(And for the search engines: that’s, yes; please send me adult or YA second-world fantasy with Jewish elements, or YA Jewish magical realism, Jewish Speculative fiction, literary Jewish fantasy novels, et cetera #mswl)

I hope we'll see more Jewish second-world fantasy. Jewish culture is full of myths and magic that would be fresh and breathtaking in a fantasy setting.

Hi, yes, please send these directly to my inbox. I’m here for your Ruth or Esther retelling, your golems, your genderbent Solomon, your modern Samson with an Ariana-length pony. Break my heart and take me to sit Shiva in a lush enchanted forest. Teach me about ru’ach magic. #MSWL

#MSWL Please please please adult epic fantasy that delves into class politics or social issues in societies I've never seen before, with articulate female/nb/trans MAIN characters & explosive stakes. Lots of magic, lots of emotion, romance welcome!

#MSWL I would love to get a magical realism book. Something like SAWKILL GIRLS, or WICKED DEEP.

Renewing my #MSWL for atmospheric reads, and magical realism.

I’d love to have a YA set in Ancient Egypt. It can be historical, or a YA fantasy with magic, and gods and all the details. This is something I’ve always wanted to read! Send me some! #MSWL

Magical realism is something I love overall and would like to see more of, both in YA and adult. Would love to have some Latinx voices in for this one! #MSWL

I'd love to see some adult fiction set in the seedy, gritty underbelly of an 18th- or 19th-century city. A super immersive setting with magic? A mystery? Both?? Whaddaya got for me #amquerying writers? #mswl
