I like literary, high concept sci-fi in the vein of Ray Bradbury or Philip K. Dick. Bradbury in particular was great at really character-driven, emotion-driven stories, whether they were sci-fi, horror or contemporary. That's what I'm looking for in sci-fi. #MSWL

Brooks Sherman @byobrooksFor more examples of silver bullets that hit my werewolf #mswl heart, see: stories along the lines of Beast of Gévaudan, The Wolfman, An American Werewolf in London... or even perhaps something incorporating elements of, say, the Donner Party. 🐺
Since I've been asked, a clarification: I am very much the wrong agent for paranormal romance projects. But I'm here for fantasy, dark fantasy, and horror! #mswl
@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
