And I'm always happy to see bighearted book club fiction, social horror, narrative nonfiction in the history and science categories, and YA! The best way to get to me is via Query Manager - I'm not currently accepting queries via e-mail unless specifically requested! (/end)

Adult:
- genre bending & blending across the board!
- fantasy and horror in the same vein as YA: gripping, dark, cerebral, exciting
- near future sci-fi with alternate/parallel realities, androids, and science that feels real
- queer romance with commercial hooks!

I'd love some horror too! I have recently listened to NEVER WHISTLE AT NIGHT and I loved it. I am looking for supernatural elements, creepy folklore and amazing atmospheric settings rather than tons of blood/gore. #mswl

In my pursuit of a graphic novel for a reluctant middle grade reader I realized that there is a shortage of MG horror graphic novels that are RECENT, so with that in mind when I reopen to queries I want that - preferably with an illustrator already attached. Okay, bye! #MSWL

I’ve been super into MG lately & would love to see:

Mascot horror. Eldritch horror. Atmospheric folk horror. Creepypasta/SCO Foundation horror.

Poppy Playtime. FNaF. Something that pushes the boundaries. Something kids would stumble upon on the iPad & be obsessed with.

One last particular spooky #MSWL : A Japanese horror featuring Japanese ghosts / folklore from a Japanese author would be AMAZING. If you can comp to a Chilla's Art game, I would be so happy. OR a horror centered around video games would be *chef's kiss*

I have space for YA on my list this year, so I am opening to YA queries from Palestinian/Arab/Muslim/Indigenous voices for a short time!

I love grounded SFF/all types of horror/commercial romcoms/and issues-driven stories.

6) For YA, I would love a high concept thriller, something broody and moody but also tightly plotted in the fantasy/horror space (I adore "House of Hollow"!!), and heart-wrenching, emotional sci-fi like "The Ones We're Meant to Find."

Hi Agents: Updating my #MSWL to let you know that I'm no longer able to acquire books that are strictly romance focused, though romantic sub-plots are fine. Still looking forward to seeing your thrillers, mild horror and stories with fantastical elements.

All of this is in addition to seeing anything that’s fantasy romance and fantasy horror, of course, but I wanted to dedicate a special thread to the above topics since I’m not seeing as much love in my subs list for them right now.

For sci-fi horror, I love it all. Creepy sentient alien spaceships, Event Horizon vibes, The Luminous Dead, The Last Astronaut,The Thing, The Descent, Underwater - give it to me…

I love seeing djinn on the page, Muslim characters as heroes. I love settings that feel like feudal Japan, or that have that Blue Eyed Samurai vibe. And anything that feels like epic fantasy x horror. And DRAGONS, always dragons.
