to be accessible. What does that mean? It means that readers who don't traditionally pick up much sci-fi/fantasy, can pick up one of these novels & enjoy it.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Shomari Kirkwood @MxOberonI feel like I want more fantasy with small scale stakes with a big sense of world. Less save the world/prevent the war. With more "Find the perfect flower to make a healing tea" and then explore the people and situations along the way. twitter.com/HiuGregg/statu…
- Adventure stories with strong friendship groups, think City Spies or The Last Day of Summer.
- Fantasy in the vein of Tristan Strong, or Aru Shah.
- Horror, horror, horror! Creepy, crawly, funny & subversive. Think The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place (4/6) #mswl
