A friendly reminder that if you have a John Henry but SFF, or any other SFF take on American folklore, feel free to drop me a line. #MSWL
Still on the hunt for a #YA or adult historical, whether it's straight #historical, #fantasy, or has other speculative elements. Love a good romance subplot. Been craving Ice Age and early human stories as far as ancient history goes as well. #MSWL
James McGowan @jamerrsonI just finished The Broken Earth trilogy by @nkjemisin and I have never read a better fantasy. Deserving of every last Hugo. pic.twitter.com/39JRRC3tsf
#MSWL— send BookEnds fantasy agents something as amazing as this, please
Julia Ember @jules_chronicleThis beautiful, magical, steampunk Labyrinthian lesbian wedding is the f/f fantasy aesthetic we all deserve 😭😭😭😍🌈

#MSWL Since it's October, I would love something gothic and creepy, a dark fantasy, or a historical in #YA or #A. Or something like Into the Drowning Deep. Loved that anticipation of waiting to discover the truth followed by horror.
Sarah Guan @Sarah_GuanAfter Trump’s bizarre statement about exchanging love letters w/ Kim Jong Un, I can’t help thinking it‘d be an interesting SFF novel idea: 2 unstable dictators w/ huge egos inherit world-ending arsenals & a fraught standoff, begin a diplomatic correspondence, & fall in love
Ditto for my #MSWL -- make it twisty!

Still hungering for a really wonderful #thriller (any! but if you've got a female-led one, send it without hesitation!), and some really good adult #fantasy and #scifi. In #YA, don't hesitate: contemporary, boy voices, romance. Anything NEW and FRESH and EPIC. #MSWL
Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan#MSWL: feminist #SFF
I don’t mean “strong heroine succeeds in a sexist society.” That exists, and much of it isn’t feminist in a way that reflects the intellectual underpinnings of the concept.
I want “strong heroines work together—intersectionally—to dismantle the patriarchy.”
Given today's events, refreshing this #MSWL. Are you writing #SFF about misogynists getting their comeuppance and women tearing down the patriarchy with their bare hands? Tell your agent to send it to me.
How about some middle grade #MSWL today?
- Classic feel + animal POV (ONE AND ONLY IVAN, PAX)
- Fantasy, both lighthearted and dark (Thickety series, UNICORN QUEST)
- Quirky + puzzles + complex plots (Mysterious Benedict Society, YORK)
- Historical (WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE)
While we’re getting to know each other, how about some #mswl? Today I’ll talk about YA:
- Contemporary with earnest, engaging voices (WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, TO ALL THE BOYS, DUMPLIN’)
- Lush fantasy (CARAVAL, Grisha series)
- Sassy girl detective a la Veronica Mars
