#mswl SF (broadly defined) & speculative literary. But weird. I want more weird. Absurdity. Humans with two heads and shit. Stuff that's funny & dark. Books that go too far.

#mswl literary fiction, for me, is all about meeting new people to get trapped inside for a while - i dearly love a close-perspective novel that can share shelf space with ottessa moshfegh and elif batuman. some i'm still thinking about from the past few years!

I am eager for more high-concept sci-fi and fantasy with literary and upmarket feel. Examples of my favorites in this space include THE POWER by Naomi Alderman, THE AGE OF MIRACLES by Karen Thompson Walker, and THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern.

For fiction, I am open to all genres. I <3 stories with dysfunctional, messy, and flawed protagonists. My taste gravitates towards literary and upmarket fiction (in the vein of EXCITING TIMES by Naoise Dolan, WHITE IVY by Susie Yang, THE VANISHING HALF by Brit Bennett)…

A #MSWL mini thread since I'm just dipping a toe into the querying world. 🧵

I love all fiction, with a soft spot for magical realism (think 100 YEARS, of course!). Lit fic, spec fic, and sci-fi are also high on my list. Fantasy like BLACK LEOPARD. Psych fiction that slowly unravels, like RED PILL. And not always, but sometimes, a great love story.

In MG: Stories that are lyrical and on the more literary range of the spectrum. Especially ones that have some invisible chronic condition representation that I think so important and something I’d love to see for this age category. #mswl

Hi folks, a quick lunchtime #MSWL: While I absolutely love narrative nonfiction, I am positively dying to see more literary and upmarket speculative fiction (especially from BIPOC authors!!!) in my query inbox.
