Fantasy

In MG, my list is fantasy-heavy, and, like, don't stop sending me MG fantasy because I love it--but I want to see more MG contemporary! Particularly one that will make me ugly cry on the train, and then carefully glue my heart back together. #MSWL

YA fantasy is evergreen, but what I want to see is where the genre is going next. A more contemporary direction, a new take on paranormal, twists and turns on some heavy-hitting elements like dragons, gods, monsters, the nature of story? Bring it to me!! #MSWL

I always forget to advertise this, but I AM on the look out for SFF in YA and Adult! I like grounded sci-fis like PREY OF GODS and THE LUMINOUS DEAD. Fantasy like Molly Tanzer. #mswl

A novel that uses lighter touches of fantasy to tackle a big issue #MSWL

#mswl I'm also looking for #graphicnovels, especially #fantasy. No real specifics I'm looking for here, just surprise me!

#mswl Some #fantasy court intrigue like THE CITY OF BRASS or GAME OF THRONES (but hard pass on all the sexual assault in the latter)

#mswl Something with the fun #DnD vibe of #CriticalRole or The Adventure Zone. Could be straight fantasy or a mix of game narrative and "IRL" plot about the group of gamers.

Thing I’ve noticed: my YA list skews more girl, and my MG list more boy. I’d like to balance that, but still maintaining my overarching tastes: high concept, good plots, not-issue-books, joy and exploration and fantasy (both literal and just escapism). #MSWL

#mswl Lesbian pirates, either historical or fantasy. I've seen a number of queries like this, but none have quite clicked with me so far. Still hoping!

#mswl Contained/closed-room mysteries or thrillers with an SFF or historical setting

#MSWL arranged marriages, marriage of convenience, enemies to lovers —in a fresh SFF setting!

Happy HollZABÉs ⛄️🌲❄️ @ZREllor · 24 Sep 2019

#MSWL high-concept MG fantasy w/ series potential, preferably with a female MC

MG + YA Historical Fiction/Historical Fantasy—I am a history buff myself + would particularly love to see stories which highlight a marginalized narrative that hasn’t been explored as much as the white narrative has in this space. #MSWL

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · 24 Sep 2019

Mermaids! PB, MG, YA, GNs.✨🧜‍♀️ I'm not looking for an epic fantasy, or a story in which someone discovers they’re a mermaid, or a romance in which a mermaid falls in love with a human. I'd love for it to be something a non-genre reader could get into. #MSWL

I'm still searching for a fantasy of any sorts inspired by Korean culture (this is for my historical fantasy K-drama lovers!), since this has been a very personal wish of mine as an agent for a very long time! #mswl

For #mswl day, here are my true loves: #SFF (adult and #YA), #ownvoices #nf #mg, #pb, #history and #science for kids, or...surprise me. Thank you for building #mswl , @jsinsheim
