@wensday95 wants #Historicalfiction with a slight #speculative or #horror bent like Alma Katsu's THE HUNGER or Sarah Perry's THE ESSEX SERPENT
BONUS: she also wants contemp mystery/thriller where setting is integral like Jane Harper's books or Attica Locke's BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD.
io9 @io9The first trailer for Simon Pegg's Slaughterhouse Rulez promises a bloody proper fight.
Trailer for a new Simon Pegg movie? My day is already 1000% improved.
*cough, cough* Also, writers: This is what I'm talking about for my YA horror #mswl...
Shelly Romero @_smromeroAs someone who was a spooky sorority girl, I’d love to read more sorority horror. Give me dark sisterhood rituals, socials/formals gone wrong, and sisters teaming up to stop a Ghostface like killer.
As someone who attended college without a Greek life, #MSWL

Bess Cozby @besscozbyI watched "The Blair Witch Project" this weekend, and am real proud of myself for sleeping afterward.
It makes me want to read a YA horror in that vein, where your imagination makes everything worse. Urban legends. Haunted woods. Someone make me afraid to sleep, please.
Yes, please! #MSWL
My latest suspense/mystery #MSWL:
+Domestic suspense with a fresh commercial hook
+Small-town mysteries with series potential, female protags
+magical realism (set in known world), spec fic, horror, supernatural elements
+WHERE MY WITCHES AT
T.S. Ferguson @TeeEssSubjects I'd love to find/read/acquire novels about:
The Lost Colony of Roanoke
Science-based thrillers (a la Crichton or Preston&Child)
Outer space alien horror (a la the Alien franchise)
Gothic Supernatural NOLA (a la Anne Rice)
OMG! Yes! These are literally ALL on my own #mswl!

#MSWL Thinking about the dichotomy of things & I want a near-future DYSTOPIAN where nothing is cleaned up & pretty. Want the horror (w/out major gore) of floods, earthquakes, death etc w/the thread of hope. Both pain & beauty. Give it to me...would love this with a literary feel.
