Fantasy

Melissa Ann Singer @maseditor · 24 Sep 2019

I've read a lot of fairy tales and folk tales from a range of traditions. Fantasy novels that mine those veins have great appeal to me.

A few more from my YA #MSWL:
- Kiera Cass's THE SELECTION, but queer
- A new ANGUS, THONGS, & FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING (dated, I know, but nothing's made me laugh that hard since)
- Something different in fantasy (paranormal? a unique format? surprise me!)

I'm dying to find more accessible adult sci-fi and fantasy novels, along the lines of @ChuckWendig @pengshepherd @DelilahSDawson and @KatWithSword.

I've read everything they've written, and would love to find a SFF novel that makes me feel like The Book of M. #MSWL

How about a fantasy novel where someone is stealing art/artifacts in order to repatriate them?

I'm breaking my Twitter hiatus for #MSWL Southern Gothic, Romance that goes beyond the I Do, Complicated Friendships with a Judy Blume feel, UF that isn't following a formula, and Military Scifi/Dystopian @VictressLit

Complicated or toxic friendships YA or A, contemporary or historical. Even fantasy. If your comp is The Favourite I’d love to see it. #mswl

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

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 24 Sep 2019

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

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 24 Sep 2019

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

Dorian Maffei @DorianMaffei · 24 Sep 2019

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!

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · 24 Sep 2019

#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)

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · 24 Sep 2019

#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.

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · 24 Sep 2019

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

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · 24 Sep 2019

#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!

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · 24 Sep 2019

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

Happy HollZABÉs ⛄️🌲❄️ @ZREllor · 24 Sep 2019

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