Fantasy

Any Latinx writers out there ever want to do a retelling of Zorro? Like a gender bent one or a modern one or a fantasy one or something? I would love to see it! #mswl

Can I have like a YA Romcom set in a medieval fantasy world? Maybe a GN of this? #MSWL

I am in the mood for an epic fantasy, but something that stands out! Not a rehash of the usual stuff! #mswl

Becky LeJeune @BeckyLeJeune · Feb 6

First and foremost, #ownvoices! I rep YA and adult: horror, SFF, thrillers/mysteries (not cozies), historical, and general fiction. Also COOKBOOKS! #mswl

My SFF feelings apply to YA, too -- although in YA I am more open to Contemporary Fantasy/Paranormal than I am in Adult.

In YA and MG, I'm really looking for everything and anything, but lately my tastes have skewed more Contemporary. #MSWL

Sam B. Farkas @SamBFarkas · Feb 5

On to SFF! I am here for light SFF. I have trouble with space operas and anything with elves, orcs, etc.

I like my sci-fi techy and plausible (i.e. RECURSION by Blake Crouch) and my fantasy grounded in history/folktale (think SPINNING SILVER, CITY OF BRASS, THE POPPY WAR). #MSWL

For #MSWL in adult sci-fi/ fantasy:

- contemporary fantasy that's "city as character"

- anything that reminds me of a CW show (lol)

- positive climate fiction

- near-futuristic SF with anti-capitalist critique in the vein of PARASITE

For my current #MSWL click on the picture to see all the details. You can also always find my most recent manuscript wishlist on the Triada US website.

I'm also looking for unique MG and YA - horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary (and YA thrillers). Your voice and premise need to stand out. I want UNIQUE. Send query and 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL #amquerying #WritingCommunity

"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

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 31

Closing out the day & week with a #mswl: I love middle grade adventure series (whether paranormal, sci-fi, or fantasy) with lots of heart & humor. If that's what you're querying, I'd love to see your project!

Replying to @AshleyHearn

Folkloric fantasy and fairytales with lush world building and gorgeous prose like WINTERWOOD, SORCERY OF THORNS, and HOUSE OF SALT & SORROWS. #MSWL

Fantasy will always me my 💜. But I'm especially on the lookout for contemporary fantasy, urban fantasy, and paranormal right now. Examples: A BLADE SO BLACK, THE DEVOURING GRAY, and CEMETERY BOYS. #MSWL

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearn · Jan 30

Replying to @AshleyHearn

Dark fantasy, gothic fantasy, horror-fantasy blends, and stories with subversive religious themes. Think SERPENT & DOVE, WICKED SAINTS, and THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING. #MSWL

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearn · Jan 30

Replying to @AshleyHearn

Historical novels both fantasy and realistic—especially overlooked or underrepresented stories in history (though I'm pickier when it comes to 20th century history). Examples of what I'm looking for: DREAD NATION and BLOOD COUNTESS! #MSWL

So, if you are an author of quirky, adventurous, challenging and bold sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, please be in touch. And if you are an author who isn’t quite sure whether your work is for the YA or adult market, query me and we’ll figure it out.

John Cusick @johnmcusick · Jan 28

I’m particularly eager to find voices from historically underrepresented perspectives in adult SF/F and horror, and as a queer man, I am especially drawn to LGBTQIA+ and feminist perspectives for those genres as well. #MSWL

John Cusick @johnmcusick

I am so excited to announce that I am now representing adult and crossover sci-fi, fantasy, and horror! MG & YA will continue to be a large part of my list (and I'm always looking for more!), but now I'm also actively pursuing and selling genre projects in the adult space.

So what am I looking for? I want explosive, colorful, funny, bizarre, exciting stories that examine technology, identity, and human relationships of all kinds. As in kidlit, I’m eager for vital, personal, and poignant stories in the #adult sf/f and horror genres. #MSWL
