#MSWL subterranean horror. If you have it, I really do want it. Please send that to me at any time via email. Catacombs/ sewers/ tunnels, if it's dark, claustrophobic, and you are not alone, I want it.

Just updated my #MSWL for anyone who wants to take a gander. Still looking for the next fantasy or sci-fi MS that pushes my buttons. I like a little darkness, a harrowing adventure. Also always looking for NF in a bunch of categories.

Since it's still January, time for an updated 2024 #MSWL ! I'm currently really on the lookout for psychological thriller (a la Riley Sager), mysteries (cozy and whodunnits please), and light horror (nothing too gory, I want to sleep at night). Dark academia a plus as well!

My main jam is thrillers, so I’d love to see more in this area. This includes horror (supernatural horror, not slasher horror), mystery, suspense, domestic thriller, psychological, etc. Fast-paced, high tension, high stakes, please! Ghosts & haunted houses are a huge draw for me.
