Related to both of the previous: character-driven, slow burn horror. Less slasher and more the kind where it feels like we're slowly digging beneath the surface of a seemingly normal town or place and finding the sinister monstrosity beneath. #MSWL

Going to put a bit of a wild #MSWL out here. If anyone's working on an adult novel that can comp Scream AND something super millennial like The Herd or A Special Place for Women, I want to see it. My query box is open (query@psliterary.com) for some suspense/thriller/horror.

The Fear Street movies are everything I love about horror and more. #MSWL I’d love to see anything along these lines in YA horror. Make it contemporary, sassy, full of friendship, enemies that band together, and don’t forget the jump scares. #FearStreetNetflix

“I’d really love to get more YA horror in my inbox. Smart horror. I don’t want gore, I want a story that creeps me out, and asks questions I don’t want answers to.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

Multiverses and space opera! I love expansive worlds with a close knit cast of characters, like NOPHEK GLOSS. I love the strange and alien, horror in space, and found family tropes. Another recent favourite of mine was THE SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS. #MSWL

Horror! Folk horror with a creeping sense of atmosphere like THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS and THE TWISTED ONES. I’m fascinated by cults and spooky goings-on and literally anything with a witch. I would love to see some non-Western horror in the style of HIS HOUSE. #MSWL

2. Horror across the board: Spooky stories for MG, lyrical & atmospheric YA horror, adult horror that will surprise me—literary-leaning writing with propulsive plots. I am open to & love nearly all kinds of horror.

I usually prefer contemporary or near-historical realism, but will sometimes consider speculative fiction, fantasy, psych thrillers, lite dystopian, literary horror, and paranormal (especially dealing with ghosts). #MSWL

Pivoting from eating among the rich to just plain eating the rich (particularly while we’re on the subject of Forbidden Meat Rooms) I’m always looking for luxury foodie horror. #mswl - with uncompromising social commentary, with sharp wit, and with a strong stomach
