I’m itching for more horror: gothic, eerie, paranormal. (Just not straight up gore) #mswl

in honour of IWtV day, a humble #mswl request for lush, gothic, deliciously literary takes on vampires. comp me Woman, Eating or Let the Right One In or Carmilla or Certain Dark Things. the grittier, darker, and more grotesque the better. as we know:

I'm mostly looking for evocative and atmospheric literary fiction these days (my dark little heart tends to love being surprised and tenderized by the weird, strange, uncanny, gothic).

My MSWL can be found on, well, MSWL: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/zachary-honey/

In short: I'm still in the thriller game. Looking for rural set thrillers, mysteries, select horror and select historical fiction. Bring it on!

saw "vacation-gothic" as a phrase in copy and am immediately making it a foundational part of my personality. Yes! Send me your vacation-gothics! Take me somewhere beautiful specifically to horrify me! #mswl

If you are writing a Southwestern Gothic, please step to the front of the class. I'm desperate for something dark and unsettling and folkloric set in the stark desert. #mswl

Ultimately, if the vibes are dark academia, witchy, creepy forests, poisonous plants, gothic (whether horror or historical!), or anything with a charismatic leader and a cult, it’s right up my alley.

For horror, I want to be scared. I gravitate towards social and psychological horror (think WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING or MEXICAN GOTHIC)
I also love folklore and mythology. I grew up around forests and mountain ranges, so something like THIS WRETCHED VALLEY is always on my radar.

When I'm in the mood for something slightly darker, I enjoy gothic-inspired fiction with old-creaking manors, wintery settings and eerie undertones...
